Milpitas, CA., June 13, 2023 – Crocus Expertise, the chief in TMR magnetic sensor expertise, is  thrilled to unveil the CT40x, a brand new trade customary for present sensing options that permits an  excellent stability of efficiency and price with out compromise. The CT40x revolutionizes present  sensing in in the present day’s dynamic and demanding environments with unparalleled efficiency and distinctive  accuracy addressing all contact and contactless present sensing purposes. 

The CT40x is engineered to supply complete options that empower engineers and system  integrators to realize unmatched efficiency and effectivity. Supporting each AC and DC present measurements, the CT40x seamlessly integrates into various energy methods and purposes. It presents  ratiometric output from the provision voltage, guaranteeing correct and constant measurements even in  dynamic working circumstances. The CT40x arrives pre-calibrated with factory-trimmed sensitivity and  output voltage, eliminating the necessity for extra calibration and saving invaluable set up time and  effort. CT40x gives flexibility in energy provide necessities supporting each 3.3V and 5V. 

The CT40x might be out there in a number of package deal choices for contact and contactless sensing. For contact  present sensing, there may be a powerful vary of ±10A to ±65A; for contactless present sensing, there isn't a  restrict to the quantity of present measurable within the software.  

The Contactless CT40x is able to excessive decision measurements due to its excessive SNR with  detectivity at ~ 5µT. It additionally presents immunity to stray magnetic fields by differential sensing with out  the necessity for shields and concentrators. The CT40x caters to a broad spectrum of purposes, from low energy gadgets to high-performance methods. It boasts distinctive immunity to widespread mode fields (- 40dB), guaranteeing exact readings even within the presence of exterior interference. The CT40x’s outstanding  bandwidth of 500 kHz captures speedy present fluctuations with precision, enabling real-time monitoring  and speedy response. It displays an excellent typical whole error of lower than ±3% FS (-40˚C to 125˚C),  offering confidence in its accuracy and reliability throughout a variety of working temperatures. 

The CT40x TMR sensor brings efficiency with out compromise in opposition to current legacy Corridor and MR options, enabling the market-wide adoption of TMR expertise. It presents pin-to-pin compatibility,  making it a seamless alternative for Corridor sensors whereas offering long-awaited efficiency  enhancements. In comparison with resistor shunts, the CT40x presents a smaller measurement, better effectivity and  inherent galvanic isolation, eliminating the necessity for cumbersome and power-consuming shunt resistors.  In comparison with conventional CT (present transformer) options akin to these utilized in server rack Energy  Distribution Items (PDUs), the CT40x boasts a smaller footprint and decrease value, offering a extra  compact and cost-effective present sensing answer. With its superior options and benefits, the CT40x establishes itself as a compelling selection for designers, engineers and producers requiring enhanced  efficiency, effectivity, and cost-effectiveness of their present sensing purposes. 

The CT40x delivers an array of advantages and benefits that improve its worth proposition. Its distinctive  immunity to exterior interference ensures correct measurements, even in electromagnetically noisy  environments, offering dependable and constant outcomes. With a complete error of effectively lower than 1% typical and  a max error of lower than 3% over the complete temperature vary, the CT40x surpasses trade requirements, 

guaranteeing exact present measurements underneath various working circumstances. Designed to fulfill UL and  IEC isolation requirements, the CT40x assures compliance and security in various purposes. 

The CT40x finds purposes throughout a variety of industries and sectors, just like the CT41/2/3x,  although focused towards the high-volume, cost-sensitive segments which nonetheless demand efficiency. In  photo voltaic and energy inverters, it allows exact present sensing, enhancing system effectivity and  efficiency. For motor drives, the CT40x’s distinctive accuracy and extensive present vary permit exact  management and monitoring. In HVAC, UPS, and numerous EV charging purposes, it ensures environment friendly  operation and system safety. Moreover, the CT40x enhances present sensing capabilities in  residential and industrial gear, from dwelling home equipment to industrial merchandise, guaranteeing optimum  efficiency, security, and vitality effectivity. 

“The CT40x represents a breakthrough in present sensing expertise and enhances our ever-growing  portfolio of state-of-the-art contact and contactless XtremeSense TMR-based merchandise with out the necessity  for built-in concentrators which impede efficiency” stated President and CEO Zack Deiri. “CT40x is  proof that Crocus TMR can present the performance-to-cost stability required by many market segments  whereas providing the very best SNR, unparalleled accuracy, and excessive response time to essential occasions. This  performance-to-cost ratio is unattained by every other current applied sciences. We're assured that the  CT40x will redefine the requirements of present sensing and drive innovation in numerous industries.”
