Non-invasive AC Current Sensor SCT-013-000.

Non-invasive AC Current Sensors are a good way to measure real consumption without altering the electrical composition of the elements to be analyzed. They work by magnetic induction, so that the field generated in the cable, used to power the device, induces a current in the transformer integrated in the sensor. In this way we can know what the current is in the power cable and therefore the actual consumption of the device to be measured.

If you’ve ever been looking for Arduino libraries sure you finished in GitHub. This web repository has thousands of libraries that can be very useful for our projects with Arduino. Let’s see a couple of ways to install a library that is hosted on GitHub. For this example I chose the aJson library.
In the first place we will see how a manual installation would be done, for which we need to download the library in a ZIP clicking the Download ZIP button inside the project page.

The easiest and popular way to introducing us to the world of microcontrollers is using Arduino. The great advantage over other development platforms is its simplicity and above all the support you have from your community. The fact that it is an open-source project opens up endless possibilities for customization, as you have access to all design, from electronics to software.

 But Arduino is not only a hardware also need a simple and friendly environment programming for everyone, including those who have never programmed. That environment is Arduino IDE.

Pro Trinket V3

Following the appearance of Arduino increased the number of open-source hardware devices to develop affordable to the general public. An example is Pro Trinket and Trinket,  that like Arduino has a ATmega328 microcontroller and a bootloader that allows you to load your programs directly to the board via USB. But the outstanding features are its ability to connect directly to a battery from 5v to 15v (in the case of the V3 trinket from 3.5v to 16v) and especially its small size. All this makes it ideal for small projects that run with a battery. We can also load programs through the Arduino IDE and 95% of Arduino programs designed to run on Trinket directly, the rest have to change the settings for some pins or not enough space for storage in other cases.
