This is V2 of my pet project that previously ran using Arduino Uno.
The objectives are pretty straightforward:
Control power on/off wirelessly
User access control via RFID reader for safety reasons. Eg. Powering up a CNC machine
Time-based scheduling to reduce power wastage for machines idling
Power monitoring + logging
Version 2 — Spark powered!
Version 1 — Arduino Uno
It sure looks a little bulky but with self-designed PCB and removing the use of headers, this can probably fit well inside a standard power outlet used in Singapore!
If anyone interested in an open-source power outlet in general?
Do throw in some cool ideas you think might be awesome for this project!
