That sounds like a big problem! But based upon the value of the product you may want to look at making it identifiable for prosecution using something like
You can use an inductance coil to measure ac current flow and there are kits or ready-made units. Another way is by using a Hall detector. For example, clamp meters use Hall's detector...Hi Ian, I think your proposal is good, see if you can find the spec for the 'burden' resistor on the secondary to give an output voltage across it greater than the LED + dropper resistor requirements to...Frequently for motor applications an inductive or hall effect (magnetic) sensor is used instead of an optical sensor. These have the advantage of not being affected by ambient light levels, and not being...You should also consider whether the relay you propose would respond fast enough. They have an actuation and release time and a maximum operating frequency as well as a contact life (number of operations)....article
