Overview

Many current sensors on the market are sensitive to stray magnetic fields and can be very inaccurate, sometimes off as much as +/- 5 amps.

When monitoring sensitive aircraft equipment this just isnít good enough!

The ME CS-6AB & ME CS-6CB is a HIGHLY ACCURATE current sensor that uses special technology to read current loads down to +/- 0.1amps by intelligently ignoring error caused by the earth magnetic field and other stray magnetic fields found within your aircraft.

Measuring current with a current shunt and an electronic EMS is often difficult in the high electrical noise environment of an experimental aircraft, particularly ones with a Permanent Magnet (PM) alternator. The shunt method also requires breaking a wire to insert the shunt and care in mounting the shunt to protect it from shorts, which is difficult to say th least! Choose the high-accuracy ME-CS-6 instead!

The ME CS-6AB & ME CS-6CB is easy to install using just shrink tubing and zip-ties, and is compatible with any display device expecting 0-5v current sensor input. It is easy to calibrate using a simple process that yields exceptional accuracy.

CS-6CB This is the basic version designed to be operated with Engine or Flight monitoring systems that provide 5 volts to supply external sensors and accept a 0-5v input with zero current being at 2.5 volts. No input voltage protection beyond 30v, wire with caution.

Specifications

  • Output: 0-5V with 2.5 volts a zero current.
  • Sensitivity when mounted on a #8 aircraft wire: 38 mV / A
  • This results in a maximum current sensing of: +/- 65 A
  • DC Voltage input: 7-30 V
  • Current draw 35 mA
  • Power on is indicated by a LED.

Q&A

Q: Can this current sensor be substituted for the Dynon Skyview systems supplied analog ammeter shunt?

Dynon recommends using Dynon probes and shunts in the Skyview system.
