SINERGY Flexclamp AC Current Transducer
The SINERGY Flexclamp, flexible AC current transducers cover a wide range of sizes, current ranges and output levels to standard or OEM specifications. SINERGY has pioneered the development of air cored clip-on and flexible Rogowski CT’s and have been in volume production since 1986. Superior construction techniques ensure wide dynamic range and bandwidth, low phase error and true rms current, AC or DC voltage outputs facilitate accurate kWh measurement.
Flexclamp Current Transducers
Fkexclamp CT’s work perfectly with:-
- Portable Energy Monitors
- Sub-metering systems
- Harmonic analysers
- Bench top instrumentation
Flexeclamp transducers have many advantages over iron cored CT’s, offering minimal weight and mass and the ability to clip round all types of conductors. Standard Sinergy Flexeclamps
are unique in having a hybrid integrator/buffer integrated into the clip assembly, which is digitally calibrated and consumes less than 1mA that can often be derived from the power supply of the host. At an operational level the absence of an iron core means that the Flexeclamp does not store any energy, has no hysteresis or turns ratio errors and as such cannot saturate, which means a Flexeclamp transducer cannot be damaged by overload conditions and does not generate an open circuit secondary shock potential.
The length of a Flexeclamp should be chosen to match, as far as is practical, the circumference or the periphery of the conductor.
This ensures that the conductor occupies the most favourable position centred within the loop of the coil.
Excessive coil length can be a safety hazard in confined areas.
Stretching or twisting can cause coil damage.
IP rating should be chosen to match the maximum current expected.
