High current measurements made easy: Yokogawa WT5000 Precision Power Analyzer Current Sensor Element
Monday, 7 June 2021
While many power measurement devices are equipped to measure voltage, measuring current requires special hardware considerations that must account for low current resistance, low inductance, and minimum impact of phase shift while minimizing overall heat dissipation. Additionally, applications such as large motors, #electricvehicle battery cells, and #renewableenergy power management often require measuring currents that are higher than what is measurable by standard devices.
To accommodate this need, Yokogawa Test&Measurement has designed a new current sensor module for the WT5000 Precision Power Analyzer that replaces traditional current inputs. It is built with a sensor input terminal with integrated ±15V DC power supply, eliminating the need for an external power source and simplifying setup for high-current measurements.
Founded in 1915, Yokogawa engages in broad-ranging activities in the areas of measurement, control, and information. The industrial automation business provides vital products, services, and solutions to a diverse range of process industries including oil, chemicals, natural gas, power, iron and steel, and pulp and paper.
