Disconnect and lock out power to the conductor to be monitored. 1.
Choose a location for the sensor. The monitored conductor must pass through the 2.
iris, and the sensor must be at least ½" from any uninsulated conductors.
Install the adjustable mounting bracket to the back of the enclosure using the 3.
included screws.
Connect 15-30VAC/DC to the terminals marked Power (+) and Gnd (-). 4.
Wire the output (mA or VDC) connections between the sensor and the controller. 5.
Snap the sensor over the conductor to be monitored and clip the assembly to the 6.
mounting bracket.
Set the field-selectable switch to the desired amperage level (see page 2). 7.

The H970HCB is a current-sensitive device that monitors DC current (amperage)
in the conductor passing through it. The unit combines a Hall Effect sensor with
proven transducer circuitry, with a status output suitable for connection to building
controllers or other appropriate data acquisition equipment operating at up to
30 volts. The H970HCB requires 15-30VAC/DC to generate its output. Selectable
amperage ranges and output types maximize the installation flexibility.
OPERATION
NOTES
TROUBLESHOOTING
SET-UP AND WIRING
For load currents less than sensor minimum rating:
Wrap the monitored conductor through the center hole and around the sensor body
to produce multiple turns through the "window." This increases the current measured
by the transducer.
Controller must be
programmed to account
for the extra turns. e.g., if
four turns pass through the
sensor (as shown) the normal
controller reading must be
divided by 4.
1A
< 5A (sensor min.) 4x
4A
Problem Solution
The LED is off and no signal is
produced
Verify that power is applied to PWR (+) and GND (-)
terminals
The LED is on solid and the output
is at maximum
Verify that the amperage range selection switch is
in the proper position for the current applied to the
conductor.
CAUTION
RISK OF EQUIPMENT DAMAGE
- Derate the product's maximum current for the number of turns
through the sensing window using the foIIowing formuIa.
Rated Max. Amps ÷ Number of 7urns = Max. monitored Amps
e.g. : 100A ÷ 4 7urns = 25 Amps max. in monitored conductor
- IaiIure to foIIow these instructions can resuIt in overheating
and permanent equipment damage.
