Pulse Electronics' New Sidewinder AC Current Sensor has a Dynamic Range of 0.10-1000+ Amps
For highly accurate power measurement in smart meters, industrial motor controls, and power line monitoring
"The Sidewinder is a breakthrough in power sensing technology," said Glenn Roemer, field application engineer, Pulse Electronics. "It differs from traditional current sense transformers because of its coreless design. This makes it lighter, easier to assemble, and less expensive. By adding a larger inner diameter to the Sidewinder family, a larger buss bar can pass through the sensor, enabling it to measure 1000 Amps and higher."
The Sidewinder PA3209NL current sensor meets ANSI C12.20 accuracy class 0.2 and IEC 62053-22 class 0.2 as well as the Class 1 requirement for immunity to external AC magnetic fields. It is completely immune to external DC magnetic fields. The PA3209NL takes its place among an existing line-up of Sidewinder products capable of sensing up to 40 Amps (PA3206NL), 120 Amps (PA3208NL), and 200 Amps (PA3202NL). The sensors are packaged in trays with a price of approximately $2.45 each in quantities of ten thousand. Lead time is 8-10 weeks. The product is available immediately.
