High Current Sensor - CI-6740

CI6740_MAIN.jpg

Overview

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
