Instrument transformers play a crucial role in the management of power delivery systems. They provide the inputs to measurement, protection, and control equipment, making them an integral part of ensuring efficient and safe power transmission and distribution. With the ability to accurately measure and control electrical current and voltage levels, instrument transformers help power systems operate at optimal levels and provide protection against electrical faults. It is essential that instrument transformers are accurate, reliable, and perform with a long-service life. This is particularly important when they are used by power utility companies, where the consequences of inaccurate or failed instrument transformers can be significant, including power outages, equipment damage, and even safety hazards.
Straton Electricals is your reliable source for a wide range of low voltage instrument transformers. Our low voltage dry type transformers, including ring type current transformer, rectangular type, and wound primary type, are engineered for maximum safety and precision up to 1.1 kV. Rigorously tested for reliability, these transformers provide accurate voltage and current measurements, ensuring precise metering, protection, and relaying. Approved by leading power utility firms, our low-maintenance transformers offer a reasonable return on investment. Discover our LT current transformers in resin cast for enhanced performance and durability. Trust us for top-quality, safe, and reliable low voltage instrument transformers.
In the realm of power distribution, Low Tension Current Transformers hold a vital position. These specialized devices play a crucial role in transforming high currents to manageable levels, making them essential for accurate measurement and protection.
Window type, Ring type and Wound type are three different designs of LT CTs, each with its unique characteristics and applications. Here’s a brief technical differentiation between these types:
Window type CTs have an opening in square or rectangular shape, that allows the bus bar carrying the current to pass through the center.
Ring Type CTs have a circular or toroidal shape with a hole (ring) in the center, through which a cable or an armoured cable passes through.
Wound type CTs have both primary and secondary windings wound around the core.
These Low Tension Current Transformers (LTCTs) are encapsulated in epoxy resin. This encapsulation enhances the durability and reliability, making them suitable to use in harsh and challenging operating conditions.
Extensive field studies and usage have shown products to have a longer average operating life and very high reliability measures.
