TYPiCAL APPLiCATiONS • Variable speed drives • Uninterruptible power supplies • Welding inverters • Switched mode power supplies • Photovoltaics VAC CURRENT SENSOR SERiES VAC offers four current sensor series fur PCB mounting in which electronics and primary conductors are integrated. The VAC principle of the closed-loop sensor with magnetic probe as a zero field detector is distinguished by maximum precision of the current detection. The electronics of the new VAC current sensors are concentrated almost entirely in a new IC, which has been developed by VAC in conjunction with a leading semiconductor...

CROSS-REFERENCE LiST The sensors of the VAC type series can replace competitive products in many cases and generally offer superior performance with respect to accuracy, temperature drift and quality of the quiescent signal. The following table lists the available products with which the VAC sensors are electrically and mechanically compatible according to the data sheet comparison. Minor differences may still exist and therefore the customer is responsible for the actual suitability in their specific application. A large number of other competitive types can be replaced functionally with modifications...

Technical Appendix Functional Principle of VAC Current sensors Two major advantages of the compensation current sensors are their high linearity and their excellent dynamic properties. The current IP to be measured is magnetically coupled to the compensation current through a soft magnetic core. The magnetic flux of this core is measured by a magnetic probe and controlled to zero by the electronics, generating a compensation current IS in the compensation coil. This current and thus the output voltage across the burden resistor are proportional to the primary current IP. Primary Conductor Compensation...

VAC closed loop sensors offer high continuous and peak currents in a very compact form Types, like e.g. T60404-N4646-X764, detect maximum rms continuous currents up to 50 A and peak currents up to ± 150 A in a design with the dimensions 22.2 mm x 10.0 mm x 24.0 mm (L x W x H). Reflow-solderable types available The types T60404-N4646-X681 and -X682 (not included in this brochure) are electrically and mechanically compatible to the types T60404-N4646-X661 and -X662. They are however reflow-solderable and are therefore suitable for the automated processing e.g. on PCBs, which are exclusivly or predominantly...

TYPICAL PERFORMANCE Measured at VAC sensor with unipolar + 5 V supply and voltage output. T60404-N4646-X661, IPN=25 A, IPmax=± 85 A. TEMPERATURE RESPONSE OFFSET Low offset, almost temperature-independent, easily com pensatable (IP=IPN) TEMPERATURE RESPONSE GAIN Low gain-error, almost temperature-independent (IP=IPN) The output signal Vout (here expressed as the equivalent of the input current) follows the input signal IP with negligible delay and adapts quickly to the static value. Shown here for IP=25 A and IP = 80 A. ACTiVE CURRENT SENSORS FOR MAXiMUM ACCURACY I8«    15
