Practical Control Solutions has released the CYHCT-C2E range of open loop Hall Effect current transducers designed for DC current measurement with ranges from 300A to 1000A.
Unlike traditional shunts these transducers are electrically isolated from the current carrying conductor and impose no insertion loss. These devices have a split core to facilitate easy installation on existing systems.
Accuracy and linearity are typically within +/- 1%. These devices have a high current overload capability, typically thirteen times their nominal current.
Typical applications include uninterruptible power supplies, welders, electroplating rectifiers, and DC drive systems.
