    Hello
    I recently bought a linear Hall effect sensor for measuring current, but I don't know how to make the circuit to measure the current, could anybody help me with this? Please tell me the circuit.
    Thank you very much!

    Thank you. And after I measured the output voltage of the hall effect sensor, how can I know the current in primary wire?

    The device should have a data sheet that states the sensitivity of the sensor. Even so, you will probably need an ammeter to help calibrate the Hall effect sensor output.

    You need to either use a micro to do the scaling or have some manual scaling factor (for example 10mV=1A)

    I've got a project that uses a hall sensor.. calibration is a pain. Mine measures up to 600 Amps DC. Sensor spaced approx. 3/16" off a copper bus bar.

    How can I know the scaling factor?

    Does anybody know the block diagram of Honeywell CSLA2EL Hall effect sensor ?
    And how to use this sensor to make a circuit for measuring current?
    And how can i know the relation between the output voltage and primary current?
    Thank you!

    Greetings chudiandeyu,

    I have merged both of your posts since they appeared to be identical.

    Hello,

    All information on sensitivity and size are in the attached datasheet.

    Thanks.
    I saw this datasheet, but it does not say what is the connection of primary current and secondary output voltage.

    Hello,

    The datasheet tells you it uses the 99SS12 sensor.
    Here is tha datasheet of that sensor.
