Ameter Unit

SKU:U086

Description

Ameter Unit is a current meter that can monitor the current in real time. The 16-bit ADS1115 ADC (analog-to-digital) converter can be used to communicate through I2C protocol (By default the I2C address is 0X48 unless manually modified).

In order to ensure the measurement accuracy, there is a built-in DC-DC isolated power supply.

The I2C interface is also electrically isolated through the low-power isolator module CA-IS3020S, This prevents noise and surges on the data bus or other circuits from entering the local ground terminal to interfere or damage sensitive circuits.

Each Unit is factory calibrated with initial accuracy of 0.1%FS, ±1 count and resolution of 0.3mA.

The unit has a maximum measurement current of ±4A, and an internal integrated 4A fuse to prevent excessive measurement current from burning out the circuit.

? EEPROM (0x51) has built-in calibration parameters when leaving the factory. Please do not write to the EEPROM, otherwise the calibration data will be overwritten and the measurement results will be inaccurate.

Measurement Range Gain Setting

There are different range of resolutions, the % of error values for each result might be different as well. please set the appropriate range according to the application needs in order to maximize the accuracy. Do not write the values into the EEPROM, If you'd like to save the custom calibration values to EEPROM,Using the following example, the factory data will be lost (overwritten)

Absolute maxium 6A Do not exceed it, otherwise the equipment will be burnt down.
