Detailed Review:

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.
