Calibrating a Current Sensor

by DougLorenz » Mon Sep 07, 2015 4:04 am

I'd like to be able to calibrate a current sensor on one of my drones, but I don't have a multimeter that can handle the necessary amperage. What do you all use as an ammeter for 50A+ DC current?

I have a clip-on meter which can do DC current but I'm unsure how accurate it is. I just calculate the calibration from datasheet figures and then if required make some fine adjustments so that consumption (mAh) lines up with my battery charger.
