Calculating A/D bit values:

Jumper range is specified as AC RMS values (Vpeak=Vrms*sqr2)


Available ranges With a 0.1 Ohm shunt resistor With 0.12 Ohm
therefore: 1 = 1.4142 Vpeak 10 A 14.1421 Apeak 8.333333 A 11.7851
2 = 2.8284 20 A 28.2843 16.66667 A 23.5702
2.5 = 3.5355 25 A 35.3553 20.83333 A 29.4628
5 = 7.0711 50 A 70.7107 41.66667 A 58.9256
6 = 8.4853 60 A 84.8528 50 A 70.7107
12 = 16.9706 120 A 169.7056 100 A 141.4214
15 = 21.2132 150 A 212.1320 125 A 176.7767
30 = 42.4264 300 A 424.2641 250 A 353.5534
110 = 155.5635
220 = 311.1270

Positive range of A/D = 2047 points (12 bit ADC)


So peak full scale / 2047 + volts per A/D bit With a 0.1 Ohm shunt resistor With 0.12 Ohm
1 = 0.0006909 VDC per bit 0.691 mVdc per bit 10 A 6.9087 mA per bit 8.333333 A 5.7573

220 = 0.1519917 151.992

Primary side value of 1 bit = X Amps (or Volts) per bit * transformer ratio
therefore:
CT Range Shunt
2000:5 5V 0.1 Ohm = 13.8 A per bit NOTES:
140:1 12V 0.1 Ohm = 11.6 Blue text indicates a calculation field
220:1 12V 0.12 Ohm = 15.2 indicates standard range jumper settings
400:1 12V 0.12 Ohm = 27.6 indicates range jumper used with divide by 2 jumper
160:1 30V 0.12 Ohm = 27.6 Full scale indicates ADC saturation point (waveform clipping)
400:1 30V 0.12 Ohm = 69.1 Beware maximum shunt rating specification!
