Yoctopuce on BeagleBone Black: Quick Review

By Sébastien Rinsoz, in Reviews, december 13,2013.

In the last few years, a great number of cheap mini- (or even micro-) computers have become available on the market. Most use an ARM processor and a Linux operating system. The most well known is obviously the Raspberry Pi. Recently, a new competitor has emerged: the BeagleBone Black. We decided to order one to see what its board is worth.

GSM temperature monitoring

By mvuilleu, in Measures, december 06,2013.

This week, our mission is to check, through temperature monitoring, that the heating system of a church is working as it should. We are going to show you how to set up the remote monitoring of the surrounding air temperature and of the heater temperature, without needing to write a single line of code. The specificity of the project is that the church (quite logically) doesn't have a wifi network. So we need to use a GSM or 3G connection.

High Power measurements by USB

By mvuilleu, in Measures, november 29,2013.

People often ask us whether we have a module to measure electric consumption on a high power system. Indeed, the Yocto-Watt is well suited to measure the power consumed by an electrical appliance, but its design limits the measurable power to 16A. This is not enough for example to monitor the global electric consumption of a house, of an industrial electrical installation of some size, nor of a three-phase electric system. Let's have a look at existing solutions for this type of applications.

An autonomous water rocket launcher

By martinm, in Internet of Things and DIY, november 15,2013.

You probably heard of water rockets and might know that it's quite easy to build them yourself with soda bottles and hose nozzles. This type of "toy" can be propelled to quite breathtaking heights, which makes it a rather fun hobby. Well, Yoctopuce looked into it...
