3 Replies and 877 Views Is Anyone using a home energy monitoring system?  877  3 Started by  Joe Clark Hello, I am doing a fairly large project with all new hvac as well as building a home theater and my energy consumption has always been through the roof. I average 2,000 KWH a month already and my new additions may cause it to increase. I had an electrician laying out wires tell me I have some type of electrical problem, because 2,000 KWH is way too much for what I am using. He said I should install an electrical monitoring system to figure out where the power is going. I have see a bunch ...

0 Replies and 1307 Views Circuit for Measuring RMS Current Value using CR3110  1307  0 Started by  Daniel Blair I am currently using the precision rectifier circuit found in the 'Precision Rectifier Circuit for CT Signal Conditioning' app note. I am using this in my application to monitor motor current using a CR3110-3000 current transformer across a 7.5 ohm burden resistor. I now need to monitor current to non-linear loads (e.g., from a VFD) and hence need to get a true RMS value. Is there a similar circuit recommendation for non linear applications that allows me to still use the same CT

1 Replies and 1705 Views Measuring AC Voltage with CR4850-500  1705  1 Started by  Kristin Chew Hi, I would like to ask more advise on how to verify the output of the Voltage Transducer CR4850-500 The datasheet stated that the DC output is proportional to the AC voltage input. My question is: 1. The output from pin 7-9 (L1-N, L2-N, L3-N) is in DC or AC 2. The output value is giving out 0-5 VDC after measuring the input VAC So, for example if my max voltage is 240 VAC, the transducer will output 5VDC Is there any graph showing the linearity of the input and output voltages ...

2 Replies and 2109 Views DC Current Direction Through CT  2109  2 Started by  Joseph Hafich Building a few panels using your CR5220 to measure DC current from a battery charger to the battery positive terminal, and then output a 4-20 ma reference for metering. I could power up and test to determine, but thought I might ask. Wire from the battery charger through () on the window then to the battery Current will generally flow from the charger to the battery (hopefully). Thanks

1 Replies and 1631 Views DC Immune  1631  1 Started by  Randy Smith I've got a DC load design that I'm adding an AC voltage to. The AC doesn't cross zero so I have to add a DC offset. I need to measure total current and the CT I'm using just isn't delivering the correct AC value. I'm convinced the DC component of the signal is skewing the RMS value somehow. I see that CR makes CTs that are DC immune which is exactly what I need. Question is, in a nutshell how does that work Does the CT simply ignore the DC component somehow Thank you, Randy

1 Replies and 2358 Views measure of differential current  2358  1 Started by  martino bonacossa Hello, I have a question I'd like to submit. I'm trying to achieve a measure of differential current. I'm using a CR8348-2000 in which I inserted into the hole in both phases (phase and neutral). As the load resistance across the CR will use a 90.9k, then enter a LTC1967 and from there into a PIC. The scheme is in fact the one in the LTC1967 data sheet ( on page 26. The problem is the response time. thanks for your cooperation and sorry for ...

1 Replies and 2338 Views CR5210-50  2338  1 Started by  Robert Batta Hi, I have a CR5210-50 that I am using to measure DC load on a 12v distribution panel. I've wired the CT as drawn in the instruction, supplied 24vdc power, but the readings I am getting do not match the measured load: The amp readings below were taken is a separate amp meter and compared it to the voltage output on the CT: 2.86A - 2.35volts 9.9A - 2.08volts 11.4A - 201volts 12.9A - 1.96volts 13.8A - 1.03volts I feel like I'm missing something obvious.

The inputs to my data acquisition system are /-10V.

I have been using a product from Ubiquiti Called MFI to monitor current on a few AC motors, among other things. The Mport they sell requires a 0 to 2 volt DC input from a sensor. The sensor they have now is 100A rated and not large enough to clamp over the 400 A entrance cables. Looking for any recommendations of products found here. It's 2 lines .

5 Replies and 6466 Views Just need to detect run state of 3phase motor  6466  5 Started by  joe baird I need to detect the run state (on/off) of a three phase motor with a microprocessor with pins rated at 3.3v max. I have a slight preference for a digital signal but an analog signal is fine if it is 0-3.3v with some threshold meaning on. What is the simplest and most economical (I need many of these) way to do this with a CR product - a split core device would be great but I can make do with a solid core. Thanks!
