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!
Sweet, that's a pretty slick little sensor. Does it matter what's in the "space"? Does it have to be air? Could a block of wood or plastic be machined to the proper thickness and everything glued together? just trying to think of easy assembly methods...
