3 Phase Flexible CT – RCS-3600 by Magnelab

Clear

All RCS units require Active Power

Product Description

Magnelab’s RCS-3600 is a 3 Phase Flexible CT kit that transforms an AC input current up to 5000 Amps to a 0.333 Volt output.

The RCS-3600 is a 3 Phase Flexible CT kit that comes with 3 RopeCTs (Rogowski Coils) and one integrator (signal conditioner) that converts the RopeCT voltage to 0.333 volt AC output. The integrator requires a DC power supply that operates between 9 and 36 Vdc.

The RCS-3600, in addition to its large 12″ diameter, also allows for very wide ranges of input currents.  The product is designed to operate from 10% to 130% of the rated current with 1% accuracy.  For example, the RCS-3600-5000, which is the 5000A version, will be 1% accurate from 500A to 6500A.

The RCS-3600 has these advantages in comparison to a traditional CT:

  • Greater linearity
  • High amperage measurement capability
  • Extremely flexible
  • Lightweight
  • Large circumferences available
  • No shorting block required

Compatible power meters accept a voltage input.  Look for meters on our website that start with this symbol:

Voltage

If you are purchasing a Measurlogic, Veris or eGauge meter you do not need to purchase the RCS integrator (at least if ordered properly).  Instead, you can use QTY 3 of the passive RCT-3600-000 (that comes without the integrator) and save money.  If you are not using one of these 3 manufacturers, you will most likely need an integrator to compensate for the phase shift and low voltage output of the RCT-3600-000.

Note: The integrator requires a power supply of 9 to 36 Vdc, which is not included. You may
purchase one here.
