Season 3 : Ep. 12 | 3:46



In this episode I use the ACS714 Current Sensor to attempt to measure battery use of my dogbot leg. But will it work?

  1. I found this after watching the video. It seems to be similar to the circuit you purchased but could be worth a shot.

  2. What you could be seeing is the fact that you are connected with wire clips and jumper pins. Try it again with a good soldered joint. Just banging the chip around you are shaking the temporary connections and that alone can cause erratic readings.
