DC Voltage Output Current Transformer – DCT-0036 by Magnelab

500 Aac input : 5 Vdc output. 36mm split-core opening.

Product Description

Magnelab’s DCT-0036 is a 36-mm DC Voltage Output Current Transformer that converts an AC current of 500 Amps to a DC voltage output of 5V.

This DC Voltage Output Current Transformer is ±2% accurate at full scale and has a response time of 300 ms.  The DCT-0036 weighs 0.7 lbs 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-0036 is waterproofed to avoid rust.

Split-core sensors are ideal for installation on existing electrical wiring by snapping around the conductor. The DCT-0036 has a self-locking mechanism.
