Current Transformers (CTs) for Metering:
Solid Core & Split Core
To enable energy and power measurements, the WEM-MX meter requires voltage and current feeds. The primary current
needs to be reduced to a level that can be measured by the meter. Current Transformers (CTs) reduce the primary current
and provide a secondary of 5 Amperes. Energy Tracking also provides current transformers that have a 0.333VAC
secondary. The WEM-MX has a base accuracy of 0.2% and the final system accuracy is based on the type of CTs and
operating environment. In a noisy environment, CTs with a 5 Amp secondary are the ideal option due to their low
susceptibility to noise. Alternatively, if the CTs are mounted far away from the load to be measured, we recommend
using the 333mV current transformers which are more cost effective and do not suffer from degradation over long distance wiring. If the distance is greater than 20 feet, we recommend using twisted shielded cable. Please contact our technical support staff for guidance.Solid Core
Energy Tracking offers both types of current transformers.
Solid Core: This type of current transformer is typically used where power can be shutdown and is low cost.
Split Core: This type of current transformer is used where power cannot be shutdown. The primary current
carrying conduit must be insulated for safety reasons. Installation must be done by a trained electrician.
In both CT types, the secondary terminals must be short circuited or connected to the meter before the primary
circuit is energized.
Current Transformers with 333mV Secondary: They are available in solid core and split-core versions.
Please specify primary amps and window size. Available window sizes are 0.75", 1.25" or 2.00".
Bus bar CTs size: 3" X 5".
