The 4DS by Sentran Corp is a split core DC volt transducer. It takes up to 500A and outputs a corresponding 0-5 Vdc signal.
The 4DS rectifies the AC sinewave to obtain a DC output. Only passive rectifiers are used allowing the unit to be self-powered. Note this is not a true RMS conversion. This split core DC volt transducer is 1% accurate over the range 10% – 100% and has a 0.5% ripple.
The hinges cannot be easily broken (made of steel). Many customers prefer this model over the DCT-0036-500 and DCT-0024-250 due to its similar cost and high level of quality. The 4DS is made in the USA.
The Amperage / Size option indicates the 4DS series that we stock. Other available sizes can be ordered – see data sheet for full details on available options. Available output voltages include: 2.5 Vdc, 5.0 Vdc and 10 Vdc.
