The input side the charger reads (110-220 V, 50 Hz, 0.3A).So we can expected a sinusoidal wave for the current time stamp with maximum current restricted to 0.3A.
However, on plotting the time vs current below graph is achieved which is obviously wrong:
Can somebody please let me know why am I not getting sinusoidal waveform, I would be very much appreciative
I never dived into current measuring, so I am not sure if this is relevant or not. First thing I thought was measuring current (A) versus voltage (V). But I suppose both are sinus shaped.
The next though I had is that the sensor's purpose was to measure the load (A) on a wire, so maybe the sensor is actually making it a flat line already? I honestly have no clue, this is just me guessing.
TinyMediaManager Small, but slick little application to manage your movies and movies meta-data (Windows, MacOS X and Linux!).
NAPS2 - Not Another PDF Scanner 2 Wonderful simple and reliable scanner application for Windows users. This still depends on your Windows having the proper scanner drivers installed, but it makes scanning to images or PDFs a lot easier.
Packages Great tool for MacOS X developers, to create your own installer packages (free).
Lubuntu A Ubuntu variant aimed at being small and fast. Love it!
NCH Software - WavePad Awesome Audio editor (from audio and even video files!), free for home use, available for Windows, MacOS X, iOS and Android.
