PZEM-004T V3.0 or Version 3.0 is the upgraded version to replace the old PZEM004T V1.0. The old version has been sold out in most of the online store and no produce anymore. The updated versionof PZEM004T is best for the purpose of the DIY project, where we need to measure the voltage, current, power, energy, frequency, Power factor (frequency and PF is extra added in the new version)using Arduino/ESP8266/Raspberry Pi like opensource platform. In many electrical projects, engineer directly deals with measurements with few basic requirements like

  • High galvanic isolation
  • Parameter display
  • Direct communication with computer
  • Data acquisition and storage with subsequent viewing or copying to the computer.

The physical dimensions of the PZEM-004T v3 board is 3.01×7.3 cm, The pzem-004t  V3 module is bundled with 33mm diameter 100A current transformer coil.

The new version has higher precision, faster refresh speed, and more stability communication than the old version.

PZEM-004T Arduino Wiring Diagram

PZEM-004T-Arduino

PZEM-004T V3 module has passive serial communication to connect Arduino Uno. Its RX and TX pin needs external power supply. connect the 5V pin to arduino 5V pin, Rx pin to D11 of arduino and Tx pin to D12 pin of arduino, gnd to gnd.  In the below diagram PZEM004T V3 is connected to Arduino using Software serial. Use the following Program to test the module. Before compile download and install the PZEM-004T library

PZEM004T Arduino Code

This pzem004t Arduino code enable you to mesure AC voltage, AC current, Power, Energy, Frequency and Power Factor on serial interface with arduino microcontroller. The library of PZEM-004t V30 works on hardware serial as well as software serial. The result of all parameters are printed on serial monitor of Arduino IDE.  I tested this library code with arduino uno, arduino mega,and nano board.
