Part 5 of our Power Management Unit Build will cover the final physical construction and some information on the sketch we did for the Arduino.

I show you how I wired up the front panel LEDs, Buttons and the project board.  I used the following sources from the internet to determine how to wire up the controls and write the sketch:

  1.  // Turn the LED on and off.
  2.  // Monitor the momentary push buttons.
  3. // Display information on the LCD.
  4. // Calculate the voltage and convert it to use on the Arduino.
  5.  // Monitor current with a YHDC SCT-013-000 sensor.
  6. // 5v 7805 1A Regulated Circuit.
  7. // Webserver Tutorial.

I would like to thank those authors for sharing the information.  I took bits and pieces from them to build the project.

In my next post about the project, I will share the Arduino sketch and provide a wiring diagram.

I am going to leave this project as is for now, but at a later date I want to add the ability to use DHCP for the webserver and then be able to set a static IP address.  I also need to add a security/login method to the project.
