Electricy sensor bad reading

Post by webmaster2 » Thu May 19, 2016 6:20 pm

I've attached the sensor to my Arduino Uno and uploaded the example sketch posted in the Wiki.
I obtain very strange and enormous value, the reading is in some ways related and to the real utilization (a 18W lamp)... when I turn OFF and ON the lamp the value change, but the value are really very big! like 7.5A (it cannot be possibile because the lamp is only 18W).
How I'm wrong?
