Ask a Question

Can the conductors be brought in the rear of a low voltage dry type distribution transformer and be brought over the top of the core and coil assembly to reach the terminals? How about if they run the conductors through conduit inside the transformer?

Issue:
Transformer conductor routing

Product Line:
LV Transformers

Environment:
Applies to  Ventilated and Non-Ventilated Transformers by SquareD/Schneider Electric

Cause:
The incoming conductors to the Transformer have specific entry and exit areas on the enclosure

Resolution:

SquareD/Schneider Electric Low Voltage Dry Type Distribution Transformers are front cable entry and exit unless otherwise noted on the approval drawings.  The approval drawings show the only acceptable conduit entry locations for each enclosure manufactured.  Under no circumstance is it acceptable to route conductors over a Transformers core and coil assembly.  Approval drawings, by catalog number, are available via the Field Office.
