IAS: Analogue Current Sensor for High-Side Shunt-based Current Monitoring
The IAS is a good alternative to magnetic converters and boasts advantages such as shuntbased measurement with good longterm stability of more than 0.5 %, good linearity coupled with high dynamic response, and compact dimensions to the point.
The IAS is also a suitable alternative to DIN Shunts. Here, the main benefits lie in the far lower losses coupled with greater resolution caused by the use of lowresistance shunts.
A further merit of the new sensor is highside measurement, meaning no separate supply voltage is needed. The typical offset for unidirectional operation is < 3 µV. The operating temperature range can be adjusted within a range of - 40 to + 125 °C, depending on the application. The use of a controller enables customers to read out or process the 0 - 5 V output signals.
