How do I measure currents larger than 0.6 amperes?

Special caution should be taken when operating at greater than ±20 volts in a situation where significant current can be supplied.

Many solar panel projects require measurement of more than 0.6 amperes of current so these concepts is often useful for these projects.

For larger currents, see: High Current Sensor, order code HCS-BTA, $79 and Go Direct® Current Probe, order code GDX-CUR, $74

Note: Our Current Probe, order code DCP-BTA, $39, has a range of -0.6 to +0.6 amperes and is best suited for experiments with small batteries and bulbs.
