Question

How can a DC current of 1,000 A be measured with a K3NX Digital Panel Indicator?

Answer

Use an SDV-SH1000 Shunt, read the converted DC voltage signal at the K3NX, and scale the read value for display on the K3NX.

Note: OMRON has a wide range of Shunts available, with rated currents ranging from 5 A to 1,000 A.

The Shunt is a resistor that converts the DC current to a DC voltage.
