ABB’s new circuit monitoring system (CMS) sensor portfolio has been extended with sensors that measure currents up to 160 amps (AC and DC, TRMS), and can be installed in almost every environment with any product.
CMS sensors are among the most compact on the market, and are designed for high performance. The system consists of a control unit and sensors with different measurement ranges and mounting options. Up to 64 sensors can be connected to each control unit. The sensors are linked to the control unit via a flat cable. Measurement data are remotely accessible via a RS485 Modbus RTU interface.
CMS sensors are designed to help increase the availability and energy efficiency of electrical plants and machinery. They are capable of monitoring all branches to ensure system continuity, which is particularly important in critical power applications. When used in combination with a controller, CMS sensors can also perform rough cost allocations on a branch level.
