New upgrade module for Premium II and older Gateways available

The ESP8266 module in older Gateways like the Premium II can be upgraded to another module in the same format.

The MH-ET Live ESP32 module was a good choice to upgrade the ESP8266 to an ESP32 chip.

Now available in the webshop a soldered and LilyGo T7-S3 board with an ESP32-S3 chip and 16MB Flash and 8MB PSRAM. It’s programmed with EMS-ESP for your convenience.
This new upgrade module is so powerful you probably never need any other upgrade again.

For the ESP32-S3 a different bin file is available on the EMS-ESP repository for EMS-ESP 3.6 and later.

For upgrade instructions see the wiki.

New revision of the interface board available

The EMS interface board V3 has allowed many people to connect their boiler to a microcontroller.
All connectors on the V3 are on the left side. However, some people want to make a 3D printed enclosure for this board and then it is more convenient to have the UART connector on the other side.

I now made a new revision of this board (V3.1) which has the UART connector on the right side.
It still has the holes on the left side as well, but the connector is only soldered on the right side.

If you need the connector on the left side you can solder one yourself.
