Atlantik Elektronik presents new ultra-high accuracy 3V coreless SMD current sensor from AKM

More than 8mm of creepage / clearance distance

Planegg, December 4th, 2019

Atlantik Elektronik, provider of innovative sensor solutions, presents the new ultra-high accuracy coreless current sensor series CZ-3AGx from Asahi Kasei Microdevices, leading company of magnetic sensors.
With a wide current detection lineup from ±11.6 to ±116.4App, 50Arms, and two overcurrent protection circuits, the CZ-3AGx series can be used for many applications including AC motors, USPs and general-purpose inverters.

The launch of the CZ-3AGx series makes more selectable in input/output voltages of AKM's coreless current sensors, enabling to support 3.3V and 5V systems by CZ-3A0x and CZ-370x series.

The CZ-3AGx series supports 5V input and 3V output. It is best for a sensor signal input to a 3.3V A/D converter in a 5V system. By adding the CZ-3AGx series to the lineup of CZ-3A0x series released in December 2018, it is possible to support both 5V and 3V input voltages.

By developing AKM’s original package, both creep age distance and clearance of 8mm or more is achieved. It supports working Voltage of 600Vrms (with reinforced insulation), making insulation design easy.

The CZ-3AGx series has a low resistance of 0.27mΩ as the primary conductor resistance with AKM’s original package. As a result, compared to shunt resistors and similar products of other companies, heat generation when applying the current can be greatly suppressed, and 50Arms continuous current is achieved.

The new current sensor series CZ-3AGx from Asahi Kasei Microdevices is available now at Atlantik Elektronik.
