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

Voltage transformers are electrical components that are able to step down, step up the input voltage. They may also be used to isolate certain electrical circuits. They have been designed so that they are able to adjust the voltage to a suitable level. For instance, in making voltage measurements, a voltage transformer is used to lower the voltage of the system to the range that is suitable for the voltmeter that is used. These may also be used in conjuction with a current transformer for measuring power.
No matter what the size, the properties of mutual induction are relied upon by the voltage transformer. The input voltage causes a current to flow through the primary coils. This current has a certain motion, which goes past the core of a transformer. In so doing, it creates an electromotive force, which goes into a second set of transformer coils. Depending on the ratio of the number of coils of the primary and the secondary coils, the input voltage is transformed. The expected result is that the output voltage is within the range that is needed for a particular application.
Voltage transformers are different from the DCT-0024 current sensor, which has been designed to detect current. This particular sensor takes AC current as input and converts it to DC voltage.
Voltage transformers are usually found in a large electrical grid. This is because a grid requires varying voltage levels, which means that the voltage itself may need to be increased or decreased at different points in order for equipment linked to it properly. Power plants and substations use many voltage transformers, and they are most suitable for large scale, civic applications.
In such a large scale grid, metering and maintenance will often be needed. This is why a high voltage transformer will generally be utilized in order to bring the power of a grid down so that metering equipment can read it. The load on this type of equipment is then reduced in such a way that the overall capacity of the grid is not affected. While this is best explained with high voltage equipment, it can also be used in low voltage scenarios.
For instance, most households will have transformers to make sure that the different devices are able to run properly. These can be external devices, like the popular AC adapter, but they can also be internal. For instance, computer power supplies tend to have various components that achieve this as well.
For instance, you can use a low voltage transformer if you travel to a different country where the voltage is different. As such, there are both commercial and domestic voltage transformers available that are designed to make sure equipment can run properly.
