RoadTest: RoadTest the TI INA301EVM
Evaluation Type: Independent Products
Did you receive all parts the manufacturer stated would be included in the package?: True
What other parts do you consider comparable to this product?:
What were the biggest problems encountered?: No reverse polarity protection.
Actually this review had to be done much earlier but as I had to look for shunt resistor (Not readily available here) which delayed the testing. I still have to use the module for real application where I will use the module with a 4-20mA current output sensor and the alert ouput can be used to notify extreme conditions which I will complete soon.
I just worked around a simple circuit to measure the current consumption of a low power load and then compared the readings from the output with the measured one. I tested with all the 3 Gains chips and teh results were as expected.
The only issue I faced was I blown one of the chip (INA301A1) as the chip doesnot have reverse polarity protection. I accidentally smoke that one.
Setting up the module is real easy.
This is a brief test of the module and will come back with updates.
