Murata Power Solution’s new ACA-20RM Series are the world’s first digital ac-ammeters
to incorporate a built-in current transformer (CT) to directly measure the true-rms value of
complex, non-sinusoidal ac currents from 2 to 50A – no bulky and expensive 5A “donut”
CTs are required! Operation and setup is straightforward: simply pass the load-carrying
wire through the on-board CT, apply power, and the ammeter is fully operational.
Five input ranges measure 0-0.2 amps (0.1mA resolution), 0-2 amps (0.001A resolution),
0-20 amps (0.01A resolution), 0-30 amps (0.1A resolution) or 0-50 amps (0.1A resolution).
The 50A model features an oversized split-core current transformer that easily accommodates wires sizes up to 4 AWG (21.2mm2). Two power supply options are available: 85-140V
(47-63Hz), and 170-264V (47-63Hz).
All models are totally self-contained; no external components are required. Power consumption from a nominal 120V or 220V ac supply is less than 50mA. And, precision autozeroing circuitry, super-stable components, and an rms-to-dc converter circuit combine to
achieve excellent performance when measuring the complex, non-sinusoidal, ac currents
found in today’s computer/telecom equipment.
ACA-20RM Series ammeters feature full-size, 0.37" (9.4mm) high, 3½ digit, bright red
LED-displays and a built-in bezel/filter assembly that features metal fasteners. They are
panel-cutout compatible with MPS’s DMS-20 Series of ac voltage and frequency monitors,
making ACA-20RM ammeters perfect replacements for older, less reliable, analog panel
meters in today’s sophisticated IT instrumentation.

➂ Specified accuracy applies to inputs with crest factors (CF) up to 2.0, where CF
= Vpeak/Vrms. Crest factors of 2 to 5 introduce an additional error of ±3% of full
scale. Ammeters are calibrated with a near full-scale 60Hz sine-wave current
flowing through the ammeter’s built-in CT.
➃ All specified maximum power supply currents are steady state; larger surge
currents can occur at initial application of line power.

TECHNICAL NOTES
IMPORTANT! To ensure safe and reliable operation, ACA-20RM
ammeters must be installed and serviced by qualified technical
personnel after reading this data sheet in it's entirety. Contact DATEL
if there is any doubt regarding their installation or
operation.
1. Measurement Type: ACA-20RM ac ammeters employ true-rms
input circuitry to measure the stepped-down output of their on-board
current transformers (CT). Stated accuracy is measured using a sinewave input at, or close to, the specified full scale input, at a nominal
line frequency of 60HZ.
2. Calibration: Periodic recalibration of ACA-20RM ammeters is not
required under normal indoor environments. If user calibration is
deemed necessary, it must be performed by qualified technical
personnel since potentially lethal voltages and currents are applied to
the ACA-20RM during the calibration process.
Calibration is performed with approximately 95% of the specified
full-scale current flowing through the ammeter’s built-in CT. A fully
insulated, non-metallic adjusting tool must be used to adjust the
calibration potentiometer, located on the back of the ammeter (see
Mechanical Specifications section).

True-RMS-AC Ammeters with Built-in CT
The calibration potentiometer has approximately ¾ of a turn of rotation;
do not force its adjustment screw past the end stops. Contact MPS if
additional information is required regarding calibration, setup, or any
other technical issue pertaining to ACA-20RM ac ammeters.
3. Wire Gauges and Fusing: Wires specified in the Functional Specifications section must be used for making connections to ACA-20RM
series ammeters. All power-supply and load wiring must be rated for
the supply voltages and currents they will conduct and must comply
with any code or application-mandated requirements pertaining to the
user’s specific installation.
ACA-20RM ammeters are not internally fused. Terminal block TB1 is to
be used only for powering the ammeter’s internal circuitry; it must not
be used to supply power to external loads. The supply wires feeding
these ammeters must be fused with a 0.25A/250V time delay/time lag
fuse, in accordance with applicable regulatory codes.
Wire insulation must be stripped to within ±10% of the stated dimensions, and wires should be inserted into TB1 such that their insulation
is not pinched by the screw terminal.
5. Connector Torque Ratings: Be sure to tighten TB1’s screw-terminals
to 3.6 pound-inches (0.4Nm). Proper tightening will ensure reliable
long-term operation.
6. Isolation: The on-board CT (L1) provides a minimum of 2000Vdc isolation between the current-carrying load conductor passing through
its opening and the ammeter’s power source that’s connected to TB1.
Of course, this isolation rating applies only to applications where the
load wire does not connect directly or indirectly to TB1-A or TB1-B
(i.e., where two different ac supplies are involved).
7. Split-Core CT (Clamp-on) Models: 50A models feature a split-core
current transformer that can be clamped around a current-carrying
load conductor without having to disconnect or remove power from
the load’s power source. This live-connection capability can only
be used if the load’s power source is isolated (see technical note 6)
from the ammeter’s own power source that’s connected to TB1.
The ammeter’s ac power supply must always be denergized before
making connections to TB1. Refer to the ‘Panel Installation’ section of
this data sheet for additional information.
4. AC Supply Polarity and Grounding: The two supply inputs, TB1 ‘A’ and
‘B’, on ACA-20RM ammeters are not polarity sensitive, that is, they have
no ‘AC LO’ or ‘AC HI’ designations. Also, ac-powered ACA-20RM ammeters do not include or require a connection to earth/chassis ground.
WIRING DIAGRAMS
First pass and carefully dress one external load wire through L1, then
connect the AC supply and load wires to TB1 as shown. Ensure all wires
are stripped and properly tightened. For accurate operation, make only
one pass with load wire through the on-board CT (only one primary turn).
For split-core CT models, make sure to fully engage the CT's Locking
mechanism

PANEL INSTALLATIONS
All connections to ACA-20RM Series ammeters must be made after the
ammeter is securely attached to its panel and with all associated load
and supply voltages de-energized (off). However, using extreme caution
and observing all safety measures applicable to the user’s installation,
50A split-core CT models can be connected to energized current-carrying
load conductors, but connections to TB1 must always be made with the
ammeter’s power source off.
Using Figure 4 as a guide, carefully insert the bezel/color filter assembly
into the panel opening. From the rear of the panel, install the four round
plastic standoffs over the bezel’s threaded studs. Install the pc-board
assembly; then attach and securely tighten each of the four hex nuts
to 15-20 ozf-in (0.106 to 0.140 N-m). Use only the factory-supplied
hardware as the use of substitute hardware could result in an unsafe
installation and/or adversely affect the reliability of the ammeter itself.
The recommended range of panel thickness that can be used with the
supplied hardware is 0.040 inches (1.0mm) to 0.125 inches (3.2mm).
Panel thickness outside of this range will require additional user-supplied
hardware and/or modifications.
Care should be exercised when passing the load-carrying conductor
through the meter’s built-in CT—particularly when larger conductors are
used. The installed wire-positions should be such that minimal mechanical forces are applied to the built-in CT, TB1, or to the ammeter itself. In
high-vibration environments, it is strongly recommended that adequate
strain reliefs be used for all load and supply wiring.
