Current sensor has unique non-round shape
Pulse Electronics Corporation announces a unique new addition to the Sidewinder AC current sensor line, the PA3207NL. This non-round sensor specifically fits the standard 0.750"x0.093" buss bar of an ANSI 2S smart meter, making the design of the meter base simpler and the assembly easier. The current sensor is linear from 0.1 Amps to 200 Amps. It provides extremely accurate measurement of AC current at 50 or 60 Hz and meets the ANSI C12.20 standard for immunity to external magnetic fields.
The PA3207NL Sidewinder is a core-less, light weight, lower cost, AC current sensor for highly accurate metering applications requiring 0.2% accuracy. Although primarily designed for smart meter applications, the non-round shape can be used in industrial motor controls, power line monitoring, and in commercial and industrial circuit panels.
The sensors are packaged in trays with a price of approximately $2.15 each in quantities of ten thousand. Lead time is 8-10 weeks. The product is available immediately.
