The G3X system is set up for Amploc KEY100 sensors, so that is what I would probably use since it is known to work. If you want more sensitivity for smaller maximum currents, you can loop the wire through a few times and adjust the sensor scale factor calibration accordingly.

Default How many loops?

Matt, as always appreciate the input. Since Iím looking to sense in 5 amp range with maximum 10 amps, any reason not to loop 10 times for the Key100 ? Thanks

I don't see why not. Although, now that I look at the manufacturer's datasheets, I think you actually could also use something like an AMP25 which would give you increased sensitivity. The two main constraints are that your sensor has to have a 2.5V output at 0A, and you have to know the mV/A scale factor. Not having tried it myself, I can't say for sure if it will work, but it seems reasonable.

Default AMPLOC Hall Sensor Bracket

I wanted to mount AMPLOC hall sensors on my firewall. I 3D printed a complete housing for the sensor that also secures the Molex connector and provides stress relief. Her is a pix of the bracket. The STL files can be found here: https://rv10.ca/3d-printed-stuff/

Excellent work, always a little surprised AMPLOC donít provide some mounting points or a holder of some kind for the products. Thanks for sharing the STL file.

That is really nice; a huge improvement over my adel clamps...

And I agree - thank you for sharing your files!

Very much appreciated and the link to the Control Approach pedal gust lock is great as well. Thanks for your contributions to the community and especially the SDS testing you do.
