As presented in the status update and live at the grid:camp there is a new version of the Fluksometer visible on the horizon. (New Horizon?)
Even though I will just become an early adopter, there are some interesting differences to the current version 2 FLM notable right now:
Besides a more powerful processor there are "severe" changes in how the FLM detects current and voltage, enabling it to detect "all four quadrants of AC power flow" - this written, there are new current clamps and a special power supply provided with the FLMv3 essential to its operation.
With these hardware changes, there will also be a lot of software changes which I expect only very limited to be provided for the FLMv2 (even though handling seems quite similar, for example by interfacing sensors via the built-in MQTT broker).
An interesting feature thus taken from the source code are new MQTT topics reflecting the new features; beside the "well-known" /sensor/+/counter and /sensor/+/gauge there are distinct "flx" topics:
I would be eager to get to know some experiences of early adopters/beta testers to share here. This might help understanding to upgrade... (I will also work on a successor of local visualization on receiving my unit)
