This component is a universal current measurement board with additional relays, which can be plugged on top of a base card. Currently, the NovaCarts Multi I/O Board – NC-GMB3000 is supported. Since the current measurement is accurate in a wide range of currents, the board is suitable to measure currents from the double-digit ampere range to the microampere range.
The board offers three channels ranging from 0 to 40 A and one channel with a measurement range from 0 to 10 A, all of which include the measurement of quiescent current. Two channels with a measurement range from 0 to 10 A complement the board. Furthermore, the board allows test engineers to measure and switch the voltage of the output pin based on Ground for five channels. In addition, every channel has an electronic fuse capability, which makes it possible to define a fuse current in the software for every channel.
