Ground fault sensors, DC current transducers, switches

AutomationDirect acuAMP line of current sensors now includes AC ground fault sensors and DC current transducers and switches.


GFS series of ground fault sensors from AutomationDirect monitors all current-carrying conductors in grounded single and three-phase delta or wye systems. Available in fixed-core models, the GFS series features jumper-selectable setpoints of 5, 10 or 30 mA. The sensors can accommodate up to 14 AWG copper wire and feature mechanical relay outputs with either manual or auto reset. UL and CE have approved GFS series of ground fault sensors.

The DCT series of DC current transducers combines a Hall Effect sensor and signal conditioner into a single package for use in dc current applications up to 400A. Designed to be compatible with most PLCs, data loggers and SCADA systems, the DCT series features jumper-selectable current input ranges and industry standard 4-20 mA or +/- 10 V dc outputs. The are available in split-core or fixed-core models.

DCS100 series dc current switches feature jumper-selectable current input ranges up to 100 A and are available in normally-open solid-state and SPDT relay output models. The switches are equipped with removable terminal blocks which accept up to 12 AWG solid or stranded wire.

All acuAMP sensors are panel-mountable; convenient DIN rail adaptor accessories are also available.

The complete acuAMP series offers outstanding features, flexibility, and durability. Backed with a five-year warranty, the complete line of current transducers and switches provides dependable service for virtually any application.

Annual Salary Survey

After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.

The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
