Current transducers for DC monitoring
DT Series Current Transducers from NK Technologies have a large aperture design, making it easy to monitor any circuit up to 1200 amps. It has a DIN-rail mount enclosure for easy installation.
NK Technologies' DT Series Large Aperture Current Transducers combines a hall effect sensor and signal conditioner into one package for use in dc current applications up to 1200 amps. Factory calibrated ranges simplify operation and eliminate zero and span pots. Industry standard 4-20 mA, 0-5 V dc or 0-10 V dc outputs are magnetically isolated from the input to provide maximum safety, and eliminate insertion losses. Internal power regulation delivers reliable operation and helps keep installation costs low, even in applications with unregulated power. A DIN-rail mount enclosure makes installation easy.
The ability to monitor any circuit up to 1200 amps makes DT series large aperture current transducers ideally suited for any number of applications, including:
- Monitoring load and charging currents, and verifying operation, of battery banks.
- Measuring traction power or auxiliary loads in transportation applications.
- Monitoring dc powered motors in cranes, saws, sorters and positioning equipment.
- Measuring the current produced or consumed, and detecting mechanical problems before a failure occurs, in wind and solar power generation applications.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
