The Voltage/Current Bricklet 2.0 can be used to extend Bricks by the possibility to measure power/voltage/current. To do this you only have to put the Bricklet between your power supply (e.g. battery) and your load (e.g. motor).
In case of battery powered systems you can measure the state of the battery by bidirectional current measurement (charge/discharge).
This Bricklet ist not galvanically isolated to the Tinkerforge system. This means that there is a direct electrical connection between the terminals of the Bricklet and the rest of the system. Dependent of the application this can lead to undesired connections, ground loops or short circuits. These problems can be prevented by using the Bricklet together with a Isolator Bricklet.
