The SC Series current switch monitors line current for electrical loads such as pumps, conveyors, lighting, heaters or fans and closes the output contacts when the trip point is exceeded. The SC-GnG-200 has a factory set trip point of 2 Amps to provide Go/No Go status operation.

The SC-610-200 has a trip setpoint that is adjustable between 2 to 200 Amps by rotating the adjustment potentiometer. The sensor requires no external power as it is totally powered by induction from the AC line being monitored. The switch output is normally open and when the input current exceeds the trip setpoint the switch closes to provide an on/off digital signal to the controller.

Features:-

  • Split Core
  • Go/No Go or Field Adjustable Models
  • Setpoint Adjustment Potentiometer (CS-610-200)
  • Up to 200 amps Input Current
  • Self-powered

Choosing the Right Current Switch:-

SyxthSense offers two types of solid-state switches in our Current Switch lineup – The Mosfet which is used in the 610/GNG series, and the Triac, used in the CS325 series. To determine which type of switch to use, you need to know what type of load the switch will be used with.

  • Is the load AC or DC?
  • Is the load looking for a dry (relay) contact ?
  • How much voltage and current will the load draw?

If the load is a DC load then you will need the Mosfet switch. The Triac will not switch a DC load. However, both the Mosfet and the Triac will switch an AC load. If the load is looking for a dry contact then you will need the Mosfet switch. There is very little current leakage with this switch as compared to the Triac. If the load is less than 30 volts AC or 40 volts DC and less than 500 mA your best choice is the Mosfet. If the load is 120/240 volts AC and less than 1 amp then choose the Triac version i.e. CS-325.
