Smart Solar Meter

alt 1


The Smart Solar Meter is an IoT device that measures real home current consumption. This is a turn-key project where Robosavvy had to design, execute and provide a complete solution for current measurement. Robosavvy supplied 2 prototypes and 200 units of this equipment.

The purpose of the equipment is to determine how much current is flowing to a circuit. In this case measure the current flowing to a home or industrial facility. This is done either by digital reading (light sensor) or by current transformer probe (clamp probe). This allows measurement of the current in a conductor without the need to make physical contact with it, or to disconnect it for insertion through the probe.

Robosavvy performed the following tasks:

  • PCB Shield design according to specifications
  • Design of light sensor, including electrical part and mechanical housing
  • Mechanical design of a protective metal sheet
  • Manufacturing and assembly of electronic boards – PCB shield + PCB light sensor
  • Manufacturing of the metal box
  • Design of light sensors housing
  • Install the client software – configuration of Beaglebone Black
  • Supply of clamp probes for current measurement
  • Final assembly of the equipment: metal housing with the Beaglebone board, PCB shield, button and power plug
  • Assembly of light sensors with soldered cable on the sensor and crimped RJ11 plug.
  • Testing of the full equipment

  • The equipment to be supplied consists of a kit with the following components:

    1x – PCB Shield for Beaglebone black

    1x – Light sensor with 1m cable with crimped RJ11 plug

    1x – Light sensor with 2m cable with crimped RJ11 plug

    2x – Amp measure clamp

    1x – Metal housing with on/off switch and power input connector IEC C8

    1x – Power cord IEC C7 with 1,2m
