SUPPORT UND VERSAND LAUFEN WIE GEWOHNT WEITER!

Sidebar

LED controllers for fish tank lighting (fresh and sea water) and LEDs are in stock and available immediately. Nonetheless, please plan your demands in good time.

CoolTWILED 3.x is a wireless programmable 12channel LED controller/driver board. Configuration is possible via browser on almost any platform: Windows, Linux, Android, Apple IOS.

New: 20 Watt CVU LEDs combine cyan (490nm), violet (420nm) and UV (380nm & 400nm).

On request, CoolTWILED 3.x SLAVE is available with fan ports (so that two additional fans can be connected per board).


Please order via email

If you have questions, please read the pages below “Available for ordering”.

ElecPow

ElecPow is a free alternative firmware for various Wifi power meters and offers the following functions:

  • No need to use any cloud service.
  • Measurement and display of the current mains voltage, current and active power,
  • the maximum daily value of active power and in total, and
  • the accumulated daily energy and in total.
  • Only locally accessible web server: recording and graphic rendering of the data of the last 24 hours.
  • Calculation and indication of the apparent and reactive powers as well as the power factor.
  • Timer: Programmable switching of the relay depending on the time and/or calculated sun altitude above the horizon.
  • Automatic changeover to daylight savings/standard time.
  • Switching of sockets or signalling by LED depending on the power supplied by other sockets.
  • Free configuration of the pins for e.g. relay, key, Wifi and status LED. Presets for known hardware are also available.
  • A BME280 or BME680 can be connected to free pins of the microcontroller. Attention: Cable and sensor must NOT leave the plastic housing (mains voltage)!!!

No Internet connection is required for the basic functions. However, it is recommended so that the current time can be fetched via NTP at startup.

In addition, it is also possible to transfer the readings anonymously to a database on our server (location: Germany) and to have charts generated there. We will gladly activate this function for a small one-time fee, which covers our server costs. Examples:

Remote access from the Internet to the device is not possible at any time, i.e. no switching off or altering of any settings.

Download

Each archive contains the firmware as a complete image (1MB) and variants for flashing with e.g. Tuya Convert or Tasmota (512kB).

Once installed, later updates of the firmware can easily be done via the tab “Wifi / Firmware update”. Use the large image there.

Initial Installation

Via software

Using Tuya Convert

After installing Tuya Convert copy the firmware for the corresponding hardware, e.g. “SONOFF_POW_R2-512k-ElecPow10.bin”, into the folder “files”. Then use Tuya-Convert according to the instructions.

From within Tasmota

Enter “Setoption78 1” in the “Console”, press Enter and then use “Upgrade” to flash the firmware for the corresponding hardware, e.g. “SONOFF_POW_R2-512k-ElecPow10.bin”.

Via hardware

Never operate the power meter with its case open! Do not connect any programming cables while the device is connected to mains power!!!

For manual flashing with a programming adapter (e.g. “FTDI USB to TTL serial adapter”) the above download includes the flash tool esptool compiled for Windows and a batch file ElecPow.bat, which simplifies the process.

Below is an example of the procedure for two selected models.

Sonoff Pow R2

  • IMPORTANT: Disconnect the device from mains power!!
  • Open the case.
  • Connect the programming adapter to the device (3.3 Volt, RX, TX and GND), but not yet to the PC
  • Start the batch file ElecPow.bat

Create a backup:

  • Press and hold the button on the Sonoff Pow R2 during the next steps
  • Connect the programming adapter to the PC
  • Press “b” on the PC
  • Once the process is complete, release the button on the Sonoff Pow R2
  • Disconnect the programming adapter from the PC

Install ElecPow:

  • Press and hold the button on the Sonoff Pow R2 during the next steps
  • Connect the programming adapter to the PC
  • Press “1” on the PC
  • Once the process is complete, release the button on the Sonoff Pow R2
  • Disconnect the programming adapter from the PC
  • Close the case

If you are using Linux instead of Windows, execute the following commands after installing esptool. Before each step, press and hold the button on the device and then reconnect the programming adapter to the PC. This is necessary for the chip to start in programming mode:

Create a backup:

esptool read_flash 0 0x400000 backup.bin

Install ElecPow:

esptool write_flash 0 SONOFF_POW_R2-ElecPow10.bin

Finally, we would like to emphasize that the device must not be connected to mains power with the case open and/or with programming cables connected!!!

Gosund SP1 v2.3+

  • IMPORTANT: Disconnect the device from mains power!!!
  • Open the case and carefully remove the board from the mounting brackets.
  • Carefully solder a bridge between IO0 and GND
  • Solder the programming adapter to the board (3.3 Volt, RX, TX and GND), but do not yet connect it to the PC
  • Start the batch file ElecPow.bat

Create a backup:

  • Connect the programming adapter to the PC
  • Press “b” on the PC
  • After the process is completed, disconnect the programming adapter from the PC

Install ElecPow:

  • Connect the programming adapter to the PC
  • Press “4” on the PC
  • After the process is completed, disconnect the programming adapter from the PC
  • Carefully remove all the soldered connections
  • Re-attach the board
  • Close the case

If you are using Linux instead of Windows, execute the following commands after installing esptool. The programming adapter must be reconnected to the PC before each step. This is necessary so that the chip starts in programming mode:

Create a backup:

esptool read_flash 0 0x100000 backup.bin

Install ElecPow:

esptool write_flash 0 GOSUND_SP1_V23-ElecPow10.bin

Finally, we would like to emphasize that the device must not be connected to mains power with the case open and/or with programming cables connected!!!

Software manual

Wifi setup

As long as Wifi is not yet set up, ElecPow will, via WPS, search for an access point during the first few seconds after power on (press the WPS button on your router prior to connecting the device to mains power).

If WPS does not work, ElecPow itself opens an access point named ElecPow and the password Coolhardware.de The blue LED will then light up permanently. After connecting to this Wifi, access is possible via the address http://192.168.4.1. On the tab “Wifi” an existing network can then be selected and its password entered manually.

The blue LED will turn off once Wifi has been set up correctly. The device then can be accessed there (locally) by browsing to http://elecpow.local.

Reset to default settings

To force a reset to default settings, press and hold the button on the powered up device for about 5 seconds. Subsequently, all settings including the Wifi data are erased. You can set up the device again the same way as described above.
