Ask a Question

Are the Current Transformers (CT) offered by SquareD/Schneider Electric rated for use with voltages over 600 volts?

Issue:
Current Transformers are required for Medium Voltage applications

Product Line:
LV Transformers

Environment:
Applies to Current Transformer (CT) products by SquareD/Schneider Electric

Cause:
SquareD/Schneider Electric does not offer Medium Voltage (over 600V) Current Transformers in the North American market

Resolution:

The CTs offered by SquareD/Schneider Electric are not rated for circuits having a phase-to-phase voltage greater than 600 volts.  In certain Medium Voltage applications, additional insulation is applied between the primary and secondary windings to make them serve at higher voltages.   However, SquareD/Schneider Electric assumes no responsibility for damage of equipment or personal injury caused by the Current Transformers operated on circuits above their published ratings.
