DC Current Transducer – DCT-0016 by Magnelab

Product Description

Magnelab’s DCT-0016-100 is a 16-mm DC Current Transducer that transforms an AC current of 100 Amps to a DC voltage output of 5V.

This DC Current Transducer is ±2% accurate at full scale and has a response time of 300 ms.  The DCT-0016 is lightweight and has an over-voltage protection circuit installed. It is easy to install because of its split-core design.

The contact surface of the DCT-0016 is waterproofed to avoid rust. This DC current transducer can be used for commercial/industrial/residential needs and can be used with a large range of meters.

Split-core sensors are ideal for installation on existing electrical wiring by snapping around the conductor. The DCT-0016 has a self-locking mechanism.
