Can you recommend a current sensor to use with my Dual MAX14870 Motor Driver for Raspberry Pi (item #3758)? I’m guessing I’ll need a pair of them, one for each of the two voltage sources.
How about either:
- the #4030 ACHS-7121 Current Sensor Carrier (-10A to +10A), $4.95 each, or
- the #4041 ACS-724 Current Sensor Carrier (-5A to +5A), $14.95 each?
Could you also please recommend a good way of mounting these little guys? Perhaps hanging ‘em off the motor driver board, near the RasPi’s 40-pin header, would be good.
Hanging them off the 40-pin header with short 3-pin female headers would be ideal, assuming I can figure out which pin numbers to connect to and if I get lucky with the pin alignment availability. Can you provide recommendations for which pins to use for OUT, VCC, and GND connections? …or perhaps bring in the OUT signals via a spare input on one of the I/O I2C cards. (I would have been lost without your help on the motor driver board.)
