What is the mounting clearance on the Energy Efficient Transformers?

Issue:
Clearance requirements for Transformers from external obstructions

Product Line:
LV Transformers

Environment:
Applies to EE type LV Transformers by SquareD/Schneider Electric

Cause:
Transformers radiate heat when in operation, which must be dissipated

Resolution:

Older Transformers had specified a 6 inch clearance from any obstruction from the front and rear ventilated opening. The EE Transformer clearance has been reduced to 3 inches of clearance from any obstruction from the front and rear ventilated opening. Newer Energy Efficient (EX Type) require .5" from rear and sides to any obstruction.
