Product Description

The WattsVIEW 50 kW  sensor comes with a USB cable and plugs directly into your computer.  It  measures Volts, Amps, Watts, Amp hours,  and Watt Hours.  This data is sent once each second to your computer through the USB cable.  It uses RS232 serial communication protocal.    You can write your own software or use the WattsVIEW software.    Note:  There are 3rd parties that sell wireless USB options for your convenience. 

The free WattsVIEW software displays data for up to 10 sensors at one time and performs real time Watt Hour (KWH) and Amp Hour calculations.  Please test drive the software now by going to downloads and make sure it meets your needs before purchasing the sensor.

The advantage this model has over the WattsVIEW serial product is that it uses a USB plug which connects directly to your computer.

WHATS IN THE BOX:

Click on the above images to see full size screen shots of the free WattsVIEW software.   WattsVIEW DC power monitoring software for Windows Or MAC (OSX) monitors and displays and logs real time DC Volts, Amps, Watts, & Kilowatts for solar panels, wind turbines, pedal power bicycle generators, hydroelectric generator, and thermo-electric generating as well as any kind of DC battery charging or output monitoring.

If you would like to write your own program to collect the data via linux, .NET, C, C++, VB, Python,  then you can use standard RS232 communication settings of 9600 baud to capture the data, see specifications for baud settings.  This is a USB sensor, but the windows or MAC operating system sees it as a serial port because it has an adapter built in made by FTDI.  You will need to load the FTDI drivers provided on the install disk or from the FTDI website.
