The Ametes Bus Bar Current Module locates two magnetic field sensors on each side of an electric current Bus Bar. Two Sentron CSA-1VG precision Hall Effect IC’s sense the magnetic field as a function of current on both sides of the Bus Bar. This enables effective cancellation of external magnetic fields without magnetic cores or shielding which can give rise to non-linearity and hysteresis effects. Offset and Sensitivity are factory calibrated to a fixed magnetic sensitivity. Current ranges that can be sensed will be dependant on the physical parameters of the Bus Bars. There are three versions of the BBM’s that are configured to accommodate various widths and thicknesses of bus bars.
The Ametes Bus Bar Module Current Sensors are RoHS compliant.
