The AD8212 is a high common-mode voltage, current shunt monitor. It accurately amplifies a small differential input voltage in the presence of large common-mode voltages up to 65 V (>500 V with an external PNP transistor). The AD8212 is ideal for current monitoring across a shunt resistor in applications controlling loads, such as motors and solenoids. The current output of the device is proportional to the input differential voltage. The user can select an external resistor to set the desired gain. The typical common-mode voltage range of the AD8212 is 7 V to 65 V.
