GO series - A Breath of Fresh Air in Power Electronics

LEM International GO series

A fast measurement speed, achieved within tight cost and size constraints while integrating the primary conductor in SO packages without compromising the necessary insulation, is often as critical as the other high performances for current measurement in motor-drive applications.

A unique sensor with an integrated primary conductor achieves optimum temperature accuracy, measuring from -40 to +125 °C in a surface mounted SO8 or SO16 package. 

10-30 A nominal current Better than 1.3 % accuracy @ +25°C  Differential Hall...
