The ACS714 Current Sensor Carrier (-30 to +30A) board  from Pololu is a simple carrier for Allegro’s ±30A ACS714 Hall effect-based linear current sensor. This version accepts a bidirectional current input with a magnitude up to 30 A. The output is an analog voltage (66 mV/A) centered at 2.5 V with a typical error of less than 1.5%.

Features:

  • Designed for bidirectional input current from -30 to 30 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.
  • Sensor IC can survive up to five times the overcurrent condition.
  • Automotive grade operating temperature range of -40°C – 150°C.

The input current can be connected to the board in a variety of ways. For low-current applications, you can solder male header pins to the board via the small through-holes on the input-current side of the board. For higher-current applications, you can solder wires directly to the through-holes whose sizes best match your wires, or you can use solderless ring terminal connectors, as shown in the picture to the right. The large through-holes are big enough for #6 screws.

The board has two mounting holes on the logic side of the board. These mounting holes are 0.5" apart and are designed for #2 screws.

Filtering the output

The IC has an internal filter resistance of 1.7 kΩ, and the carrier board includes a 1 nF filter capacitor, which produces a low-pass RC filter with a 90 kHz cutoff. You can improve sensing system accuracy for low-frequency sensing applictations by adding a capacitor in parallel with the integrated 1 nF capacitor across the pads marked “filter” on the bottom silkscreen (this capacitor is labeled C2b in the schematic below). The frequency F that the filter will attenuate to half its original power is given by:

F = 1 / (2πRC) = 1 / (11kΩ * (1 nF + Cf))

where Cf is the value of the capacitor added to the filter pads.
