Typical Applications
The M100 series current transducers are designed to measure A.C. current in single and three phase systems. They convert the A.C. signal to a D.C. output that is directly proportional to the input signal.
The M100-AA1 and M100-AA3 are self powered (no auxiliary required), average sensing, RMS calibrated current transducers with either a milli-amp or voltage output.
The M100-AL1 and M100-AL3 are average sensing, RMS calibrated, live zero current transducers. Auxiliary is required to provide power to enable a 4mA output signal when the input poes to zero.
The M100-AR1 is a true RMS sensing, RMS calibrated transducer allowing  the measurement of distorted waveforms of up to 9th harmonic with a crest factor of 5. The M100-AR1 is typically used in current measurement where a distorted waveform is common such as thyristor drives.
The above units are used to measure current in energy management systems, switchboards, generator and telemetery controls.
Isolation of 4kV is provided between the input and output, allowing the output to be fed to conventional analogue meters, digital meters, PLC, and computer systems.
