Product information "OpenDTU NRF - Your evaluation for your balcony solar system compatible with Hoymiles HM series (NRF module)"
The energy turnaround is in full swing and great balcony power plants are sprouting up on every balcony. It's beautiful!

With this OpenDTU Board kit you can read out your balcony solar power plant, display the data and even control it. The prerequisite is an inverter from Hoymiles. A small display always shows the current power production.

The project was started by Thomas and Jan and can of course be found under open source licence here:https://github.com/tbnobody/OpenDTU (there you will also find a list of compatible inverters).

This breakout board is 100% compatible and was created together with the developers of the software. On the board there is a special radio module that speaks the radio standard of the inverters. This is read out by an ESP32 module, processed and can be further processed via WLAN, e.g. with MQTT.

The board also has connections for a display and an RGB LED strip, which may be supported in a future version.

Scope of Delivery

In the scope of delivery, you will receive all the necessary components: a display, an ESP32, and an antenna module. You just need to solder them together and enter your Hoymiles serial number, and you're ready to go! The ESP32 is already pre-flashed.

The Housing

The kit comes with a high-quality 3D printed housing. You can also print it yourself. We have published the files here:https://www.printables.com/de/model/441037-opendtu-breakoutboard-case

Target Group

This kit is designed for all those who have a solar power plant at home and a suitable Hoymiles inverter. Without the inverter and the solar panels the kit is just a nice paperweight with display ;). The electronics kit for soldering is designed for beginners. Relatively large components are used, which make it easy to learn how to solder. This is also possible for absolute beginners in a reasonable time.

Required tools

What the minimum soldering workstation looks like is described here: Der Lötarbeitsplatz
You will also need a micro USB cable and a suitable USB power supply. Two toothpicks are very practical. An electric side cutter is also very useful for this kit :)
 

Instructions and help

To make it easy for you to solder the kit, we have put together detailed instructions with lots of pictures and individual steps for each of our kits. There you will be guided step by step through the assembly and there are many tips and tricks on how to solder correctly. For the majority of our soldering kits there are also interactive circuits with the names of the components and the tracks. All instructions are available in German and English.

The instructions also describe the software part as far as the software is installed, connected to your WLAN and you have set up your inverter. Everything else is self-explanatory in the web interface.

For environmental reasons, we do not print our instructions. It is even better to view them on screen, as you can then zoom into the high-resolution photos to see the details. On each kit you will find a QR code or link to the instructions.

You can find all the instructions as PDF files at the following link: https://binary-kitchen.github.io/SolderingTutorial
Just click on "DE" or "EN" for the right kit and you can download a PDF.

Lovingly packed for you by hand

All soldering kits are lovingly packed for you by hand in Germany. Unfortunately, it happens from time to time that a component is packed too much or too little. If something is too much: No problem! Keep the components and use them for your creations! If something is missing: No problem! Just send us an email and we will send you the missing parts.
