How is current measured using shunts?

created by Bert Weiss, Technical Support Resistors, Rutronik Elektronische Bauelemente GmbH |   Knowledge

The use of shunts for measuring current is a simpler and more cost-effective alternative to the use of sensors for current measurement. However, they are precision measuring devices, and a few things need to be considered to achieve measurements of the necessary precision.

How can sensors be powered with a battery for as long as possible in IoT applications?

created by Bianca Aichinger, Product Marketing Manager, RECOM Power GmbH; Co-author: Axel Stangl, Product Sales Manager Power Supplies, Rutronik Elektronische Bauelemente GmbH |   Rutronik

Without sensors, there can be no Internet of Things (IoT). The fact that they require power is often overlooked. Not much, mind you – but they cannot work without it. The latest switching regulators allow sensors to be powered for much longer using batteries. Even from a 4–20mA current loop, it is possible to produce three times as much power.
