Multiple PFC per RaspberryPi


#1

Hi!

Have any of you used RaspPi to control more than 1 PFC? I’ll be installing 2 of them together running different clima recipes.

thanks :slight_smile:

The problem is keeping the data separate and controls. You end up having to run two nearly identical systems with different PFC identifiers (or have complex code that passes the identifier around a lot). The pin limit also becomes an issue when you start adding and testing additional sensors and actuators.
We found it easier to have a separate Pi for each box. We use Pi III but you could get by with a Zero if need be. For the MVP, it is possible to replicate the data to a central database. I also use VNC to view multiple Pis from a single device.

Ok, makes sense!! Thanks :slight_smile:
