LEM has introduced the LA 306-S, a panel-mounted current transducer for the measurement of currents up to 400 ARMS (@ +70°C) or 300 ARMS (@ +85°C). The unit offers the high performance of a closed-loop current transducer at a very competitive price.
The new transducer is only 56mm high. It features a wide maximum bandwidth of DC to 50kHz and an overall accuracy of better than 0.7 per cent at the primary nominal RMS current. Typical linearity error is ±0.1 per cent at nominal current and the maximum offset temperature drift is 500 microamps from -40 to +85˚C. The closed-loop Hall-effect technology results in no insertion losses and a fast response time of less than 1 microsecond.
The transducer’s aperture accepts busbars up to 13 x 30mm. Specified with 2000 turns as standard, it is also available with 5000, 4000 or 3000 turns on request. A Molex 5045 plug is offered as standard for the secondary connections, to allow quick installation. A Molex series 70543 connector can be specified for a more robust connection.
With an isolation test voltage of 6kVRMS/50Hz/1min, the transducer complies with the EN50178 industrial standard. All materials used satisfy UL94-V0. The LA 306-S is CE marked and is supplied with a five-year warranty, as are all LEM industrial products.
Come and see us at PCIM Hall 12.402 where you can find out more about these and other LEM products. We will also be presenting a conference paper on Thursday 24 May at 1400 hrs - A transducer at the limits of current measurement accuracy.LEM
