Top Features of the Magnelab RCT-1800 Rogowski Coil
The Magnelab RCT-1800 is a type of flexible Rogowski coil current sensor measuring AC current up to 5,000 amps. It provides output of 0.333 volt AC at rated current. It has an 18″ length and 6″ diameter and is extremely flexible.
The flexible Rogowski coil opens at the connector junction and may be installed on a bus bar or existing cable in a matter of seconds. The RCT-1800-000 comes without an integrator and produces 70 mV for every 1000 A on the primary conductor, when operating at 60 Hz (at 50 Hz the output is 58.33 mV per 1000 A). See the RCT-1800-250 through RCT-1800-3000 to purchase the Rogowski coil with an integrator.
For areas with limited space, you may purchase a different shaped version of the RCT-1800, also known as a ‘tear drop’ because of its shape. It may also be purchased with or without an integrator. You may buy the coils individually, or as part of the RCS-1800 three-phase flexible AC current sensor system that integrates multiple coils with an output of 0.333 volt AC.
Most Common Uses
The linearity accuracy of the RCT-1800 is 1%. It is important to know your measuring needs so that you include the right integrator. The coil itself does not require an external power supply; however, the integrator requires between 12 and 30V AC or DC. This may be purchased from Magnelab as a separate option. If you intend to use your RCT-1800 in eGauge, Measurlogic or Veris power meters, you will not need an integrator since these meters have a built-in integrator designed to work with Magnelab coils. This device is most commonly used in power meters, energy sub meters, condition monitoring, power quality monitoring and distributed measurement systems. It is fully CE and RoHS compliant, as well as meeting CE and ISO standards. It is made in the USA.
