The MCP39F511 Smart Plug is a fully functional power meter capable of transmitting its data over a Bluetooth® interface to an Android phone or tablet. It is designed to stand between the wall outlet and any electronic device that the user wants to control and monitor remotely. The system calculates the real-time values of the RMS current, RMS voltage, frequency, active, reactive and apparent power, power factor and also the energy consumption.
The MCP39F511 Smart Plug allows remote power control to save energy when the user turns an unused device off, instead of keeping it in stand-by (still consuming power). It also offers an easy way of monitoring the electrical behavior of home devices and appliances, allowing early detection of malfunctions if an over power or over current event is observed.
The free Android application for the MCP39F511 Smart Plug can be found on the Google Play Store under "Microchip Smart Plug".
