A loop-powered, linear output current transducer provides an output that is directly proportional to the rms alternating current passing through its toroidal sensor. TCSA Series devices provide 4- to 20-mA output over a 10 to 30V dc supply range. Four monitoring ranges are available: 0 to 5, 0 to 10, 0 to 20, and 0 to 50A.
