30 A Current Sensor IC ACS711KEX

Allegro's ACS711 Hall-effect linear current sensor IC with overcurrent fault output for low voltage isolation applications

Image of Allegro MicroSystems' 30 A Current Sensor IC ACS711KEXAllegro's ACS711KEX 30 A current sensors provide low-side or <100 V sensing applications, the new device can sense up to 30 A continuous current. The IC measures only 3 mm x 3 mm, housed in a 0.75 mm low-profile QFN package. The internal conductor resistance is only 0.6 mΩ, much lower than the sense resistors used in most current sensing configurations. The Allegro sensor IC employs the Hall-effect to measure the current flowing into and out of the package. This makes it immune to variations in conductor resistance due to temperature. The fully-integrated sensor allows the amplifier gain and offset to produce a more accurate solution than in a sense resistor op-amp combination. The advances integrated into this micro-packaged ACS711 means that it can deliver the smallest current sensor footprint available for user applications. At the same time, the device reduces resistive power loss by an order of magnitude, without compromising sensing accuracy over temperature.
