I have a motor that's rated at 28A.
I want to monitor the power it's drawing so I got an ACS712 in its 30A variant. Knowing the voltage and multiplying by the output I get the power.
But what happens if the motor is stalled for whatever reason and the current goes above the supposed maximum of the ACS712? I tried to find some information about that in the datasheet but all that was stated regarding the measured current was a maximum transient of 100A for 100ms, which doesn't say quite a lot (at least to me).
Is the sensor going to be destroyed or is it just going to output the maximum regardless of how much above that the real current is?
