INA282 Current Sensor

This is my last (!) post about current sensors. The INA282 determines currents by amplifying the voltage dropping across an external shunt. The output value is analog. I show you how to use the INA282 with the Arduino UNO or other microcontrollers.

MAX471 Current Sensor

This my the penultimate article on the subject of current sensors. This time it is about the MAX471, a shunt-based current sensor with internal amplifier. I present two modules and show how to use them on the Arduino.

Wemos D1 Mini Boards

A little breather from current sensors:
I present the Wemos D1 Mini Board with its technical features and show how you integrate it into the Arduino IDE. I will highlight the main differences from the Arduino UNO Board.

ACS712 Current Sensor

The ACS712 current sensor can be used to measure currents in the range of amperes. I show how to get down into the milliampere area and also measure the performance.
