Comment fabriquer une pince amperemetrique? Non-Invasive Current Sensor - 30A - SEN-11005. Description: This non-invasive current sensor (also known as a "split core current transformer") can be clamped around the supply line of an electrical load to tell you how much current is passing through it.

Non-Invasive Current Sensor - 30A - SEN-11005

It does this by acting as an inductor and responding to the magnetic field around a current-carrying conductor. By reading the amount of current being produced by the coil, you can calculate how much current is passing through the conductor. This particular current sensor will measure a load up to 30 Amps which makes it great for building your own energy monitor to keep your power usage down, or even building an over-current protection device for an AC load. How to build an arduino energy monitor. Including voltage measurement via AC-AC voltage adapter and current measurement via a CT sensor.

How to build an arduino energy monitor

This guide details how to build a simple electricity energy monitor on that can be used to measure how much electrical energy you use in your home. It measures voltage with an AC to AC power adapter and current with a clip on CT sensor, making the setup quite safe as no high voltage work is needed. Untitled. Non-invasive AC Current Sensor (100A max) [THM105C4B] - $8.05. Arduino - AC current sensor. Arduino - AC current sensor.
