  • Interesting item. If I understand current transformers correctly, a ‘load’ resistor is placed across the secondary, effectively converting the current to a voltage. If I’m using a 5V A-to-D converter to read the voltage, a 100 ohm load resistor will provide full scale measurements (25 amps in, 500 ma out) ? This assumes I’m sampling fast enough to find the peaks in the AC waveform. Am I missing something?
