WiFi AC Current Monitor for Amazon® AWS®
NCD set out to build the world’s best WiFi AC Current Monitor for Amazon® AWS®. In doing so, NCD now incorporates a precision Split Core AC Current Monitoring Sensor with a WiFi Module and Control Board. This WiFi AC Current Monitor makes it easy to monitor AC current flowing through the sensor and receive alerts when the AC current value exceeds the preset limits.
This WiFi AC Current Monitor for AWS IoT samples current at a high data rate and calculates the RMS value. Next, the device sends a data transmission to the Amazon AWS cloud where the user can access that data. Therefore, the user can monitor the AC current flowing through their equipment from any location via WiFi by using the AWS cloud to view incoming data.
This WiFi AC Current Monitor is made to be directly accessible from AWS®. As one of the world’s most popular IoT platforms, AWS is an essential tool for a wireless sensor device. Therefore, connectivity of the NCD ecosystem of IoT wireless sensors remains a top priority for the NCD engineering team. Note that this device will need to be externally powered and is capable of using a 6-32VDC power supply.
When it comes to AC current monitoring, nothing compares to the ease of use, low price, high accuracy, operational temperature range, or security features NCD has to offer.

Monitor AC Current with AWS® IoT Core®
AWS® has a service called IoT Core® that allows the user to stream sensor data through an MQTT Client. Since this service is accessible over WiFi, it can be used to remotely monitor AC Current with this device.
Once the sensor is properly set up, data can be streamed as shown in the visual to the right. The Cloud Topic Format can be customized during sensor setup after following the user guide for this product.
The MQTT Client uses this Cloud Topic Format setting as a destination for the sensor to transmit data to. The user would then subscribe to the Cloud Topic to stream sensor data from the cloud.
Setting up and using a sensor has never been easier. After following the product user guide listed under the resources tab, the user will be able to configure the sensor’s settings over WiFi as well as use it’s testing capabilities through AWS® IoT Core®.
After creating an AWS account the user will be able to configure the sensor with NCD’s user interface which will automatically open once upon connecting to the sensor through it’s WiFi module.
AWS® IoT Thing Shadow®
Another easy way to configure the settings on this device is to use AWS® IoT Thing Shadow®. Most of the sensor configuration can be done here from the cloud making it remotely accessible.
Testing with AWS is time efficient and easy. The User Guide found under the resources tab will lead the user to the MQTT client like in the following screen. The MQTT client is where one will be able to control the interval of transmission and see the data from the sensor.
