BACnet meters are the key to a successful building automation system
BACnet is an acronym that stands of Building Automation and Control Networks. BACnet is the backbone that connects all of the various building automation processes together.
The Benefits of Using Split Core Transformers
There are many advantages to using a split-core current transformer. Learn how they compare to solid-core transformers.
What You Need to Know About Current Sensors
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?
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 […]

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
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
Learn the advantages of using a flexible current transformer, or Rogowski coil, in installations.
What You Need to Know About Current Sensors
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 […]

Innovative DC Current Sensor System Promotes Responsible Energy Use
Global energy demand will continue to increase due to population growth. In a recent Hydrocarbon Engineering report, Emma McAleavey writes that even with energy efficiency measures in place, residential, commercial, and industrial demand for energy will grow between 2010 and 2040. Fortunately, North America and Europe will see the lowest increase in demand. Building code […]
Flexible Current Transformers Mitigate the Effects of Power Surges
Charlotte Douglas International Airport in North Carolina was rendered blind by a power surge a few days before 2015. The sudden occurrence knocked out radar and air traffic control systems for only ten minutes, but it created hours of delays for incoming and outgoing flights. A subsequent update by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) pointed […]

New, Upgraded Hall Effect Technology
Any type of current flow creates a proportional magnetic field, and DC current transducers measure this generated field using Hall Effect technology. Hall Effect is defined as the generation of a magnetic field perpendicular to the current and a voltage difference across an electrical conductor transverse to an electrical current in the conductor. This article […]
