Voltmeter Ammeter Kit - Blue Backlight LCD
Voltmeter Ammeter can measure voltage 0-70V or 0-500V with 100mV resolution and current consumption 0-10A or more with 10mA resolution. The meter is a perfect addition to any power supply, battery chargers and other electronic projects where voltage and current must be monitored. The meter uses PIC16F876A microcontroller with built-in ADC (Analog to Digital Converter) and 16 x 2 LCD display with blue backlight. With slight modification it is possible to measure higher voltage and current.
To measure voltage that is higher than 70 Volts simply replace R3 6.8K resistor with included 1K resistor. This will allow to measure up to 500 Volts.
To measure current that is higher than 10A simply replace 0.47 Ohm 5W power resistor with higher wattage or lower resistance resistor. For example 0.1 Ohm 10W resistor will allow to measure up to 20 Amps.
This kit comes with all the parts required to build Voltmeter Ammeter including PCB with beautiful red solder mask and plated through holes. Voltmeter can also measure AC voltage if rectifier bridge is added to voltage input. This meter can both measure and be supplied by the same power source.
