Magnelab offers a large array of products for power monitoring. They offer several styles of AC current sensor or DC current sensor including models that feature a Rogowski coil, split-core and solid core design. Magnelab has a current sensor to suit almost any need.
Founded in Boulder, CO, in 1968 by Carl Forsberg, our company first started as ‘Magnetek’. We then manufactured simple products like antenna coils, but quickly expanded into more complex products, including military switching components. Our company was taken over by the Solomon Corporation in 1995. Soloman was a leading developer for the electrical industries and utilities, creating regulators, enclosers and transformers. When Magnelab was purchased by them, we moved to our Longmont, CO, facility, just north of the city of Denver. Currently, we are owned by Miami, FL based company Manutech. They have been in the field of designing and manufacturing magnetics components for nearly half a century and some 350 people are proud to be employed by them in their offshore facility.Today we create products that service the energy monitoring industry by delivering a number of products, including our precision current transformers. This line of products includes the Rogowski flexible CT options, the split core current sensors (opening type), the toroidal current sensors (non-opening type) and various precision potential transformers.
Our goal is to offer the highest quality products as quickly as possible for our customers, regardless of the volume of their order and we always make sure our pricing is highly competitive. Because we work together with an offshore company, we have very low carbon costs. In fact, these are the lowest in all of the Western hemisphere. As a result, no other supplier is truly able to compete with our prices.
Our company is fully ISO 9001:2008 certified. This proves the quality of our products and the fact that we are committed to improvement. All our products, from our electrical transformer to our flyback transformer and from our step down transformer to our control transformer, all meet those same ISO certifications.
Our manufacturing and engineering organization is fully staffed. This allows us to come up with innovative designs, such as our isolation transformer and our 24v transformer. We can also build from print, or design completely new devices as per specifications. This is, for instance, how we developed our low voltage transformer and our high voltage transformer, which have both proven to be very popular. Our goal is to build a long lasting professional relationship with our customers, which means that if they have specific needs they want to apply to a standard power transformer or to the RCT-350T flexible AC current sensor, for instance, we will do our best to achieve that.
We offer a huge selection of current sensors, current transformers, flexible core coils (Rogowski), split-core current transformers and more. Whatever you need to get the job done right, we have what you require and will always go that extra mile. Show Less
Magnelab is a global leader in current transducers. Their split core current transformer, for instance, is used in a variety of industries all over the world and is generally considered to be the most effective device of its kind. For Magnelab, the goal is to make sure any job can be completed. As a result, the catalog of product is becoming very large, but it is easy to filter based on products, types or specifications. Additionally, if a product does not seem to be available, you can contact Magnelab for advice.
Magnelab also makes it possible for many of the products to be customized. For instance, people have asked for custom connector installation, longer lead lengths and unique voltage output. This is all possible in consultation.
Magnalab current transducers come in different product ranges so that they can measure universal currents. You can pick adjustable devices that allow you to precisely map an up to 55A small measuring range, or one that can measure far higher currents, up to 600A, such as the HCT-0036 Hall effect split core current transducer. Doing so gives you a number of different advantages.
First of all, thanks to RMS value measurement, the devices are suitable for every type of waveform. Secondly, you will be able to enjoy lossless current measurement and not have to worry about shunt. This can be achieved thanks to a Hall sensor. Furthermore, you can perfectly map the 55 A measuring range thanks to upper and lower limits that you can program using software. If there is a threshold value over- or under-range, you can also limit the value alarm up to 55 A. This can be achieved via transistor or relay output. You can also enjoy up to 600 A distributed current measurement by using more compact devices that come with a range of different mounting options. Best of all, the three way electrical isolation means that you are effectively protected against disturbances.
Current Transducers up to 55 A AC/DC
The Magnelab current transducers can be change to suit your personal requirements. They come with a standardized input signal, which is either 1 or 5 A, but you can infinitely adjust the measuring range as well. This can be achieved through software. You can map the entire range that you want to measure over the full output signal range. This way, the resolution of the measured values is extremely accurate.
You can also quickly configure the devices thanks to the DIP switches, which are found on the housing. The software allows you to set other beneficial device functions. When you order your transducers, they are pre-configured to your specifications.
Current Transducers up to 600 A AC/DC
These current transducers are universal and they are perfect for the measurement of a high current at any type of waveform, up to 600 A AC/DC. A range of Magnelab devices are available that are sorted by graded measuring ranges. They also have different voltage or current output. All are very easy to wire and connect.
