Coreless Magnetic Current Sensors

Modern industrial drives require accurate current measurement for effectively regulating the torque and ensuring maximization of operational efficiency levels. For achieving necessary efficiency levels along with the safety requirements, the measurement methodology must achieve a high degree of linearity and respond rapidly. This is especially true for detecting conditions such as short-circuit and over-current. For instance, it is necessary to arrest the fault condition from an over-current situation Read more [...]

How to Select Current Sensors?

To select an appropriate AC current sensor for an application, you must know the operational frequency range and the current rating the sensor will encounter. Additional considerations that you will need to decide are the type of the sensor, its mounting (through-hole or surface mount), turns ratio, and the overall dimensions.
Sensor type refers to a sensor only configuration, where a conductor integral to the application forms the primary. Another type could be a complete current transformer where Read more [...]
