- Various Types:
a) Conventional Current Transformer
b) Hall Effect Current Transformer
PCB mountable current sensor up to 25 Amps
Measure AC currents up to 50 kHz
EN 50178, IEC 61010-1
- Principle of Hall Effect:
When a current-carrying conductor is placed into a magnetic field, a voltage is generated perpendicular to both the current and the field. This principle is known as the Hall Effect.
- Advantages of Hall Effect Current Transformer:
a) Measure AC currents up to 50 kHz.
b) Sensor measures AC & DC currents
c) Linear output over the entire range (better than 1% accuracy from 100 mA to 25 amps)
d) High speed sensing
e) Immune to most types of external disturbance.
f) Power consumption is very low.
g) Works on a wide supply voltage.
