Current Sensor Inputs Configuration when Using Shunt

The Shunt Resistor technique uses a small (shunt) resistor placed in the path of the load current. When the load current flows through this resistance, a small voltage drop is developed across it. This voltage drop is measured by an input of the AFE, which converts it into the corresponding current consumption.

Warning: A shunt resistor must be placed in series with the line to be measured, then connected to the measurement inputs. The demonstration board is referred to neutral; therefore, a shunt resistor can only be used in neutral line. Using a shunt resistor to measure currents in lines 1 or 2 will damage the board, and it is dangerous for the user.
For Shunt operation, the input network must only provide a first-order low-pass filter. The filter must be tuned with the following component values:
