Instrument transformers are current & voltage devices that are widely used in Measurement and protective applications to change the current & voltage levels from one magnitude to another. They are also used for isolation between high voltage power circuit and measuring instruments. This not only ensures safety of the operator but also of the end device in use.
The Current Transformer is an instrument transformer used in AC power systems; designed to reduce high voltage current to a significantly lower value; ie. 5A, or 110-120V that can be measured using smaller rated measuring instruments such watthour meter, ammeter, or protection relay.
KS Instruments can design and manufacture high accuracy LT Current transformers for measuring and protection applications in tape wound, resin cast and ABS enclosure constructions. KSI has a wide range of catalogue products to suit all needs. These products have been validated by our clients for high efficiency, robust performance and long service life.
Here are some things we will need to know before we can provide a quote:
Current Transformers play the role of measurement and protection circuit. As a Measuring Current Transformer, it can lower the high current in control panels & panel boards at a pre-determined ratio such as 100:1. Offered as Ring type, also called as window type, allow bus bars or cables to be passed through the CT and act as a Primary for the CT. The safe, low VA burden and click fit CT makes it very convenient to use in retrofit applications without disconnecting any cable. This saves down-time period and revenue loss which would occur due to shut down of plant during installation of CT.
These Current Transformers in protective applications are used to activate the protective relay in case of a fault current and isolate a part of or the full system from the main supply.
