ACS 714 Current Sensor Carrier -5A to +5A is a simple carrier of Allegro’s ±5A ACS714 Hall effect-based linear current sensor, which offers a low-resistance (~1.2 mΩ) current path and electrical isolation up to 2.1 kV RMS. This version accepts a bidirectional current input with a magnitude up to 5 A and outputs a proportional analog voltage (185 mV/A) centered at 2.5 V with a typical error of ±1.5%. It operates from 4.5 V to 5.5 V and is intended for use in 5 V systems.
The sensor operates at 5 V and has an output sensitivity of 185 mV/A.The following list details some of the sensor’s key features:
Designed for bidirectional input current from -5 A to 5 A (though the robust sensor IC can survive up to five times the overcurrent condition).
Conductive path internal resistance is typically 1.2 mΩ, and the PCB is made with 2-oz copper, so very little power is lost in the board.
Use of a Hall effect sensor means the IC is able to electrically isolate the current path from the sensor’s electronics (up to 2.1 kV RMS), which allows the sensor to be inserted anywhere along the current path and to be used in applications that require electrical isolation.
80 kHz bandwith that can optionally be decreased by adding a capacitor across the board pins marked “filter”.
High accuracy and reliability: typical total output error of ±1.5% at room temperature with factory calibration, an extremely stable output offset voltage, and almost zero magnetic hysteresis.
Automotive-grade operating temperature range of -40°C to 150°C.
