Word forms: (regular plural) milliamps
( Electrical engineering : Circuits , Communication )
To satisfy a 5 milliamp trip level, the signal processor must be designed to respond to a transformer primary
excitation of 0.005 ampere-turns.
Traditionally, a differential current transformer is utilized to sense when the 5
milliamp threshold is exceeded.
A milliamp is a unit for measuring electrical current equal to one thousandth of an ampere.
