Machine Load readout??

Machine load would be in Amperage.

It would be nice to add warnings.

If the max amps on your machine is 4 amps. Sound an alarm at 3 amps 
and another more frantic alarm at 3.5 amps.

Measuring amps is so easy with ACS712, tied to an Arduino.

A lot of the bigger machines in machine shops have load meters.


I don't know what those sensors are rated at, but it looks like a fairly easy thing to add in the hardware. I will add it to the list of "ideas", but not sure if/when I will get to try it...

Thank you
