Danisense announces new reduced size current transducer

Danisense has announced the launch of the DT series of ultra-stable, high precision (ppm class) fluxgate technology current transducers for isolated DC and AC current measurement up to 200Arms.

Benefiting from a considerable reduction in size with 60% less volume compared with the previous product generation, the devices feature a large frequency bandwidth of up to 2MHz and a primary current of ranging from 50A up to 200A.

DT series current transducers use Danisense’s Fluxgate, closed loop compensated technology with fixed excitation frequency and second harmonic zero flux detection for best-in-class accuracy and stability. The series offers linearity (better than 2 ppm), an industry standard DSUB 9-pin connection, a green diode for normal operation indication and a large aperture with a diameter of 20.7mm for cables and bus bars are further features of the components.

The DT series current transducers are intended for applications such as high precision power supplies for laboratories, accelerators and medical equipment where size is a key factor as designs for such power supplies are getting smaller and smaller to increase power density and reduce costs.

Size is also very important for the embedded power measurement application for cars where placing the transducers in a compact motor and inverters environment is always a challenge. The large frequency bandwidth of the DT series is another advantage for such power measurement applications.
