ZMCT103C is a high precision Current Transformer. This module makes it easy to monitor AC mains current upto 5A. A tiny little thing the size of a bouillon cube. Holds up to 4.5kV per breakdown voltage, the ratio of turns is 1000: 1, but this is a current transformer of 5A: 5mA.
Download the datasheet of ZMCT103C it provide details specification, dimensions, mounting etc.
To connect a ZMCT103C sensor to an Arduino board, the output signal from the ZMCT sensor needs to be convert into measurable range of Arduino analog inputs, that is +ve voltage between 0V and the ADC reference voltage (5V is no ADC Reff is supplied) .
To do this job the following circuit is used,
The output of ZMCT103C is acurrent signal, which needs to be converted to a voltage signal using a burden resistor. See the calculation of Burdon resistor of SCT-013
