Non-Invasive Current Sensor - 30A


Has anyone tried hooking one of these up to the Esquilo?

I've seen several Arduino examples and doesn't seem to hard but I'm afraid to kill my Esquilo board lol.

I may try using an Arduino first.

Just wanted to check to see if anyone has done this and has any tips.

I'm wanting to use this right now just to know if a motor is powered on and keep track of the time for equipment maintenance. You know, change the oil in a compressor every xx hours of operation.

Though I do want it to be accurate enough for other projects so I can measure the power for like a home energy monitor.
