Pulse Electronics’ PA3209NL Sidewinder AC current sensor accommodates current-carrying conductors up to 0.750 in. in diameter or the industry standard 0.750 in.-by-0.093 in. bus bar. With a dynamic range of 0.10 to more than 1,000 A, it provides extremely accurate measurement of AC current at 50 Hz or 60 Hz in smart meters, industrial motor controls and power line monitoring applications. It handles the full-current measurement capabilities of the traditional current transformer.
