New Rogowski Coil Videos Available

Posted on

I recently created a blog on increasing the output of a Rogowski coil.  To add to the content of that blog post, I’ve also created a video that describes the effect of wrapping a Rogowski coil multiple times around  a conductor. A couple of weeks ago I also added a video on Magnelab’s new “tear drop” Rogowski […]


Increasing the Output of a Rogowski Coil without an Integrator

Posted on

Rogowski coils are convenient, lightweight, and easy-to-install.  However, the output of a Rogowski coil is very low. For example, the RCT-1800-000, made by Magnelab, outputs 70 mV for every 1000A on the primary, when operating at 60 Hz.  If operating at 50 Hz the output is even lower, only 58.33 mV per 1000A.  Dent Rogowski […]


What is Modbus and Why Are Modbus Meters So Popular?

Posted on

Modbus is one of the first and probably one of the most popular systems in use today for creating an intelligent system for controlling electrical devices. Developed in 1979, Modbus is a serial communications system that allows facility managers to control a number of devices from one centralized location using a series of predefined commands. […]


Current Sensing Theory: The Technology Behind AC Current Sensors

Posted on

Ask any electrical professional what the most important piece of equipment he or she carries and the answer you will almost certainly receive is their current sensor. There are different current sensors for DC current and for AC current, and this article will focus on the technology used for accurately assessing AC currents. In any […]


Current Transformer Basics: What You Need To Know About Current Transformers

Posted on

A current transformer is a device that is designed to create an alternating current from a direct current. The device will measure the direct current in its primary winding and convert it to a proportional alternating current in its secondary winding. They are used to reduce a high voltage current into a much smaller and […]


BACnet meters are the key to a successful building automation system

Posted on

Building automation is one way that corporations are not only saving money when it comes to operating their various facilities, but reducing their carbon footprints. So, how does building automation help companies save money by reducing energy consumption? The key lies in the use of BACnet. BACnet is an acronym that stands of Building Automation […]


The Benefits of Using Split Core Transformers

Posted on

If you’re looking at current transformers, you have two main options: split-core transformers and solid-core transformers. A contactless, split-core transformer’s claim to fame is its ability to be snapped over pre-existing wires, making them ideal for retrofitting projects and more. There is no need to screw or weld any type of bracketry, so they are […]


What You Need to Know About Current Sensors

Posted on

When it comes to current sensors, you have two main options: open loop or closed loop. Open loop current sensors can measure either AC or DC current and offer you electrical isolation between the circuit you are trying to measure and the output of the sensor in order to provide you with a more accurate […]


How Does Power Factor Correction Help Your Company?

Posted on

When it comes to reducing the power demands of the your building, one of the easiest ways to do it is to increase the load carrying capabilities of the existing circuits in your system while reducing power system losses. This can be done through a process known as power factor reduction. Here’s what you need […]


The Benefits of Using BACnet Meters

Posted on

Are you running your energy most efficiently? If you are using BACnet meters, you can rest assure that you are efficient. BACnet is a term that refers to a communications protocol that is used to monitor and control the energy consumption of a facility. In fact, the term BACnet stands for building automation and control networks. It […]


Various Uses For Current Transformers

Posted on

There are a number of different types of current transformers available on the market today to deal with the various applications they are needed for. One of the configurations that is commonly seen needs a split core transformer. You will likely find split core transformers used in harsh environments or inaccessible places where monitoring of […]


The Benefits of Flexibility For A Current Transformer

Posted on

The benefits of flexibility for a current transformer are pretty easy to identify. Flexibility means that you can put the current transformer capability in different configurations as needed to deal with hard to reach places and mechanics. A flexible current transformer will do the job when it is important to get into those spaces that […]


DC Current Sensor/Current Transformer

Posted on

Electrical current sensing performs an important function in the world of electrical usage. When we harness electricity so it will work for us, we have to also know that there is some danger involved if the electrical current goes off and does something we don’t expect from it. If you get too much current going […]


What You Need to Know About Current Sensors

Posted on

When considering what it takes to correctly and safely work with electricity, it is important to understand some of the common components frequently used. A good example is a current sensor. In the most basic terms, a current sensor is a device that finds electric current normally passing through an electrical wire, and subsequently produces a […]
