Current sensing or measurement is required for revenue generation or feedback control mechanism or monitoring. Current can be measured by a Hall Sensor with Flux concentrator logic, Shunt logic, Current Transformer or Rogowski Coil. Modules are integrated assemblies incorporating flux concentrators, Shunts, Hall Sensors, Temperature sensors, CAN and IOT.

Solutions

Flux Concentrator

These are soft ferromagnetic core featuring superior material characteristics such as high linearity and very low hysteresis. The core is designed for high-speed contact less current sensing in combination with a magnetic field sensor, i.e., Hall sensor, and a current conductor...

Shunt

Shunt

SHUNT is precision element for the energy meter which works in all kinds of electrical meter as power measure. The Manganin Shunt resistor is used as a key part of the measuring device inside the electronic ammeter The EBW type shunt gives precise measurement. It also helps to save cost...

Current transformer

A current transformer (CT) is used for measurement of alternating electric current for energy meter. Current transformers, together with voltage (or potential) transformers (VT or PT) are known as instrument transformers. When current in a circuit is too high to apply directly to measuring instruments...

Modules

The “clamp-on” current sensors are particularly useful for easy and safe installation. They are installed straightforwardly onto a wire going into the electrical load without the need to do any high voltage electrical work. The current sensor consists of a Melexis Hall Sensor (MLX91208)...

Industries

Current sensing is widely used in industries like EV/HEV, Renewable Energy, Aerospace, Defense, Medical, Safety, Energy meters.

FAQ

  • 1) What is a current sensor and how does it operate?
  • Ans - A current sensor is a device that detects and converts current to an easily measured output voltage, which is proportional to the current through the measured path. When a current flows through a wire or in a circuit, voltage drop occurs. Also, a magnetic field is generated surrounding the current carrying conductor.

  • Ans - Current sensing or measurement is required for revenue generation or feedback control mechanism or monitoring.

  • 3) What is the Clamp on Current sensor and how does the hall effect current sensor work?
  • Ans - A clamp on device/ module is a circuit used to measure current flowing through a wire without any physical connection made to it. The clamp consists of 2 part flux concentrator which encapsulates the current carrying wire and the magnetic flux produced by the current is focused on to the Hall sensing IC. A Hall effect sensor is a device that is used to measure the magnitude of a magnetic field. Its output voltage is directly proportional to the magnetic field strength through it. The flux concentrator in the module focuses the magnetic field on the ic, which senses the field strength and produces voltage as output.
