Shunt Voltage Register (01h, Read-Only)

The Shunt Voltage register stores the current shunt voltage reading, VSHUNT. Negative numbers are represented in twos complement format. Generate the two's complement of a negative number by complementing the absolute value binary number and adding 1. Extend the sign, denoting a negative number by setting the MSB = 1.

Example: For a value of VSHUNT = –80 mV:

  1. Take the absolute value: 80mV
  2. Translate this number to a whole decimal number (80 mV ÷ 2.5 µV) = 32000
  3. Convert this number to binary = 111 1101 0000 0000
  4. Complement the binary result = 000 0010 1111 1111
  5. Add '1' to the complement to create the two's complement result = 000 0011 0000 0000
  6. Extend the sign and create the 16-bit word: 1000 0011 0000 0000 = 8300h

This register displays the averaged value if averaging is enabled. Full-scale range = 81.9175 mV (decimal = 7FFF); LSB: 2.5 μV.
