About the project
This project combines our CamScripter RPi with a flowmeter and a custom-made I/O module to visualize the flow measurement of liquids. The integration is aimed at wine shops and pubs and we tested it successfully with both wine and beer.
We tasked Papouch, a company specializing in developing custom electronic systems, to build a custom version of their Quido I/O module (similar to this) for us so that we could connect up to 10 flowmeters to the module. The module is connected to a Raspberry Pi featuring CamScripter RPi and an in-house developed I/O module package.
Flow measurements are forwarded to an AXIS camera and visualized on-screen as a graphic overlay with the help of the CamOverlay App.
What do you need?
Learn more about CamScripter RPi in this product sheet where we explain how to set up a Raspberry Pi to work with our app and how to prepare CamScripter RPi to work with micro apps of your choice.
Open your internet browser and type in the IP address of your Raspberry Pi to open CamScripter App UI. The IP address must be in the following format: http://localhost:52520/settings.html
Upload the Flow Meter package.
Click “Start” to launch the micro application.
To customize your flowmeter settings and calibrate the device, open CamScripter App UI in your browser and access the Flow Meter control via the gear button next to the installed Flow Meter package.
To launch the data loop, press "Start".
This integration is easy to set up and manage. While we developed it mainly for use in wine shops or pubs, it was tested at a much smaller scale: check the photos accompanying this article to see the flowmeter utilized at our own office party.
