API Technologies’ New Current Sensors and Transformers Measure a Wide Range of Currents
API Technologies (Orlando, FL) recently announced the availability of its new 5300 series of current sensors and transformers that measure a wide range of AC currents by transforming them accurately from high to low measurable values.
The 5300 series current sensors feature:
- Wide primary current range of 3.5 to 800 A.
- Availability in several types of current transformers, including low phase/high accuracy and high frequency.
The 5300 series current transformers feature:
- Wide operating frequency range of 20 - 100 kHz.
- Ability for total encapsulation, with or without wound primary turns and loading resistor.
All current sensors and transformers are built to meet the relevant UL, ANSI, VDE, CE, and MIL standards. In addition, API also offers EMRL current transformers, which were designed to comply with standards for electrical and electronic measuring test equipment.
Current sensors detect electrical current in a wire and generate a signal proportional to it, which is then utilized to display the measured current or stored for further analysis in a data acquisition system. Similarly, current transformers are used to measure alternating electric currents. When current in a circuit is too high, a current transformer produces a reduced current that is accurately proportional, so it can be conveniently connected to measuring and recording instruments.
