The ACS714-5 is a very popular Hall Effect current sensor from Allegro MicroSystems with 5-Amps current monitoring capability and high-speed 5 μS response time.
Married to the ADC121C021 (Texas Instruments), one of our favorite analog-to-digital Converters, this mini module can be used for monitoring DC current at up to 188.9k Samples per Second with 12-bit resolution.
At this time, our GitHub repository supports DC current monitoring applications only. If you have a lot of processing power available, AC may be possible but, for this one, we recommend sticking to DC.
Packaged in a convenient I2C Mini Module, this is a true plug-and-play current monitoring solution, scaleable to 9 devices per I2C port using 2 address jumpers.
This is a general purpose I²C device compatible with all computing platforms and IoT technologies, including Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone, Arduino, Particle, BridgeX5, and many more. All ControlEverything.com devices support a strict +5V I²C Bus standard.

Our mini modules provide a standardized footprint to simplify the design of your project, and allow for a smaller form factor without sacrificing the plug-and-play ease of use that our product line affords.
All I²C Mini Modules are designed to operate at 5VDC. Using a convenient quick connect 4-Pin plug, devices can be daisy-chained onto the I²C Bus, eliminating the need for soldering. Simply plug together the devices you need for your next automation application.
Pull-up resistors are included with all ControlEverything.com master devices. If you are wiring in your own I²C port, on-board 4.7K jumper-selectable pull-up resistors are available for convenience purposes.
All mini modules are 50.8 x 31.75 mm.
