Testing started!

Results so far:
With 0.5" separating bus bar and current sensor, 166 amps actual through the bus bar caused the voltage to change from 2.469v to 2.900v on the current sensor. For this current sensor, if the output voltage is 4.6v, then that indicates the "maximum current". So in my case, on the first attempt, my current sensor has a range of -808 to 808 amps.

I think I'll give it a bit more space, and see what happens. Not bad for a first space guess though!
