Highly stable and accurate shunt sensor series released

05-07-2024 | Bourns | Power

Bourns, Inc. has released the Model SSD Shunt Sensor – Digital Series. The series includes innovatively designed digital DC shunt-based current sensors that deliver superior accuracy, stability and electrical isolation over a wide -40C to +115C operating temperature range. These small and highly integrated digital SiP devices are ideal for many battery-related current sensing applications, including large-scale energy storage banks, renewable energy generation infrastructure, industrial motor drives, building automation systems, and EV charging stations.

The series features a 16-bit automotive-grade MCU and delivers accuracy of ±0.1% full scale. The internal 24-bit ADC offers plug-and-play simplicity, helping to significantly streamline implementation so engineers can quickly add high-accuracy current measurement into their latest designs or retrofit it into existing ones. These shunt-based sensors also help eliminate the need for periodic device calibrations, all while providing highly accurate measurements that contribute to more efficient use of power. There are two models: the RS-485 serial interface model, which can also be configured as MODBUS RTU, and the customizable CANbus model.
