DIGITAL/INDUCTIVE CURRENT SENSORS:


    CSDA Series Benefits:


    Single digital (TTL logic level, open collector) output that will sink 20 mA of output current. Provides logic level output that changes from Vcc to 0.4 V when sensed current exceeds the operate point. Will not be damaged by overcurrent in the sensed conductor. Potential applications include variable speed drives, overcurrent protection, ground fault detectors, current feedback control systems, robotics, UPS and telecommunication power supplies, welding power supplies, battery management systems, and wattmeters.

  1. CSDA Series - Features:
    1. Open collector output, Digital output, ac or dc currents, Thru-hole design,
    2. Output voltage isolation from input, Minimum energy dissipation,
    3. Maximum current limited only by conductor size,
    4. Enhanced accuracy, lowcost sensing, RoHS compliant.




  2. Common Sense Global leadership:


    Honeywell S&C offers linear (analog) open loop, digital, or closed-loop current sensors. When any of these sensors detect predetermined signals, the system then performs the designated task. For instance, the digital signal’s logic level output may sound an alarm, start a motor, or open a valve. The linear signal duplicates the waveform often ideal for feedback elements to control a motor, or regulate machine function. And Honeywell’s new closed-loop current sensor with magnetoresistive (MR) technology offers amazing offset drift performance over a wide temperature range with almost no thermal drift, for enhanced accuracy. For proven engineering expertise, component dependability, and global support, trust Honeywell S&C.
