Critical facilities have a wide range of monitoring needs. Packet Power offers multi-circuit power monitoring that can provide an exact match to the amount of metering each job requires. Packet Power utilizes Rogowski coils from Aim Dynamics when space is tight or the circuits are particularly large. This has helped NFL stadiums, college campuses, data […]


Using Relay Monitors for Emergency­ Lighting Systems

Posted on

In today’s post on the Aim Dynamics blog, we’re looking at an application of TELE Haase voltage relays in facility management. Emergency lighting systems must be activated when the lights fail in public buildings, such as schools or hospitals, due to under-voltage. To achieve this, a voltage relay can monitor the 3 phases of the […]


Creating an Energy Management Solution for the Recycling Industry

How Rogowski Coils Work

Posted on

Named after their inventor, Walter Rogowski, the Rogowski style of coils was first developed in 1912.  They function as a measurement tools that determine the current moving through a conductor that has been inserted within the flexible Rogowski loop.  Rogowski coils allows the observer to accurately examine the changes in current over a given period. […]


DC Voltage Output CT Comparison

Posted on

If you need an Adc to Vdc transducer, you’ll want to compare the Magnelab DCT series and the Sentran Corp 4DS series.  To help you do this, consider the following chart: *May be customized. As response time decreases, ripple increases, and vice versa As you’ll see from the chart above, the Sentran 4DS can be optimized for […]


What is a UL Listed Current Transformer versus a UL Recognized CT?

Posted on

When it comes to current transformer (CT) requirements, approvals and registrations can cause quite a headache for inspectors and installers. Sifting through different products and components to decipher certifications and seals can be quite a challenge, which is why knowing the difference between a UL Listed current transformer and a UL Recognized current transformer is so […]


Regular to Revenue Grade Current Transformers: The difference is in the dollars

Posted on

Not all AC current sensors are created equal. Some are able to measure energy usage with acceptable accuracy, while others can pin down your energy bill to within 0.2%. What makes a Revenue Grade Current Sensor? Typically, current transformers are available in two accuracy classes: standard (or regular) CTs, as well as revenue grade CTs. […]
