Current sensors serve one specific purpose -- to detect alternating current (AC) or direct current (DC) in a wire in order to generate a proportional signal. Current sensing is especially critical for power metering applications. The technology behind current sensors (more specifically current sense transformers) comes in various forms:
Each type of current sense transformer comes with their own unique set of strengths and weakness, which are important to understand before selecting them for your application. Compare them side-by-side and discover more about the benefits of the Rogowski Coil by downloading our white paper here.
Our surface mount and through hole current sense magnetics are excellent solutions for low-cost regulation of switch mode power supplies. RoHS compliant and available with both reinforced and functional safety levels, our current sensing products are ideal for Smart Grid and other applications focused on energy management.
