Hi,

How would be this conversion formule with 3,3 Vcc and 12 bits ADC:
amplitude_current=(float)sensor_max/1024*5/800*2000000;
effective_value=amplitude_current/1.414;//minimum_current=1/1024*5/800*2000000/1.414=8.6(mA)

Hi Terry,
I'm using a different platform of Arduino with other microcontroller ( TI cc2530) and I want to use this sensor with my platform. My platform uses a cc2530 SoC and it has a 12 bits ADC and uses 3,3 V as VCC. For that, I need to adapt the

I'm using this sensor to detect current. But something is wrong. If my device goes on, it takes 150mA, if not then 0mA. I can measure it using AV-Meter. If I use this sensor with the demo code, it shows me only the changes (0mA then 150mA then back to

Hi, view the WIKI. There are demo code for the sensor, upload to Arduino or seeeduino board and plug to the right pins then you can use Arduino IDE monitor the value.
