High Current Sensor - CI-6740

Sorry, this product has been discontinued.

Suggested Replacement(s) are:


Measure the transient or steady state current at any point in a circuit. The High Current Sensor is ideal for circuits in which the current exceeds 1 Amp. Instead of a sensing resistor, the High Current Sensor features a Hall Effect chip. Therefore, the sensor has a negligible internal resistance and will not influence the current measurements from the circuit.

The sensor includes a 10 Amp fuse which can be easily replaced.

Typical Applications:

  • Measure the current through PASCO coils
  • Determine the output from the Hand Crank Generator


Measurable Current Range
  • ±10 A
Measurement Resolution
  • 5 mA
Maximum circuit Voltage
  • ±30 V
Measurement Accuracy
  • Approximately 0.5 %
Frequency Response
  • DC - 16 kHz
