The EVCS180X-S-Y-00A is an evaluation board designed to demonstrate the capabilities of the MCS180x family, which are linear Hall-effect current sensors for AC and DC current sensing. The Hall array is differential, which cancels out stray magnetic fields. The MCS180x series provides two power supply options (3.3V or 5V), and six full current ranges between 5A and 50A for the best accuracy across different applications.
The output voltage (VOUT) is proportional to the primary applied current flowing through the primary conductor. The galvanic isolation between the primary conductive path pins and the sensor leads allow the MCS180x to replace optoisolators or other expensive isolation devices. The MCS180x is available in an SOIC-8 package.
