ESDEMC Technology is releasing a line of current transformers with the latest releases being the CT-002-S and CT-002-T series current monitors. These current transformers are designed to measure current transients in applications similar to those of the Tektronix CT current transformers. With a wider bandwidth and higher saturation point, ESDEMC’s current monitors can be used in even higher and lower-frequency applications as well as higher-current applications. The CT-002-S series transformers use SMA connections and allow for higher-frequency applications than the through-hole transformers of the CT-002-T series. Currently, the CT-002-S series consists of the CT-002-0p5 and the CT-002-0p2. The CT-002-T series consists of the CT-002-T-0p5.
Below is a table comparing ESDEMC’s current transformers to the competing Tektronix current transformers.
|Bandwidth||Transfer Impedance||Current-Time Product|
|ESDEMC CT-002-S-0p2||400 Hz – 2 GHz||0.2 V/A||200 A-µs|
|ESDEMC CT-002-S-0p5||1 kHz – 4 GHz||0.5 V/A||75 A-µs|
|ESDEMC CT-002-T-0p5||1 kHz – 2 GHz||0.5 V/A||75 A-µs|
|Company T Model 1||25 kHz – 1 GHz||5.0 V/A||1 A-µs|
|Company T Model 2||1.2 kHz – 200 MHz||1.0 V/A||50 A-µs|
It should be noted that ESDEMC can customize current monitors to meet specific specifications.
