A simple to use Hall Effect Current Sensor. It uses theACS712 IC. It can be used to measure precise AC and DC currents. The sensors requires 5V for operation and outputs an analog voltage which varies linearly with the sensed current. It can measure a maximum of 5A of current.
To use the sensor, provide 5V at the pin marked Vcc, and Ground to pin Gnd. Use the screw terminal connectors to connect the signal to be sensed. The analog output will be provided in the Vout pin.
- Uses the ACS712 IC
- Easy to read analog output corresponding to the sensed current
- Requires 5.0 VDC for operation
- 185 mV/A output sensitivity
