I’m trying to hook up a CSLA2CD Current Sensor to my Cobra to measure the amount of AC current through a wire, and I’m having trouble finding information on how to hook it up. Some questions:
- Do I need to use a voltage divider when wiring this? If so, what size resistor would work best?
- Since I’m trying to sense AC current, will I need to either convert this to DC (via a rectifier) or do an RMS calculation? (My hunch is, yes, I will.)
- Does anyone have a better idea to accomplish the same thing?
I’m asking a lot, I know, but after a couple days of digging and researching, I’m feeling overwhelmed. As a software guy, the hardware side seems daunting at times.
