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

# Connect to the sensor

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?

Hello, first of all, thank you for your work. I used your code and it works perfect. In this moment, I want to expand my current work I want to use three PZEM sensor. I looked into the modbus_tk library documentation but it is not clear to me a way to read data from three sensors in the same channel. I would be grateful if you could support me in this project. Thank you very much.

Hi, Felix. I'm glad you found this useful.
If you have 3 sensors communicating over UART (let's say using USB to UART adapters on a PC/Raspberry Pi), then you need 3 separate UART channels (3 USB to UART adapters). Then you will have three sensors defined like this:


sensor1 = serial.Serial(
    port='/dev/ttyUSB0',
    baudrate=9600,
    bytesize=8,
    parity='N',
    stopbits=1,
    xonxoff=0
)
sensor2 = serial.Serial(
    port='/dev/ttyUSB1',
    baudrate=9600,
    bytesize=8,
    parity='N',
    stopbits=1,
    xonxoff=0
)
sensor3 = serial.Serial(
    port='/dev/ttyUSB2',
    baudrate=9600,
    bytesize=8,
    parity='N',
    stopbits=1,
    xonxoff=0
)

The /dev/ttyUSBX definition for the assigned ports is just an example. This may vary on your system.

Then apply modbus initialization and commands on each sensorX object separately.
Cheers.

Wow, thanks connermacleod69!! That's great info to have at hand. Would you mind sharing what model(s) from the catalog you have used?
