API for the TA12-200 Current Transformer. More...

Detailed Description

UPM module for the TA12-200 current transformer found, for instance, in the Grove Electricity Sensor. This module can measure AC moving through a wire at up to 5 A.

// Instantiate a TA12-200 sensor on analog pin A0
upm::TA12200 electricity(0);
while (shouldRun) {
unsigned int maxVal = electricity.highestValue();
float current = electricity.milliAmps(maxVal);
cout << "Max ADC Value: " << maxVal << ", current: " << current << "mA" << endl;
