A new current monitor capable of measuring narrow current pulse of several hundred kA and AC currents up to 2,000 ARMS with a 3 dB bandwidth of 0.1 Hz to 100 kHz is introduced by Ion Physics Corporation, IPC, of Fremont, NH. This IPC current monitor, also referred as current transformer or current sensor, is a transformer with a one turn primary, internally terminated in a low inductance impedance network to convert the current signal to a voltage signal. This model has the designation…

FREMONT, NH June 22, 2009: A wide band current transformer with a high ampere-second rating at a sensitivity of 0.1V/A and a risetime of 35 nanoseconds has been introduced by Ion Physics Corporation, IPC, of Fremont New Hampshire. Current transformers, CTs, also known as current monitors or current probes, have difficulty measuring pulses of high electrical current and long duration due to core saturation. While saturation does not damage the device or inhibit its re-use after the current is…

A wide band current monitor with a high sensitivity of 1V/A and excellent high and low frequency response is being introduced by Ion Physics Corporation of Fremont, New Hampshire. The IPC Current Transformer model CM-100-6L measures AC and pulsed currents. By placing the monitor around the current carrying conductor it senses the magnetic field associated with the current and accurately measures the current. No physical contact to the current carrying conductor is required, eliminating…

A new wide band current monitor with high current capability that can measure RMS currents up to 600A with a 0.01V/A sensitivity is being introduced by Ion Physics Corporation of Fremont, New Hampshire. The IPC Current Transformer model CM-1-BS4 monitors AC and pulse currents without physically contacting the conductor, eliminating ground loops and interface noise. The monitor has a maximum droop of 0.125% per millisecond and a useable risetime of 85 nanoseconds. The maximum saturation value…

NEED TO MEASURE WEAK CURRENTS IN A NOISY ENVIRONMENT? A new high frequency differential current detector that features two output signals with 180° phase shift is being introduced by Ion Physics Corporation of Fremont, New Hampshire. When small electrical signals have to be carried over an extended distance, the signal may be greatly distorted by electrical noise. IPC’s PPD-302 differential current detector reduces this problem by producing two output voltages with a 180° phase shift…
