measure Vac signal with Vdc IO FP-AI-100


We are trying to use hall-effect current sensor to measure motor currents. High accuracy is not required. So we are thinking of using FI-AI-100 to do this. But output of the hall-effect current sensor is about 0-5 Vac/60Hz. I wonder whether or not we can use FI-AI-100 here and what we may read back.

Anyone has any experience ? Thanks in advance.

Although the FP-AI-100 can handle the voltage you are going to be reading, it is not meant to be reading AC voltage. You would be able to accurately see the 60 Hz frequency of your signal, due to the ability to sample faster than twice your frequency, but you would not be sampling fast enough to accurately depict all of your peaks.
