The theoretical analysis and design of a novel Faraday- effect current sensor are described in this paper. The new Faraday-effect current sensor consists of a spiral conductor carrying current and a Faraday-glass rod placed in the axis of the spiral conductor. Theoretical analysis and experimental research show that this scheme has advantages of easily controlled sensitivity and simple optic arrangement which make it a very suitable current sensor in the range below 500 A.
