Transducers Measure -90 to +90 Phase Differences

CR Magnetics, Inc. has introduced a new series of power factor transducers specifically designed to sense the phase angle difference between AC current and voltage signals. The new CR6300 series of power factor transducers allow correcting of power factors to save on utility energy costs. They will perform in a wide variety of applications including motor loading, measure timing and correcting power factor.

The new CR Magnetics CR6300 series power factor transducers are available in three basic model styles: CR6310-500V - 0-5 VDC output, CR6311-500V - 0-10 VDC output, and CR6320-500V - 4-20 mADC output. Custom styles can be provided.

Features include the ability to measure -90 to +90 phase differences. Bandwidth is 5 kHz and input ranges can be extended using CTs and PTs. Outputs are direct to data acquisition, PLCs, display and computer systems.

The new power factor transducers have window openings to accommodate current carrying wires up to 0.26" dia. They offer up to 500 V input of voltage and up to 25 A of current. The units are powered by a single 24 VDC power supply. Package size is 3.26" L. x 1.42"W. x 2.99" H. They can be mounted on 35 mm DIN rails or surface panels.
