For many years now I've been using a CurrentCost system to monitor three PV meters using their mini-transmitter and then upload to PVOutput.

The system survived the demise of CurrentCost by connecting the display to a Pi and using that to upload to PVOutput but one of the mini-transmitters now seems to have died - it won't talk to the base unit and refuses to go into any of the set-up modes.  A replacement unit doesn't appear to be available.

So I'm looking for something that has a minimum of three optical sensor capable inputs which can talk to PVOutput directly or if necessary, via a Pi which presumably I'll have to code something for.  I don't need a display etc.

I'd prefer to just buy something that works to save on time and effort but I do code for a living so if that's necessary I'll have to do that.

Any recommendations?
