I am planning on using an MLX91206 to measure the current draw of a set of Peltier elements. They draw up to 17.3A at 24V. However I would like to measure their current draw without interfering by placing sense resistors.
So I decided to use the MLX91206. Could someone please explain how to connect this thing to an Arduino? A rough pinout diagram would be really useful.

The datasheet says

So I'd connect GND to GND, "Supply Voltage" to 5V and "Analog Output" to any free ADC input pin.
