Re: Photovoltaic/solar systems monitoring

I'm interested in how you interface the Pi with the Mate. Any info appreciated. The entire project is up on github, (link is in my previous post). The Pi is running a python script which is consuming the UDP data stream from the MATE3. It then formats that as json and sends it on to a web server an...
