MCS180x: Hall Effect Linear Current Sensors for 5 to 50A

The MCS180x family presented by MPS (Monolithic Power Systems)  are isolated bi-directional Hall effect linear current sensors for AC or DC current sensing applications. They provide a cost effective way to replace shunt, transformer or optical isolated solutions for greater efficiency, and smaller form factor.

The advantages are electrical isolation between primary and secondary allows for use in high or low side sensing applications, and a low conductive path resistance of less than 1mΩ minimizes power loss. Hall sensing converts the magnetic field of the input current into an accurate proportional output voltage. The differential Hall sensing architecture eliminates the effects of stray magnetic fields

MCS180x Family

  • 6 IC versions to detect full range of 5A to 50A for best accuracy
  • Output voltage proportional to input current - AC or DC
  • Two Vcc bias options: 3.3V or 5V
  • Output voltage zero to Vcc corresponds to full negative to positive current range
  • Linear output voltage vs. current
  • Near zero magnetic hysteresis
