New ASXP-LS Current Switches from NK Technologies Take Complexity Out of Monitoring High-Current Loads

New switches deliver superior reliability, long-term durability and easy installation

SAN JOSE, CA – NK Technologies introduces ASXP-LS Current Switches – a combination current transformer and signal conditioner designed specifically for monitoring large loads. The ASXP-LS Current Switches feature electromechanical relay output, external power source, simple field setpoint adjustment and easy installation. The mechanical relay contact provides a trouble-free, durable alarm or interlock, improving safety and overall system reliability, while the selectable "Fail Safe" operation provides protection for critical loads.


ASXP-LS Current Switches are used to monitor large machines for over- or under-load conditions, detect open discharge lines and sense clogged filters. They can also monitor generators to shed non-critical loads when demand reaches a set level. Key features inlcude:

*Split-Core Housing: Allows sensor to be installed over existing conductors

*Easy Installation: Snap onto DIN rail or attach to back panel through sensor base

Larger Sensing Aperture: Large window (2.3" w x 3.42" h) easily accommodates conductors and multiple wires per phase

*Electromechanical Relay Output: Use with AC or DC control circuits and for no-volt inputs (e.g. timing relay triggers)

*Load Start Delay: Adjustable delay allows large motors to start against high-inertia loads without tripping

*Wide Range: Four models available with trip points between 200 – 1600 amps

*Accepted Worldwide: Designed to meet UL, CUL, and CE requirements

Qualifying OEMs can request no-cost test and evaluation units. For application notes and a helpful white paper on current sensing, visit the NK Technologies website at www.nktechnologies.com.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
