Issue
Difference between Solid Core (or continuous core) vs. Split Core CTs

Product Line
LV Transformers

Environment
Applies to Split Core Current Transformers by SquareD/Schneider Electric

Cause
In some installations, the measured conductor cannot be opened for insertion of the CT

Resolution
A Current Transformer with a split core allows you to easily install the CT around the existing bus or cable conductors, thus eliminating the need to disconnect, move, and reconnect the bus or cable.
