Issue Details

I am using an USB-6225 to measure current, however the voltage I have is 20 Volts and the module has a range of 10 Volts. Can I use a voltage divider to get my voltage within 10 Volts and then measure the current across my sense resistor?

Solution

Yes, as long as you have the voltage at the device within its range you should be good.
