Understanding Current Sensing

Current sensing is used to measure the flow of electricity that passes through a point. Specifically, it measures how much current is flowing in a wire. Commonly used for circuit protection and controlling, it’s also intended for monitoring electricity and enhancing its performance.

Understanding AC and DC Current Transformers

When your company needs to monitor electrical usage, one of the more accurate means to do so is to use current transformers. Working for both alternate current and direct current, they provide a way to measure the high voltage currents that are usually used by industrial and commercial firms; they do this by converting the current into a much lower value so it can be measured safely and easily. There are three types of current transformers on the market.

Measuring Currents in Data Center Mains

Running a data center can be tough business. If the investment in equipment doesn’t put a massive dent in your budget, year-to-year operations costs certainly might as your equipment draws immense amounts of power from your suppliers.

Types of Current Transformers

A current transformer is a basic piece of electrical equipment that is designed with two windings or coils. The primary winding takes in an electrical current from a source and transforms it into an alternating current as it passes through the second winding. Essentially, there are three main types of current transformers according to the functions of its construction:
