KEMET Magnetic Direct Current Sensors (MDCS™) are designed with proprietary magnetic material and hall element. These sensors are used for magnetic detection of Direct Current (DC), Alternating Current (AC), and pulse currents. The MDCS devices offer excellent linearity of the measured current and the converted power output. The output voltage in these sensors varies in proportion to the strength of the current measured. Typical applications include inverter-based home appliances (air conditioners), general purpose inverters, AC variable-speed drives and servo drives, industrial machinery, UPSs, and DC motor controls.
