What's included with the Dent CT-R72-1310-U

  • Dent CT-R72-1310-U Current Transformer, 72"
  • Extending the Leads on Your DENT Current Transformer

    One of the most frequently asked questions in our tech support department is this: "Can I get CTs with longer leads or extend the leads myself? What's the maximum length for CT leads?".

    Standard lead length for a DENT current transformer is 3 meters (with a 7 meter option available for some models). Occasionally, because of electrical room layout or other factors, there is a requirement for longer leads on a current transformer. Therefore, extending the CT leads is necessary. The following is a brief overview of options for extending CT leads based on CT type. Note that the length recommendations listed below apply to PowerScout Series and ELITEpro XC instruments ONLY. To extend RoCoil leads for use with the TCA-5, please contact our experts to get advice specific to your application.

    Optimizing Performance from Rogowski Coil Current Transformers

    DENT Rogoski Coil - ITM Instruments
    WHAT IS A ROGOWSKI COIL?

    Rogowski coil, named after Walter Rogowski, is an electrical device for measuring alternating current (AC) or high-speed current pulses. It consists of a helical coil of wire with the lead from one end returning through the center of the coil to the other end so that both terminals are at the same end of the coil. The whole assembly is then wrapped around the straight conductor whose current is to be measured.

    Since the voltage that is induced in the coil is proportional to the rate of change of current in the straight conductor the output of the Rogowski coil is usually connected to an electrical (or electronic) integrator circuit in order to provide an output signal that is proportional to the current.

    The relationship between voltage and rate of change of current is explained in the following equation where "V" is voltage and "M" is a constant:

    DENT Rogoski Coil - ITM Instruments
    WHY CHOOSE A ROGOWSKI COIL CURRENT TRANSFORMER?
    Flexible Rogowski Coils, such as the DENT RoCoil, are designed for easy placement around cable bundles, large buss bars, or within tight breaker panels. Their design has several advantages over traditional split core current transformers including:

    1. Open-ended, flexible design allows it to be wrapped around a live conductor without disturbing it.
    2. Rogowski coils feature an air core rather than an iron core, which results in low inductance and faster response time to changing currents.
    3. Highly linear, even when subjected to large currents such as those used in electric power transmission, welding, or pulsed power applications.
    4. Largely immune to electromagnetic interference.
    HOW TO MAXIMIZE PERFORMANCE FROM A ROGOWSKI COIL CURRENT TRANSFORMER

    Rogowski coil accuracy is usually calibrated with the conductor centered in the CT window. In practice, however, the CT typically hangs on the conductor which can introduce measurement errors. Note that the error is greatest when the CT connector hangs on the conductor. The following diagram outlines the error introduced simply by moving the conductor to different positions within the opening of the Rogowski coil.

    DENT Rogoski Coil - ITM Instruments

    Best practice for Rogowski coil installation is to center the conductor as best as conditions allow. In addition, it's a good idea to keep any other conductors (those you do not wish to measure) at a minimum distance of 2x the diameter of the Rogowski coil CT.

    Also, keep in mind that although a Rogowski coil is ideal for large amperage loads, accuracy of the coil may be reduced on smaller loads (<20 A).
