The CS15 is a modified version of the CS10 Current Transducer developed specifically for our CR200(X)-series dataloggers. It monitors ac current along an electrical wire for the range of 0.15 A to 125 A.Read More
The CS15 detects the ac current along an electrical wire using the magnetic field that is generated by that current. It is external to the wire jacket and has no direct electrical connection to the system. This transducer outputs a millivolt signal that our CR200(X)-series dataloggers can directly measure.
The CS15 can be used for motor or generator load condition monitoring, efficiency studies, intermittent fault detection, and rough submetering.
The CS15 was designed specifically for the CR200(X)-series dataloggers. It is measured with the VoltSE instruction. The measurement is generally taken repeatedly inside a measurement loop, then the RMS (root-mean-square) value is determined.

Not directly. If the CS15-L is connected to a CR200(X) datalogger, the data logger can take the ac measurement and control a solid-state relay based on some threshold within the data logger program. The solid-state relay can then control other relays, solenoids, or motor starters. (Use of a solid-state relay is preferred because the data logger can trigger it with a small 5 Vdc mA signal.) For more information, see the “Measurement and Control Peripherals” section of the operator’s manual.
