Need to measure current and voltage through a USB cord programmatically? Gather lots of data dynamically? Then you need a USB CVSensor.
The USB CVSensor is an USB to USB current and voltage measuring device. It uses an INA219 to accurately (and dynamically) measured currents and voltages through a USB plug.
- Startup Currents and Voltages
- Track Dynamic power consumption in systems
- Gather data using Arduino or Raspberry Pi base systems.
- Use in Solar Power Systems
