You are correct. If the positive side of the power-supply is connected to the A-meter, the A-meters will short current to gnd.physic.dude wrote:The problem I have is that when the current meter had it's (larger) sense leads plugged in to the circuit, and more specifically the positive of the two sense leads, a short circuit is produced.
It is not a "bug". It is clearly documented "The black sensing wire is tied to the black power wire internally,". The bold text is taken from the product description http://www.adafruit.com/products/574.physic.dude wrote:The bug is caused by the shared ground needed by the volt meter.
"To do this, you'll need to make sure that you are low-side sensing. This is because the ground power wire is connected to the black current sense wire." Again, emphasis is not mine but from the product description.physic.dude wrote:Does anyone have any solutions to remedy this bug without losing features?
