VTU Series AC/DC Voltage Transducer


VTU SERIES:

High Voltage DC/AC Voltage Transducer

The VTU series of voltage transducers provide very high accuracy and safety in a panel or DIN rail mounted housing. One sensor design can measure DC or AC circuit voltages to 1200 volts, and produce an analog signal directly proportional to the voltage connected.
vtu-voltage-transducer-400x383A very valuable tool to spot issues with power generation (conventional and alternative sources) like brown outs and
phase loss. The voltage will be present on the line side of a disconnect even when the breaker or switch is open. Continue reading VTU Series AC/DC Voltage Transducer

Motor Monitoring Applications – NK Technologies

Electric motors are found extensively in both the manufacturing and processing industries. Both AC and DC powered motors are used to drive pumps, fans, conveyors and a broad range of specialized equipment. There are many types of motors designed for many different applications, however all require electrical current in order to generate the magnetic fields that are necessary to create rotation. By measuring this current useful information can be made available regarding the status of the motor and the equipment that is connected to it. This may be as basic as independently verifying the run status of the motor or in conjunction with a PLC, for example, to protect a pump against dry run. Thus current may be used to both monitor and protect motors and motor-driven equipment.

Detecting Very Low DC Current Levels

DS1 – DC Current Sensor in a Compact, One-Piece Design for Detecting Very Low DC Current Levels.

DC-Interlock-DS1

The DS1 DC current switch is smaller than other DC current sensors and simpler to use. It is non-adjustable so the output closes when there is current and opens with there is no current. It uses the same circuit voltage to power the sensor as the circuit being controlled so it is easier to install than other sensors.

The DS1 current sensor can be powered by any DC voltage between 10 and 28 volts, and the solid state “contact” closes with a minimum of 0.75 amps DC through the sensing window. The contact can control a DC load up to one amp, up to 30 VDC.
