An emonBase is a web-connected base-station that receives energy monitoring data from the emonTx and posts to a remote or local server for web-based logging and visualisation. This server could be an installation of emoncms or a service like Pachube.
Nanode RF - As of December 2011 we will be using the NanodeRF board as an emonBase. The NanodeRF was designed by Ken Boak with design input from OpenEnergyMonitor developers. The Nanode RF has been designed to work perfectly as an emonBase.
The NanodeRF is an Arduino clone board running at 3.3V with the addition of an ENC8J60 etherent controller chip and a RFM12B wireless transceiver module.
