Current Sensor Module GY-471 (max 3Amp)

  • RM14.00

  • Product Code: GY-471
  • Availability: In Stock


The MAX471 module (HCSENS0041) is a complete, bidirectional, highside current-sense amplifier for portable PCs, telephones, and other systems where battery/DC power-line monitoring is critical. High-side power-line monitoring is especially useful in battery-powered systems, since it does not interfere with the ground paths of the battery chargers or monitors often found in “smart” batteries. The MAX471 has an internal 35mΩ current-sense resistor and measures battery currents up to ±3A. The module has a built-in 2K Ohm sens resitor giving the module a full sensor range of +/- 3A. An open-collector SIGN output indicates current-flow direction, so the user can monitor whether a battery is being charged or discharged. Operation is from 3V to 36V, and draws less than 100µA over temperature



  • Test Voltage range: DC3 – 25V (Arduino work on 5V) or DC3 16.5V (work on 3.3V);
  • Test Current range: DC 0 – 3A
  • Current sens max: +/- 3A
  • Current sens voltage: 3 to 36V
  • Sensor output: 1V / Amp
  • Dimensions: 20mm x 19.5mm



RS+ ......… Load positive supply (3 to 36V)
