Outdoor Split Core Current Transformer Waterproof

Hello!

I need a outdoor split core current transformer waterproof, like SCT-013-005.

Any suggestion?

Thanks!

Yes,, I suggest you use Google to search for SCT-013-005 and look at all the images he gives you . There are a bunch of split cores units that appear to be water RESISTANT.

If you can why not put it in a waterproof electrical enclosure, they are not that expensive. The plug will be your biggest problem over time it would be best if it were directly connected.

Thanks for your answer.
My initial idea was to have the microcontroller in a waterproof electrical enclousure and the sensor in the outdoor to measure the current of an electric fence.

You need IP66, IP67 or IP68 in your search string...

Are you referring to the current going to the control unit? The HIGH VOLTAGE current going to an electric fence is zero unless it is shorted to ground somewhere.

Thanks but not my question

In my tests, the current was not 0, but very low.

Do you know the meaning of IP66, IP67 or IP68? Because it's pretty much exactly what you're asking for...

That is the way it should be. Your fence is a CAPACITOR. The HV is charging a capacitor. You need to use an oscilloscope to see the charging current. IT will be a very short pulse.

If you don't want to help, don't comment. Obviously I have googled. I am looking for someone who has had some experience with a sensor. It is the third post that I receive with the same comment.
