Monitoring electric consumption over GSM

By mvuilleu, in Measures and Internet of Things, september 09,2016.

A few years ago, we explained why the Yocto-Watt is limited to 16A and we gave you some clues on how to measure high currents. But, at that time, we didn't have a simple solution to offer for the most current application: measuring and transmitting the main consumption parameters of a power distribution panel. This gap is today filled and we offer you a detailed solution, easy to implement, based on commercial components.

Overview of the UWP library

By seb, in New stuff and Programming, august 10,2016.

Several customers have tried to use our C++ or C# libraries with Windows 10 IoT on a Raspberry Pi. Unfortunately, this doesn't work because Windows 10 IoT is not a "true" Windows: it doesn't allow you to run Win32 applications. You can run only the new universal applications. We are currently working on a solution which would allow you to use our modules on all the Windows 10 versions, including Windows IoT. This post gives us the opportunity to review the matter...
