Versatile new Residual Current Monitors from Danisense feature user-selectable settings and 70mm aperture

Fluxgate current measurement provides enhanced accuracy and stability

Key points:

  • Measure DC and AC residual currents from 30mA to 2Arms at up to 100kHz
  • Compliant with new norm IEC62020-1 saving time and periodic checks
  • Best-in-class stability and accuracy

 

Taastrup, Denmark, January 2021…Danisense, the leader in high-accuracy current sense transducers for demanding applications, has launched its highly versatile series RCMH070IB+ Residual Current Monitor (RCM). Suitable for monitoring the residual currents in electrical power systems without the need for fast system shutdown, the Type B/B+ RCM can measure DC and AC residual currents from 30mA to 2Arms at frequencies of up to 100kHz, suiting it to a wide range of industrial applications, loads and generation sources. Significantly, the new RCM is complaint with the updated norm IEC62020-1. This means that it can used for remote monitoring without the need to perform periodic onsite checks.

Featuring a 70mm primary cable / busbar aperture and user-selectable settings for frequency range, integration time and rated residual operating current, the RCMH070IB+ RCM product also features an analogue 4-20mA output. This represents the real-time True RMS (TRMS) value of the measured residual current for interfacing to, for example, a PLC. Additionally a free potential relay output (NO / NC) with user-selectable rated residual current limit can be used to provide a warning or even system shutdown if the TRMS residual current measurement exceeds the preset value. An LED provides a visual indication of the status of the relay output. Built-in test and external test controls are provided for regular testing of the RCM. The RCMH070IB+ requires only a single 24Vdc power supply.

Comments Loic Moreau, VP marketing at Danisense: “These new RCMs use our Fluxgate current measurement technology with fixed excitation frequency to provide enhanced accuracy and stability. Applications include condition-based monitoring of insulation health; high voltage insulation testing; mission-critical installations in data centres and medical facilities; DC power systems and high frequency loads.”

Celebrating the life and work of Hans Christian Ørsted

The discoverer of Electomagnetism

 

2020 marks the 200th anniversary of the discovery of electromagnetism by Hans Christian Ørsted (14/08/1777 – 09/03/1851), the Danish physicist and chemist who found that electric currents create magnetic fields. In 1820, Ørsted (commonly spelled Oersted) published a paper detailing that a compass needle was deflected from magnetic north by the presence of an electric current. Later findings the same year showed that an electric current produces a circular magnetic field as it flows through a wire.

 

Acknowledging Ørsted’s pioneering work and discoveries in the field of electromagnetism, Oersted's law and the Oersted, the unit of magnetic induction (Oe) are named after him. Ørsted was awarded the Copley Medal by the Royal Society of London, and a grant of 3,000 francs by the French Academy for his work. In later years he was elected a foreign member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences (1822) and a Foreign Honorary Member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (1849). In 1829, Ørsted founded what would become the Technical University of Denmark (DTU).

 

Many everyday items are only possible because of electromagnetism. Imagine a world without electric motors, microphones, loudspeakers, and transformers…and that’s just the start.

 

Electromagetism is – of course – also fundamental to the principles of operation for the current sense transducer. Historically, engineers have been very creative when it comes to measuring current. However, when the application requires very high accuracy – such as power analysers, MRI scanners and other medical equipment, or power supplies used in particle accelerators in large scientific research establishments such as CERN, zero-flux technology, also called ‘fluxgate’, is accepted as the best solution. This approach uses the magnetic field generated by the circulation of the current.

 

At Danisense, we have refined and developed ‘fluxgate’, including the use of a closed loop which balances opposing magnetic fields, so eliminating offset and linearity issues. Using this combination of techniques, it is possible to achieve extremely accurate results even in harsh environments, and our products deliver best-in-class stability and accuracy.

 

We are therefore proud to celebrate our fellow countryman’s achievements, and we owe Ørsted a great debt of gratitude. Danisense is indeed thankful to be standing on the shoulders of such a giant.
