CorSense AC Current Sensor

Technical Specifications

IoT Wireless AC Current Monitor Sensor, boasting up to a 2-mile range using a wireless mesh networking architecture. This Long Range IoT Wireless AC Current Monitor Sensor works together with a split core current sensor (included). The sensor samples currents at a high data rate and calculates the RMS value and sends a data transmission to remote modems and gateways.

This process is repeated at user-defined intervals while sleeping in between to minimize power consumption. This current sensor typically detects amperage greater than 1.5A up to 100 Amps, but it can detect lower amperage by looping the AC source wire multiple times through the sensor.

This device also has the ability to immediately alert users if current consumption exceeds preset limits. This device can be preset to detect a change in current at user-defined time intervals and sending out data if a change is greater than user defined detection range. This change detection feature can be enabled or disabled by user. To minimize power consumption, it sleeps during the time it is not checking for change. Both of these features work in parallel to support multiple application areas in one package.

Powered by just 2 AA batteries and an operational lifetime of 500,000 wireless transmissions, a 10-year battery life can be expected depending on environmental conditions and the data transmission interval. Optionally, this sensor may be externally powered.
