INSTALLATION

CAUTION
Disconnect, lockout and tag out all power supplies during installation

  1. Determine the mounting location for the sensor near the conductor to be monitored. The sensor should be located AT LEAST 1/2” from any uninsulated conductor.
    For CSP split-core sensors,
  2. Sensor features a flexible iris which allows the sensor to hang on the conductor if local codes permit. A bracket is included for screw mounting or attaching to the DIN rail. For screw mounting, drill two 3/32” pilot holes using the bracket as a template;  ensure no drill shavings are present in the enclosure.
  3. Clamp sensor around INSULATED CONDUCTOR ONLY, 600VAC MAX to be monitored through the iris of the sensor. For CSP-NO-AVFD, monitor on LOAD side of VFD drive.
  4. Snap the sensor into the mounting bracket.
  5. Wire the output of the sensor to a control panel digital input loop not to exceed 30VAC/DC. Tighten terminals to 3.5 in-lb.

For CS/MCS solid core sensors,

  1.  Drill a single 3/32” pilot hole for mounting the sensor; ensure no drill shavings are present in the enclosure.
  2.  Insert INSULATED CONDUCTOR ONLY, 600VAC MAX to be monitored through the iris of the sensor.
  3. Reconnect the conductor and torque appropriately.
  4. Wire the output of the sensor to a control panel digital input loop not to exceed 30VAC/DC wetting voltage. Tighten terminals to 3.5 in-lb.
  5. Screw mount the sensor to the enclosure.
  6. Wire the output of the sensor to a control panel digital input loop not to exceed 30VAC/DC. Tighten terminals to 3.5 in-lb.

WIRING EXAMPLESHoneywell CS CSP MCS Series Current Switches - fig 9

NOTE: An AECM sensor is shown here, but the diagram represents the wiring required for all sensors.

TECH TIPS
On low current loads, wrap sensor multiple times to increase sensitivityHoneywell CS CSP MCS Series Current Switches - fig 8

Godox WL8P Waterproof LED Light-- Godox WL8hjP WatCAUTION
Do not exceed sensor maximum current. The current detected by the sensor will increase 1X with each wrap.
To monitor loads greater than the current sensor maximum rating Use a properly rated 5A CT as shown belowHoneywell CS CSP MCS Series Current Switches - fig 7

Godox WL8P Waterproof LED Light-- Godox WL8hjP WatCAUTION
5A CTs can present hazardous voltages. Install CTs in accordance with manufacturers’ instructions. Terminate the CT secondary wiring before energizing the primary conductor.
Table 1. Troubleshooting

Symptom Causes Remedy
Sensor output does not change state Amperage is below sensor minimum threshold Loop monitored conductor multiple turns through
sensor. See Tech Tips
Incorrect control wiring Ensure control loop voltage is present
Testing with ohm meter yields incorrect results Solid-state output may show approx. 1 ohm or less.
Adjustable CT and AECM: Adjustment incorrect See Adjustable Conventional Calibration or AECM setup procedure
AVFD: Minimum frequency too low. Drive must ramp to 40Hz min. for the sensor to alarm.

RECYCLING

The product should not be thrown away in the regular trash. Instead, it should be recycled according to the local municipality.

CSP-NO-F / CS-NO-F OPERATIONHoneywell CS CSP MCS Series Current Switches - fig 6

The CSP-NO-F-200A output changes state whenever current above 0.35A is present; THE CS-NO-F-50A output changes state above 0.25A. This provides “go/no” status on loads that are not subject to mechanical failures.
Typical on/off status applications include:

  • Lighting circuits
  •  Heater elements
  •  Direct drive fans (e.g. exhaust fans)
  •  Process motors

CSP-NO-A / MCS-NO-A UNPOWERED CALIBRATION

Adjust knob on the sensor to motor full load amperage (FLA) as indicated on motor nameplate or overload protection device.Honeywell CS CSP MCS Series Current Switches - fig 5

The sensor scale is pre-calibrated for motors operating at a minimum of 75% FLA.
On startup, the sensor output will close when the monitored current exceeds 70% FLA, and open if the current is below 60% FLA to indicate load loss (broken belt, coupling shear, etc.)
For lightly loaded (oversized) motors operating below 75% FLA, the sensor should be set to actual FLA to ensure positive status detection and avoid nuisance alarms.
Smaller (less than 5HP) motors and/or lightly loaded motors may not have sufficient reduction in amperage (below 60% FLA) for the sensor to detect belt loss immediately. The sensor will detect the belt loss when the motor is restarted, as long as the unloaded motor current is below 70% FLA.
For improved performance on small and lightly loaded motors, consider the following options:
1. Use lower current models CSP-NO-A-100A or MCSNO-A-50A for improved calibration resolution.
2. Perform conventional calibration.
CSP-NO-A / MCS-NO-A
CONVENTIONAL CALIBRATION
Follow all safety precautions outlined in this manual. Follow ALL requirements in NFPA 70E for safe work practices and for Personal Protective Equipment (USA) and other applicable local codes when installing this product.
Read all warnings carefully.
1. Adjust knob on the sensor to maximum FLA. (Fully clockwise)
2. With the motor operating normally, adjust the knob SLOWLY counter-clockwise until the “Hi” LED is lit.Honeywell CS CSP MCS Series Current Switches - fig 4

Set knob proportionally below FLA.
Belt loss will be detected on restart.
Perform Conventional Calibration for best results.
ECM MOTOR APPLICATIONS
ECM stands for Electrically Commutated Motor. These motors are gaining popularity due to their energy savings capability for applications that don’t require the motor to always run at full speed by allowing the end-user to reduce the speed of the motor. It is important to consider the quiescent or standby current draw of an ECM from the onboard electronics. This stand-by current draw typically ranges from 250mA to 500mA and varies by manufacturer. This stand-by current can sometimes be enough to cause
a sensitive current sensor to be in the ON state even when the motor is not actually running giving a false indication. In order to prevent this the current sensors turn-on
current must be higher than the ECM stand-by current.
Honeywell’s Adjustable Turn-On ECM Current Switch allows you to set/adjust your turn-on threshold appropriately for your application. Set the dial so that the turn-on amperage is slightly higher than your ECM standby current. This will typically be around 400mA.Honeywell CS CSP MCS Series Current Switches - fig 2

On startup, the sensor output will close when the monitored current exceeds the dial setting, and open if the monitored current is below the dial setting minus the fixed hysteresis value of the current switch.
CSP-NO-AECM SETUP (RECOMMENDED)
Follow all safety precautions outlined in this manual. Follow all requirements in NFPA 70E for safe work practices and for Personal Protective Equipment (USA) and other applicable local codes when installing this product.
Read all warnings carefully.

  1. With ECM powered on but not running measure the ECM current draw with a meter capable of measuring current.
  2. Turn the power off to ECM and set the dial on the current sensor to a value slightly higher than what you measured in step 1. For example, measurement of 500mA from the meter set the dial to about 600mA.
  3.  Power on ECM and verify OPEN LED is on.
  4. Next, run ECM at minimum speed and verify CLOSED LED is on.
  5. Stop ECM but leave powered on and verify OPEN LED is on.
  6.  The setup is now complete. You may need to repeat steps 1 through 5 above during the initial setup to get the correct setting. Once adjusted the Honeywell ECM current switch will provide a true status output as shown in the chart above.

CSP-NO-AECM SETUP (ALTERNATE)
Follow all safety precautions outlined in this manual.
Follow all requirements in NFPA 70E for safe work practices and for Personal Protective Equipment (USA) and other applicable local codes when installing this product.
Read all warnings carefully.

  1.  The dial is set from the factory to a value of about 500mA.
  2.  Once installed on the ECM conductor with your motor STOPPED but powered on, verify the OPEN LED is on. If OPEN LED is off adjust the dial clockwise until the OPEN LED is on.
  3. Turn the dial counterclockwise until the CLOSED LED is on. This is the turn-on amperage or approximate value of your ECM stand-by current.
  4. Turn the dial clockwise until the CLOSED LED is off and continue clockwise slightly to give a margin of operation between the on and off states. Leave dial at this setting and you’re done with the current sensor setup.

CSP-NO-AVFD CALIBRATION/TRAINING
No calibration is necessary.
The sensor will automatically detect belt loss on motors operated by variable speed drive after 10 seconds of operation above 40Hz. This is because the device leaves the factory in the 40Hz training mode.
OPTIONAL MANUAL SETUP: To reset and restart calibration/training, press/hold the button for 1 second(40Hz mode) or 3 seconds (50Hz mode). LED will make 4 blinks in 5 seconds which indicates the device is in “Training” mode. Operate motor above 40Hz for 10 seconds (40Hz mode) or 50Hz for 10 seconds (50Hz mode), recommend 45Hz and 55Hz respectively.
To activate go/no mode, press/hold the button for 5 seconds. LED will make 3 fast blinks.Honeywell CS CSP MCS Series Current Switches - fig

CSP-NO-AVFD OPERATIONHoneywell CS CSP MCS Series Current Switches - AVFD OPERATION

The CSP-NO-AVFD-150A utilizes a proprietary sensing algorithm to detect belt loss on motors operated by variable frequency drives.
Reliable operation requires variable frequency drive to increase frequency to a minimum of 40Hz when the load is lost.
Typical load status applications include:

  • Proof of flow
  • Belt-loss detection
  • Coupling shear
