PZEM-004T power monitor module

https://www.banggood.com/PZEM-004T-TTL- ... rehouse=CN

Needs to be powered with 5V over the TTL UART port connector.

Note that the PZEM-004T-10A and the PZEM-004T-100A has different wiring configurations for the power and sensor inputs.

The current transformer does not appear to be polarity sensitive although I'm not sure if this impacts the phase measurements.

The SCT013-000 split core current transformer handles 0-100A with a maximum output of 50mA whereas the PZCT-02 has a maximum output of 100mA. Basically, for the SCT013-000 - 100A=50mA while for the PZCT-02 - 100A=100mA. This means we will probably need to recalibrate, or use a more suitable CT.

The CT inputs of the PZEM-004T-100A measure 0.5ohms or less, which seems rather low. Assuming a 100mA input, the product voltage is 0.1A * 0.5ohms = 0.05V at full-scale. This does not seem to be correct.

The main IC in the PZEM-004T is a "V9881D" energy measurement IC by Vango Tech.

The CT inputs go to the IBN (pin 4) and IBP (pin 5) which is actually shorted together, and possibly referencing Vss as the other leg. These are the Input-B positive and negative channels - so why are they shorted together?

This project is close to what we want.

It seems that the V3.0 board that I have uses the modbus protocol and not just the usual serial protocol.
