Reading PZEM-004t power sensor (new version v3.0) through Modbus-RTU protocol over TTL UART
# Reading PZEM-004t power sensor (new version v3.0) through Modbus-RTU protocol over TTL UART
# Run as:
# python3 pzem_004t.py
# To install dependencies:
# pip install modbus-tk
# pip install pyserial
import serial
import modbus_tk.defines as cst
from modbus_tk import modbus_rtu
# Connect to the sensor
sensor = serial.Serial(

Please, can you help? (new to RS485 )

Check the rx tx pin & try to cross the cable in your USB to TTL dongle

This works like a charm. Thx for sharing. I'm using this in a statistics project for my outdoor spa.

Regards !

Thank you for this effort! Worked like a charm on my version 3 board under Linux. Great to test the board before moving it to Raspberry Pi monitoring system (Domoticz) to be certain it was working.
Cheers!!

hello to all, i'm trying to conect my pzem004t v3 to HA to get the readings, but i don't understand how and where to put your file?
Can you explain to me, please?
