Hall current click is a high precision current sensor with a galvanically isolated sensor that keeps your target MCU and the surrounding circuitry safe.
Hall current click comprises a TLI4970-D050T4 miniature magnetic digital current sensor that utilizes the Hall effect for contact-free current measurement, and two EXtreme ZPower connectors to connect a conducting wire.
To use Hall current click, split your conducting wire and connect the ends to the two the EXTreme ZPower connectors (IP- and IP+).
The current rail is galvanically isolated from the TLI4970-D050T4 sensor. The sensor detects the strength of the current, then sends the measurement data to the target MCU through mikroBUS™ SPI (SDO, SCK and CS) lines.
Utilizing the Hall effect enables contact-free measurement which means that there is no additional power loss. Because of this, Hall current click is best suited for systems with high efficiency.
DANGER: Use caution when working with current and the Hall current click™ – DO NOT TOUCH THE BOARD WHILE THE EXTERNAL POWER SUPPLY IS ON! With this in mind proceed to the page containing specs, details and Libstock examples.
