Combine a Yocto-Amp with a YoctoHub-Ethernet to get an autonomous appliance with built-in network connectivity:
This device is a digital USB ammeter that allows you to measure current automatically. It can provide quite precises digital measures (2 mA, 1%). It works with direct current (DC) as well as alternating current (AC) for which it provides the RMS value (5 mA or 3%).
This device is isolated, which means that the sensing part is electrically disconnected from the USB part: you can measure any current including from the mains, without risk of frying your computer.

The YoctoHub-Ethernet is a Fast-Ethernet module that can host three Yoctopuce modules to access them remotely. It can be powered either by a USB Micro-B cable, or directly from the Ethernet cable (PoE compatible with 802.3af standard).
Three Yoctopuce modules can be connected directly, one of which can be fixed directly on the YoctoHub-Ethernet and connected using a Board2Board-127 connector. More devices can be connected thanks to the YoctoHub-Shield extension. The YoctoHub-Ethernet can power Yoctopuce devices up to 2A.
How can this unit be used to measure higher amperage than 10A? Is it possible to measure 20-50A DC (~15v)?
@evansharp: No, but you can use a Yocto-milliVolt-Rx with a external shunt. See: www.yoctopuce.com/EN/article/transforming-the-yocto-millivolt-rx-into-a-usb-ammeter
