Current Switches monitor large loads.

Press Release Summary:



Combining current transformer and signal conditioner, ASXP-LS Current Switches monitor large machines for over- or under-load conditions, detect open discharge lines, and sense clogged filters. Split-core housing allows sensor to be installed over existing conductors, while 2.3 x 3.42 in. sensing aperture accommodates conductors and multiple wires per phase. Offered in 4 models with trip points from 200–1,600 A, switches feature electromechanical relay output and selectable Fail-Safe operation.



Original Press Release:



New ASXP-LS Current Switches from NK Technologies Take Complexity Out of Monitoring High-Current Loads



New switches deliver superior reliability, long-term durability and easy installation



SAN JOSE, CA – NK Technologies introduces ASXP-LS Current Switches – a combination current transformer and signal conditioner designed specifically for monitoring large loads. The ASXP-LS Current Switches feature electromechanical relay output, external power source, simple field setpoint adjustment and easy installation. The mechanical relay contact provides a trouble-free, durable alarm or interlock, improving safety and overall system reliability, while the selectable “Fail Safe” operation provides protection for critical loads.



ASXP-LS Current Switches are used to monitor large machines for over- or under-load conditions, detect open discharge lines and sense clogged filters. They can also monitor generators to shed non-critical loads when demand reaches a set level. Key features inlcude:

• Split-Core Housing: Allows sensor to be installed over existing conductors

• Easy Installation: Snap onto DIN rail or attach to back panel through sensor base

• Larger Sensing Aperture: Large window (2.3” w x 3.42” h) easily accommodates conductors and multiple wires per phase

• Electromechanical Relay Output: Use with AC or DC control circuits and for no-volt inputs (e.g. timing relay triggers)

• Load Start Delay: Adjustable delay allows large motors to start against high-inertia loads without tripping

• Wide Range: Four models available with trip points between 200 – 1600 amps

• Accepted Worldwide: Designed to meet UL, CUL, and CE requirements



Qualifying OEMs can request no-cost test and evaluation units. For application notes and a helpful white paper on current sensing, visit the NK Technologies website at www.nktechnologies.com.
