Pierre Muth’s PiLogger project is an ongoing, evolving build – as many maker projects are. And it recently got a breakout upgrade in the form of an additional display combining ESP8266 wireless with a Sharp LCD memory monochrome display. The display is currently designed to refresh every 2 minutes and he encased it all in a nice metal frame too (see image below).
For a while now the Pilogger needs a small remote display. The logging station is neither particularly compact nor elegant, therefore I made some tests about a battery powered status display. I tried solutions which I never used mainly by curiosity but also in order to continue to learn something. Especially the Wifi chip ESP8266 and a Sharp memory LCD.
