New DT-BB Series DC Current Transducer is Offered in Split-Core Case

Press Release Summary:

The DT-BB Series DC Current Transducer is rated to measure DC current at working voltage to 1500 VDC. The device features 4–20 mA unipolar or 4–12–20 mA bipolar, ± 5 or ± 10 VDC bidirectional, and 0–5/10 VDC unipolar or 0–2.5–5 VDC or 0–5–10 VDC bipolar outputs. It is suitable for measuring PV solar power and monitoring DC motor that include sensing clogged filters or blocked intake to DC-driven pumps or identifying over current conditions before the machine fails.


Original Press Release:

NK Technologies Introduces DT-BB Series DC Current Transducer with New Features – Designed to Measure up to 1.5KV, Split-core to 400 A

SAN JOSE, CA – January 2019 – NK Technologies (www.nktechnologies.com) introduces the DT-BB DC Current Transducer. The innovative design allows a split-core transducer to be installed over existing bus bars or wire, and to be easily mounted on a panel or DIN rail. The DT-BB is rated to measure DC current at working voltage to 1500 VDC. The power supply and output signal wires are connected to the sensor with a terminal block, which plugs into the header on top of the sensor. The current sensing components and the signal conditioning are housed in a single case, effectively reducing installation time and improving both accuracy and safety.

Applications include measuring PV solar power produced by connected panels and DC motor monitoring such as identifying over current conditions before a machine fails and sensing clogged filters or blocked intake to DC-driven pumps.

DT-BB Current Transducer highlights include:

  • Standard signal output:
  • 4–20 mA unipolar or 4–12–20 mA bipolar output
  • 0–5/10 VDC unipolar or 0–2.5–5 VDC or 0–5–10 VDC bipolar output
  • +/-5 or +/-10 VDC bidirectional output also available
  • Exterrnally powered: Low voltage 24 VAC/DC is safe and readily available
  • Split-core case: Sensing window with ample space for bus bar, single or multiple conductors
  • Easy installation: Attach to a bus assembly, snap onto DIN rail (using available adapters), or attach with screws to a panel for secure mounting using the removable mounting base.
  • Compatibility with most automation and control systems
