Self-powered wireless current sensor

Functional Devices has released what it says is the world’s first completely EnOcean-based self-powered wireless current sensor. Current sensors monitor the status of electrical current flowing through a power line. Functional Devices’ solution wirelessly transmits this status and enables remote monitoring or linking the operation of one machine with another.

Functional Devices has released what it says is the world’s first completely EnOcean-based self-powered wireless current sensor. Current sensors monitor the status of electrical current flowing through a power line. Functional Devices’ solution wirelessly transmits this status and enables remote monitoring or linking the operation of one machine with another. The Functional Devices current sensor is said to be unique because it generates its own power for sensing and wireless communication. Functional Devices wireless current sensor (RIBXKJF-EN) detects load currents ranging from 3-150 A and transmits radio signals via the interoperable EnOcean wireless standard. The radio signal is sent to a wireless relay/repeater that uses load current data to switch electrical loads up to 20 A.
