SparkFun Power Meter - Qwiic

Need a power sensor that can sense voltage up to 60VDC and current up to 30A? This is the product for you!

The Allegro MicroSystems ACS37800 power monitoring IC greatly simplifies the addition of power monitoring to many powered systems and is ideal for heavy current applications like:

  • Monitoring the power drawn by a 3D-printer
  • Monitoring the power drawn from a UAV battery
  • Battery charging / conditioning
  • Solar / photovoltaic panel power monitoring

Allegro’s Hall-effect-based, galvanically isolated current sensing technology achieves reinforced isolation ratings in a small PCB footprint. These features enable isolated current sensing without expensive Rogowski coils, oversized current transformers, isolated operational amplifiers, or the power loss of shunt resistors.

The ACS37800 power monitoring IC offers key power measurement parameters that can easily be accessed through its digital interface. Dedicated and configurable I/O pins for voltage/current zero crossing, undervoltage and overvoltage reporting, and fast overcurrent fault detection are available. User configuration of the IC is available through on-chip EEPROM.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

  • This product is not suitable for low current applications due to the +/-0.1A RMS Noise on the ACS37800’s current channel.
  • Although the ACS37800 power monitoring IC is capable of monitoring AC power at high line voltages, the SparkFun Power Meter is designed for Safety Extra Low Voltage (SELV) applications of up to 60VDC only. Its use in AC power systems is not recommended or condoned.
