Abstract

See full text

A mounting structure of a current sensor includes: the current sensor including a detection portion; and a connection member for electrically connecting between a battery post of a battery and a harness. The current sensor is mounted on the connection member. The connection member includes a predetermined portion, a current density of which is higher than that of other portions of the connection member. The detection portion of the current sensor is disposed on the predetermined portion of the connection member when the current sensor is mounted on the connection member. The mounting structure may include a pair of holes, one for connection at the battery post, the other one for connection to the harness.
