- Current Sensor (Double range: first range 0-1000A, second range 0-100A,Hall effect sensor)
Emus current sensor is plug&play, but requires some configuration. Sensor has two hall-effect chips to provide two measurement ranges: 0-100A and 100-1000A. At high loads second range is used and on lower loads – more sensitive (0-100A) range, to get more accuracy. Typical accuracy for Emus Current Sensor is 0.5%. Each Current Sensor is calibrated at factory and calibration values are written on back of the sensor – these should be entered in the configuration of Emus Control Unit via Emus Control Panel software. Also make sure that Control Unit’s INPUT1..INPUT4 pins are mapped for Current Sensor.
The Current Sensor can be mounted either way, as it will simply show current with plus or minus sign. It can be inverted in configuration.
Hall-effect chips are sensitive to magnetic fields, so current sensor should be zeroed-out after install. Current sensor comes with 4 meter twisted-pair shielded cable and Control Unit connector. As with all low-signal cables, it is recommended to instal this cable far from power cables. If it is installed in a car for example, power and signal lines should go on different sides.
