Hi
All

Here is a definition for another Hall Effect Current Sensor, range 0 to 30amps.
The ACS715 sensor is about the size of a postage stamp, made by Pololu and costs about $10
The shunt resistance is only 1.2 milliohms
Built in isolation of 2100 volts prevents any ground loops affecting the measurement.
Accuracy is about +/-1.5%

sensor={
     id=HALL EFFECT SHUNT (ACS715)
     function=AMPS
     pins=C37_P4 C37_P6 C37_P7 C37_P8 C37_P9 C37_P10 C37_P11 C37_P12 C37_P20 C37_P21 C37_P22 C37_P23 C37_P31
     name=AMPS
     min_val=0
     max_val=30
     resolution=1
     round=.1
     is_piecewise=0
     low_coeff={
           c_x4=0
           c_x3=0
           c_x2=0
           c_x1=7.5188
           c_x0=-3.7594
           }
     low_resistance=NONE
     low2high_cross=0
     high_coeff={
           c_x4=0
           c_x3=0
           c_x2=0
           c_x1=0
           c_x0=0
           }
     high_resistance=NONE
     high2low_cross=0
     shift=5
     }

BTW there are other models available with different current ranges but will require a different definition
