R3-CTxA, R3-CTxB, R3-WT4x, R3-WTU
In order to use models R3-CTxA, R3-CTxB, R3-WT4x and R3-WTU, the data range must be set up with the R3 Configurator Software (model: R3CON). This change of setting may lower the resolution of recorded data for certain input ranges.
The R3CON Configurator Software is available for downloading at M-System’s web site. A special cable is required to connect the R3 modules to a PC.
The Clamp-on Current Sensors, NOT included in the product package of the R3 modules, must be purchased separately. Please refer to data sheet for the respective models (CLSA or CLSB or CLSE).
The CLSA is used for the R3-CT4A and R3-CT8A and R3-WT4A.
The CLSB is used for the R3-CT4B and R3-CT8B and R3-WT4B.
The CLSB-R5 is used for the R3-CT4C and R3-CT8C.
The CLSE is used for the R3-WTU.
