Sentron CSA-1VG-SO Linear Hall Magnetic IC

The Sentron CSA-1VG is a single-axis Hall-effect magnetic field sensor IC that has been optimized for AC and DC current measurement applications. The current sensor is fabricated using conventional CMOS technology with an additional ferromagnetic layer. The ferromagnetic layer is used as an Integrated Magnetic Concentrator (IMC) to provide a higher magnetic gain than would be normally possible. Therefore, the circuit boasts very high magnetic sensitivity with low offset and noise.

In a typical application, the current sensor is mounted onto a printed circuit board over the trace that is carrying the current to be measured. Mounting the current sensor in this way offers high voltage isolation from the current carrying conductor. Other geometries are possible for measuring current in cables or bus bars. Please see the Engineering Kits.

The CSA-1VG-SO is RoHS compliant.

AN115_Kit

CSA-1V Application Engineering Kit - AN_115KIT

  • Low current - up to 1A RMS
  • Bi-directional
  • High dielectric isolation

This kit is ideal for evaluating low current and high voltage isolation applications. The sensitivity depends on the number of turns of magnet wire on the bobbin (approx 30mV/amp-turn).

The kit includes:

  • PCB assembly with CSA-1V-SO
    (PCB size: 12.7mm x 19.0mm x 3.6mm (excluding bobbin)
  • Nylon bobbin
  • Mating connector
  • Extra CSA-1V-SO Sample
