How is the S48897 Neutral CT actually installed in the equipment?

Issue:
How is the S48897 used?

Product Line:
Circuit Breakers

Environment:
Applies to the S48897 Neutral CT that is used with 6-pole Masterpact NW breakers with LSIG trip unit

Resolution:
At higher amp ratings, the switchgear will sometimes use parallel runbacks per phase to feed a high amp 6-pole Masterpact breaker (2 bus bars per phase). In these cases, there will also be parallel neutral bus (2 bus bars for the neutral). In the S48897 are two neutral CT's, and these are mounted in the parallel neutral path (one per bus). The output of the neutral CT's are connected in series, and that feeds the correct amount of neutral current into the trip unit (see document 48041-082-03).
