What are current transformers (CTs) used for?
Electrocube current sensing transformers, also known as instrument transformers, are used primarily for power system wiring protection and power supply control in commercial jetliners, military aircraft and land-based defense facilities.
How do Electrocube single phase and multiple phase current transformers (CTs) work?
The donut-shaped, single phase instrument transformers and the 3+hole block, multiphase instrument transformers can be installed as a permanent part of the powering system or as a “clamp-on” design for temporary monitoring. The secondary current (generally much lower than the primary current) can be monitored or used as a “fail-safe” indicator to shut down the system during an over-current or under-current situation.
What are some features of Electrocube current transformers?
- Single phase CTs and multiple phase CTs designed and manufactured to client specifications
