ACS712 - Current Sensor "Version: 1.0

This component allows the user to easily integrate a hall effect current sensor device to there project.
With this component the user doesn't have to make difficult calculation anymore.

This component included one macro this macro returns a string value this string value will look like this:

When the device outputs a voltage related to a positive current flow the output string value will look like this: +1.125A
The same for a negative current flow but then with the corresponding minus sign.

Because this component uses only one macro and one return value its very easy to use, the only thing the user needs to do is setting up the ADC parameters.

Component Use:

The component can be used by copying the ".fcpx" file into the component directory of Flowcode v6.
Then component can be found under the tap inputs as ACS712.

Future Updates:

Future updates will include other type of current sensing device from the same range such as:

* ACS715
* ACS759
* ACS761

If you have any suggestion for this component please let me know.
