    ACS722 Hall sensor IC...minimum loading for output signal voltage pin?

    Hello... On pg 6 of the ACS722 Hall sensor IC datasheet it says minimal loading for VIOUT pin is 4k7. Does this mean we need to load it with at least 4k7?
    (sorry I did search this subject topic in the forum but couldn’t find it)

    Hi,

    minimum load resistance means maximum load current.

    --> use a load resistance >= 4k7

    You have asked the same question before, and it has been answered. https://www.edaboard.com/showthread....=1#post1674196

    I think the datasheet is absolutely clear about this point. You must not overload the output, but it doesn't need a load.
