Standex Electronics manufactures Rogowski coils and modules in custom configurations to meet high current metering applications. They are ideal for use within hybrid circuit breakers and other components used in smart metering. In addition to assisting with wire selection and number of turns to optimize application parameters, Standex engineers assist with integration of components, development of custom packaging, and value added features such as shielding, PCB with ground plane to reduce noise, and more.
Rogowski coils are wire wound “air” core toroids used to measure AC current. The AC current that is measured creates a magnetic field which induces a voltage in the Rogowski coil that is proportional to the change in current. They are ideal for high current metering applications because of their very high accuracy.
A conductor which carries the current to be measured passes through the center of the Rogoswki coil which senses the change in current. An integrator transforms the signal to be measured while a filter eliminates any noise within the signal. Advances in digital IC measurement technology have substantially increased integrator reliability, fueling their acceptance within applications such as smart metering.
Among the benefits of this proven technology are low cost, very good linearity over measurement range, very good high current measuring capability, low power consumption, no DC/high current saturation problem, very low output variation with temperature, no DC offset problem, and no saturation and hysteresis problem.
