VTU Voltage TransducerSAN JOSE, CA - NK Technologies introduces the VTU Voltage Transducer, which can measure AC or DC circuit voltages to 1200 volts with a single sensor. The sensor produces an analog signal directly proportional to the RMS voltage, making it an ideal tool for detecting power generation issues – such brown outs and phase loss – from both conventional and alternative sources. With industry standard output options (4-20mA, 0-5 and 0-10 VDC), the VTU Voltage Transducer is compatible with most automation and control systems.

NK Technologies’ VTU Series of voltage transducers provide high accuracy and safety in a panel or DIN rail mounted housing. The VTU Voltage Transducer is used to measure voltage in a variety of applications, including pumps and aerators for water delivery and treatment systems, allowing them to be shut down quickly if the supplied voltage falls to a dangerous level. The unit can also monitor voltage of field windings in the DC motors of cranes and heavy-lifting equipment, among many other applications.
