Monitoring current and voltage with the TI INA210

This week we received a INA210 from Texas Instruments. Officially it’s a “Voltage Output, High/Low-Side Measurement, Bi-Directional Zero-Drift Series Current Shunt Monitor”. It allows us to monitor the amps flowing through the shunt, and to display the “right now” amp consumption (or production), volts, watts, and watt hours (with some simple arduino programming). Combine this …
