ZigBee Hall Effect sensor ZED-ICC-M for direct current measurements

The ZED-ICC-M sensor is a battery supplied device that measures direct current through the Hall effect and regularly sends the collected information toward one of the 4-noks range Gateways. The measure is based onto the magnetic effect caused by the passage of the electric current in a conductor. To use the sensor, the bottom of the device has to be close to the conductor under current keeping a distance as larges as greater is the current to measure. The range is included between 0 to 1000A and dipends by the distance of the sensible element of the conductor under current.

Is possible to set the device in order to manage alarms to ring when its limits are trespassed, because of an exceeding value or of a too small value. It is also possible to schedule the sampling timing and the sending modalities of the measurements in order to increase the duration of the battery.
