The Hawkeye 600 SPLIT-CORE Current Switch, Fixed Trip Point is a current-sensitive switching device that monitors current (amperage) in the conductor passing through it. Also, a change in amperage in the monitored conductor that crosses the switch (setpoint) threshold plus the hysteresis value causes the resistance of the FET status output to change state, similar to the action of a mechanical switch. In this model, the setpoint is fixed at 150 mA AC max. (200 mA for 50 Hz operation).
Besides, the status output is suitable for connection to building controllers or other appropriate data acquisition equipment operating at up to 30 volts. Furthermore, the Hawkeye 600 SPLIT-CORE requires no external power supply to generate its output.
For load currents greater than sensor maximum rating: Use a 5 Amp (H68xx series) current transformer (CT) as shown. This technique can be combined with wrapping (see below) when added range is desired for a low current load on a high current source
