5A/1A Current Sensor – ACT-160 by Aim

Product Description

The ACT-160 is a 5A or 1A current sensor with 80mm x 160mm opening and an input rating of 2000 – 5000 Amps.

This 5A or 1A current sensor measures the input amperage and outputs a corresponding 5A/1A output. It is 0.5% accurate when used with a burden of 15 VA.  This current transformer provides multiple installation options for a durable installation with consistent output.  The opening is 160 mm x 80 mm.

The ACT-160 can operate from -15°C – 60°C and from 50-400 Hz. It is designed to withstand up to 3000 Vac.  The unit weighs 6.4 lbs (2.9 kg).

This 5A or 1A current transformer provides a cost-effective way to monitor up to 5000A.
