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.
