The Wireless Current sensor is designed to measure AD or DC currents up to 5 Amps at a maximum of 32V. It is designed to sense positive or negative AC current levels or high / low DC current levels and use the set points to trigger an XBee wireless module to send a notification. It can also use the XBee's timed reporitng mode to return remote current readings.
The board can be used with the following types of XBee & XBeePro radios in Series 1 & 2 footprints:
For best results we recommend that you use XBee radios with the RP-SMA antenna connector or the mini whip antenna. These will experience the least interference from the copper areas on the PCB. The XBee radios with chip and PCB antennas will still work but their range may be reduced.
