Voltmeter Ammeter Kit – Blue Backlight LCD




Voltmeter Ammeter is a great kit to measure voltage and current at the same time. It measures 0-70V or 0-500V voltage with 100mV resolution and current from 0 to 10A. It’s a perfect addition to any power supply, battery chargers and other electronic projects where voltage and current must be monitored. Kit uses PIC16F876A microcontroller with built-in ADC (Analog to Digital Converter) to sample voltage with current and display it on 16 x 2 backlighted LCD display. It comes with all the parts required to build high quality kit, including double-sided PCB with beautiful red solder mask and plated through holes. 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. Voltmeter Ammeter Kit - Blue Backlight LCDTo measure current that is higher than 10A simply replace 0.1 Ohm 5W power resistor with higher wattage resistor. For example 20W 0.1 Ohm resistor will allow to measure up to 20 Amps. Kit can also measure AC voltage if rectifier bridge is added to voltage input as well as measure and be supplied by the same power source.
