There's a unique new addition to our Sidewinder® AC current sensor line -- the PA3207NL.

PA3207NL-current-sensorThis non-round sensor specifically fits the standard 0.750” x 0.093” buss bar of an ANSI 2S smart meter, making the design of the meter base simpler and the assembly easier. The current sensor is linear from 0.1 Amps to 200 Amps. It provides extremely accurate measurement of AC current at 50 or 60 Hz and meets the ANSI C12.20 standard for immunity to external magnetic fields.

Field Applications Engineer for Pulse Electronics Power BU, Glenn Roemer, explained:

“Instead of shaping the buss bar to fit the sensor, Pulse has designed the sensor to fit the buss bar. This simplifies the meter base design and assembly and provides measurement and control engineers with a lower cost current sensing solution.”
