Current Sensor Testing and calibration

Posted on Feb 6, 2014

Connect the Negative side of the positive supply to the Positive side of the negative supply to create a +/-15vdc. This junction is the ground for the transducer to ensure a balanced voltage. 9) Continue the experiment by switching the power off, changing the load, and energizing the circuit to read different currents and different transducer o

utputs. The data recorded from the experiment shows that Output(Volts)=0. 8*Input(Amps). Since we know from the data sheet that 4 volts = 5 Amps, or 0. 8 v = 1 A, the data confirms the data sheet value. All data points recorded between 0 and 2. 0 Amps was measured using a digital ammeter. Due to the limitations of the digital ammeter, readings above 2. 0 Amps was measured using an analog ammeter on a 5 Amp scale.
