  • I have a line that sometimes carries 230V AC and other times ~400DC when it is rectified. I could not identify from the datasheet if AC and DC have different properties for this sensor, if voltage is much of an issue or if it is ONLY the current it senses…

    I will probably swap out the op-amp for a peak detector amplifier, I just need a Current/No Current detector that does not need re-calibrating with every current change . Can anyone advise me!!

  • I might be silly, but i THINK i read somewhere just before i came here that they cancel out each-others magnetic fields if the primary is wrapped. Dont quote me on that though.
