PACT RCP current transformer for retrofitting  

Fast installation in a confined space: PACT RCP current transformer

The Phoenix Contact PACT RCP current transformers for retrofitting offer a time-saving and space-saving alternative to split core current transformers.

Expensive downtimes are reduced to a minimum as system parts do not have to be removed for installation. The measuring system consists of a Rogowski coil and a retrofitted measuring transducer. The flexible measuring coil can be fitted around the conductor, even where space is limited. Unlike with split core current transformers, the current strength does not affect the size and weight of the coil form. Alternating currents of up to 4000 A can be acquired using a single handy coil type. Dangerous open circuit voltages, which could damage the transformer or a pose a risk to personnel, cannot occur. The measuring transducer transforms the output signal from the Rogowski coil into a typical secondary current for further processing as supplied by a standard current transformer. The signal is output with phase accuracy over a frequency range from 10 to 5000 Hz.
