Are most low voltage dry type distribution Transformers offered by SquareD/Schneider Electric rated for 60 Hz, 50 Hz, or 50/60 Hz?

Issue:
Thansformers are available in 50 Hz or 60 Hz configurations, or 50/60 Hz

Product Line:
LV Transformers

Environment:
Applies to Low Voltage Transformers by SquareD/Schneider Electric

Cause:
Domestic (USA) electrical systems are typically 60 Hz, overseas systems are typically 50 Hz

Resolution:

SquareD/Schneider Electric`s standard offering is 60 Hz rated. SquareD/Schneider Electric can offer Transformers that are rated for 50 Hz or 50/60 Hz (as 50 Hz units can be utilized on either 50 or 60 Hz systems), in which ``50HZ`` is typically part of the catalog number. An exception to that catalog numbering system is the Export Model Transformers shown on page 14-8 of the Digest 176 which are 50/60 Hz rated without ``50HZ`` appearing in the catalog number
