The need to measure electricity usage has become very important to factories. The proposed EPA regulations will soon become law and make power much more expensive, every year for the foreseeable future. Likewise, the efficient operation of electrical machinery becomes more important since poor efficiency equals more electricity.
A major problem for existing installations, especially large units, which currently do not have current measurement real time is taking the machine and manufacturing line out of service to install current transducers. The lost output is usually far more costly than the new installation.
NK Technologies has solved this problem with the introduction of the AT/ATR-LS current transducer. This easy to install split core design combines the transducer and signal conditioner in a single package.
