The new EX transformers are built with a 30% higher efficiency rating, does that affect the amperage ratings on the primary and secondary?

Issue:
Do the higher efficiency ratings of the new EX transformers affect the amperage on the primary and secondary?

Product:
LV Transformers

Environment:
EX transformers

Cause:
Effects on load current in and out of the transformer

Resolution:
No, the amperage ratings are still based on the KVA and voltage ratings regardless of the efficiency. KVA /voltage/1.73 = A for 3 phase and
KVA/voltage = A for single phase. This calulation is for both the primary and secodary.
