The BCM270 provides an economical and compact solution to monitoring of ac loads. When used with the internal CT and the solid state output the BCM270 is powered from the incoming AC-current taking only 1.6VA from the driving current. Loads such as motors or heaters can be directly connected to the BCM270. The 15 turn threshold adjustment enables precise setting over the entire operating range. The front mounted LED indicates when the input is over the threshold setting. The output can be two NPN transistors or relay contact.
