Measuring high currents with small current sensors

Modern current measurement trends in uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) and renewable energy systems is towards smaller physical size, higher current ranges, faster response times and lower cost. The simplicity of open-loop sensors makes them an attractive solution for attaining these objectives. This article discusses three new families of sensors which allow the nominal current to […]

IoT could cause an energy crisis

The internet of things (IoT) is on an enormous growth path. With the IoT and the industrial IoT (IIoT), the world has a way to collect millions of data points which, with cleverly written algorithms, can turn that big data into tools to supercharge production facilities, eliminate breakdowns and deliver all the good things that […]

IIoT sensors: making the physical world digital

For all the attention it has garnered in recent years, the industrial internet of things (IIoT) remains in its infancy. Contrary to popular belief, the IIoT is not only about connecting and internet-enabling assets to generate insightful data, but refers to the complete reconfiguration of the supply chain and manufacturing processes around this data. By […]
