Split Core Current Transformers

A current transformer is a device which is used to produce an alternating current in its secondary winding, which is proportional to the AC current in its primary winding. This device is mainly used when a current or voltage is too high to measure directly.
 
The split core current transformer is designed for electrical metering applications specifically designed to be installed around primary current-carrying conductors without disconnecting wires or breaking the monitoring circuit. These split core current transformers are the best solution for applications in energy measurement and management. This CT are specially designed for easy installation in applications like portable metering.

ABB AND SOCOMEC SPLIT CORE CURRENT TRANSFORMERS  

 
IPD offers ABB and SOCOMEC Split core current transformers, with a current ratio of up to 5000/5 and aperture of up to 85×22mm. In most applications, measurement accuracy directly affects the efficiency of an overall system. The accuracy of the power calculation depends on the accuracy of the current sensors. A class 1 power meter requires current sensors with accuracy much better than 1%, SOCOMEC’s T0816 and ABB’s CTs have an accuracy class of 0.5 thus ensuring efficient measurement.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      Selection criteria: 

      • Accuracy - The accuracy of the power calculation relies on the accuracy of the current sensors 
      • Drift - The drift of a sensor is related to the sustainability of a reading over time. 
      • Linearity - The linearity of the sensor refers to the stability of its characteristics within the full operating mode. 
      • Phase shift 
      • Integration 

      The accuracy of the power calculation depends on the accuracy of the current sensors. A class 1 power meter requires current sensors with accuracy much better than 1%, SOCOMEC’s T0816 and ABB’s CTs have an accuracy class of 0.5 thus ensuring efficient measurement. 

      Split core lets you to directly monitor AC current without breaking or interrupting supply. It is easy to remotely monitor devices that are placed in inaccessible or harsh surroundings. They are easy to install and are snapped over pre-existing wires thus proving ideal for applications requiring portable electricity monitoring devices. 

      Split core current transformers are used in a wide range of applications such as sub-metering, power factor correction devices, metering in electrical energy meters, active power filter, power measurement device for PLC, sensing overload current, ground fault detection, digital fault recorder, inverters for solar and wind turbine systems, electrical testing, equipment, and relay protection and current, power, energy monitoring devices.
