The emonTx Shield is an open source hardware arduino shield footprint compatible electricity and temperature monitoring shield that can be connected to any standard Arduino UNO, Leonardo, NanodeRF (for web connectivity and posting to emoncms.org) or even the new Arduino Yun.
The emonTx Shield was designed in North Wales by Trystan Lea and Glyn Hudson and is manufactured in the UK.

Assembly of Non-SMT components
The board comes with all the SMT components the resistors, capacitors and LED already on the board. The non-smt components (the arduino headers, ftdi connector, CT and ACAC jack sockets) do not come pre-assembled and so a little soldering is still needed to complete the build of this board.
When assembling: The 3.5mm CT sockets and 2.1mm AC-AC Adapter socket needs to be soldered on the bottom of the PCB. This slightly unconventional design was chosen to make a low profile design possible.
See Technical Wiki page for info on RFM12B jumper settings, wiki page refers to the old 'thru-hole' design but the RFM12B operation and pin-out's have not changed.
EmonTx Arduino shield is not compatible with other Arduino shields that use I2C
