Current measurement

Postby Guest » Thu May 21, 2009 11:36 am


I'm researching power modules and motion control systems and am looking for a total system that will enable me to data log and analyse the current i/p & o/p. System needs to include suitable sensors with high sample rate and 16 bit resolution, preferably with USB connection to computer. Line voltage is 415v 3 phase with power module output up to 10 kW and peak amps of 20.6A. The motion control is for a five axis machine. Current range will be mA to Amps
Can you advise what is the best (and economical) equipment for this purpose.

Have you seen our current clamps (http://accessories.picotech.com/current_clamps.html)? They will output a small voltage that is proportional to the measured current. These can be connected to one of our oscilloscopes to give you the current waveform.
