Conductivity Monitoring Recommendations
#1
I wanted to know if anyone has added Conductivity Monitoring to this project.  If so what probe and hardware was used to do this.  I have seen many options of connecting Raspberry Pi to hardware, but wanted to know if it is possible to add this as an input on the existing box and have it report values.  Any help would be great

Hi, currently it hasn't been added but some point I would like to integrate it through the back door so to speak. reef-pi has a file driver that will read a single value from a text file, with that it's possible to have a script running in background on Pi that's reading an EC circuit and writing it to file. In reef-pi you would bring this in through the pH tab so you would have the same features minus the calibration, that would need to be done with a separate script and saved to circuit.

are we talking about the salinity probe ? ORP probe?
in any case, is the addition of a salinity probe would be in the same way as above ?

So i currently have this working wonderfully.  I have Salinity,  ORP, PH,  room temp/humidity and a few other items I run a script on another pi that gather this data and puts it into a file which I read every few mins in REEF-Pi and chart for current and history the results

There's really no limit what you can import into reef-pi, it's a pretty flexible program.

Nice

I'd like to see more probes integrated into reef-pi

Soon I'm going to have some scripts available so it's easy to add EC, ORP, DO, flow meters, etc.
