Applies to Low Voltage Transformers by SquareD/Schneider Electric

Transformers create magnetic fields when energized


In general, the low frequency magnetic field surrounding loaded Transformers is comparable to that surrounding other ordinary electrical distribution equipment, such as cable trays, panelboards, conduit, switches, etc. Therefore, it is not normally correct to single out Transformers amongst other electrical equipment as a special EMF consideration. Consult with the manufacturer of the susceptible equipment for their recommendation on distance required from electrical distribution equipment.
