Clamp-on current sensor fits existing solid conductors
Pulse Electronics Corporation (San Diego, CA) introduces its new 50Hz/60Hz, di/dt AC current sensor that can be clamped onto an existing solid conductor without having to disconnect the conductor. The PA3828NL clamp-on sensor has a linear current range of 0.1 amps to 200 amps with 1.0% accuracy for high precision power measuring applications at 50Hz/60Hz AC. Another growing application is for arc fault AC current monitoring, sensing frequencies up to 1MHz. Features include:
• Applications that include metering, industrial motor control, power monitoring, circuit protection, and current fault monitoring.
• Sensor that has an internal diameter of 6.2mm and opens to 7.0mm to easily clamp onto a conductor.
• An output voltage over a dynamic range from 0.1 to 1000 amperes.
