DCT-0016-100 Split-Core Current Sensor
Magnelab’s DCT-0016-100 (previously MAG-J16D005-100) is a 16mm split-core current sensor that transforms an AC current of 100 Amps to a DC voltage output up to 5 Vdc. Split-core sensors are ideal for installation on existing electrical wiring by snapping around the conductor. The DCT-0016 has a self-locking mechanism.

DCT-0016-100 | Description
The Magnelab DCT-0016-100 previously sold under the product name MAG-J16D005-100. This sensor contains a split core with a 16mm opening. Capable of detecting up to 100 Amps of AC current this current sensor transforms the input signal to 0 to 5 Vdc DC voltage output. This type of current transducer is ideal in places where electrical wiring is installed previously. Accordingly, it simply snaps around the conductor itself with a self-locking mechanism. Constructed using high quality materials, therefore, it will never break. This is also why the device comes with a 7 year warranty.
The device is used in a variety of different applications. Most commonly, it is used as a power monitor for pumps and HVAC applications. In addition, it is also found in small industrial motors, refrigeration, lighting and fans. As such, it is a very versatile piece of technology.
It features 100 Amps AC as rated input and an output of 5 Vdc. The DCT-0016-100 has a built in 7.5 Vdc limit, which gives it added safety. The AC transformer has full scale accuracy of 2% either up or down, and operating frequencies of 50 and 60 Hz. The accuracy on rated current is 5% to 120% and it has a 23 KOhms output impedance with an output ripple of 5%, up or down. Like the DCT-0036 current sensor, it comes with two M3 screw terminals. Finally, the voltage on the system is CAT III 600 VAC and it is fully UL recognized as being RoHS and CE compliant.
