NCS Industry Current Sensors

100% Electronic

The main advantage of the NCS range of sensors is that they are designed using a brand-new solution: 100% electronic technology. Unlike other currently available solutions such as shunts and CTs, this approach means that these sensors are very compact. Several patents were necessary to achieve this improvement.

Considerable Energy Savings

NCS sensors offer considerable savings in energy. Indeed only a few watts are required to power the NCS sensor in contrast to traditional sensors that require several hundred watts. This reduction in wasted energy means there is no rise in temperature around the sensor.

Designed to be integrated into every situation

The NCS sensor is entirely symmetrical. Its square shape and strategically positioned oblong holes make it easy to fasten in a choice of 2 positions. It comes with a pair of flanges that can be fastened on either side of the sensor giving complete fitting flexibility. It meets the standard design of ABB current sensors. It can be fitted both horizontally and vertically. This flexibility means that NCS sensors can be fitted in any position and simplifies the work of integrators. Additionally the pair of right angle brackets allows the NCS sensor to be fitted to one or several bars at the same time.

Utilisation

Sensors to measure d.c., a.c. or pulsating currents with a galvanic insulation between primary and secondary circuits.


HBO Industry Current Sensors

These sensors are designed to be fixed by the case. They may be either vertically or horizontally mounted. The secondary connection is made with a connector. For HBO sensors the primary conductor may be a cable or a bar.

Hall Effect - Open Loop

A single size for every rating

With a single size for every rating (from 100 A to 1000 A), HBO current sensors give you the possibility of increasing equipment standardization.

ES Industry Current Sensors

These sensors are designed to be fixed by the case. They may be either horizontally or vertically mounted. The secondary connection is made with a connector or cable. For ES and ESM sensors the primary conductor may be a cable or a bar.

Hall Effect - Closed Loop

The resin concept : a reference that has become a standard

Since obtaining ISO 14001 certification in 1998 ABB has integrated an essential concept into its ES current sensors : a determination to anticipate market requirements and genuine concern for the protection of the environment. This fundamental concern is the overwhelming culture that permeates the company. No wonder our competitors are jealous and find our approach an inspiration for their own efforts. With the introduction of recyclable resin, ABB were trailblazers of an innovation that has over the years become a touchstone. It was this concept that enabled ABB to obtain ISO 14001 certification for their concern for the environment. Optimized settings, waste control, minimization of losses, etc. are all factors that again ensure ABB pride of place in the field of current sensors.

46% smaller!

As components get smaller but more powerful, installing current sensors is becoming a real problem. But with ABB's ES range, the whole thing is child's play. By being the first in the field to offer these smaller current sensors that maintain your high-performance objectives, ABB have met the challenge of giving you the space you always needed.

ESM Industry Current Sensors

High precision for all situations

With two mounting positions, the ABB sensor sets itself apart in the market. It is the first to offer a major innovation with the option of vertical or horizontal mounting. Other sensor manufacturers have been influenced by this arrangement. A way to considerably simplify the work of integrators! The ABB sensor also allows for reduced dimensions for the equipment into which it is being integrated, whilst meeting the requirements of the latest standards. So many essential advantages to better satisfy your aspirations. Between professionals, we understand each other. An incomparable immunity against magnetic fields ESM sensors are thought out, designed and recognised for having an incomparable immunity against surrounding magnetic fields. Being constantly in the presence of strong currents can potentially disturb and produce measurement errors, but this is not the case. They have constant precision and are committed to measure a given current. Only this one and not another.

An unavoidable requirement: reduce the volume and increase the power

The improvements in performance of the components used in electronic power systems and the requirement to reduce costs leads constructors to an irreversible tendency: produce smaller, more powerful and cheaper systems. The sensors, following this tendency, are subject to more and more magnetic interference. The ESM range replies well to this requirement by offering an improved immunity to this interference.

  • Faced with a current offering with insufficient reliability that doesn’t meet the market standards, ABB has innovated with the VD Traction voltage detector. This 100% electronic product allows your maintenance operatives to detect the presence of a continuous or alternating voltage, before carrying out operations on equipment. When the diode flashes, the voltage is greater than 50 V and when it is extinguished, the voltage is below this limit. Provided with a double internal function and independent LEDs, the VD Traction voltage detector offers redundant safety and a lifetime of greater than 1 million hours. Guaranteed for 2 years, it allows reliable decisions to carry out operations to be made and protects personnel from dangerous high voltages.
  • Utilisation

  • Electronic detectors for direct and alternating voltages. This safety device signals the presence of dangerous voltages via the independent flashing of two LEDs (Light emitting diodes). A secondary supply voltage is not necessary.
