Split core CTs

Split core CTs can be opened and placed around the conductor without having to disconnect the conductor or disrupt power. Split core CTs are more expensive than solid core CTs but the added convenience makes them the preferred choice for retrofit installations.

Contact Packet Power for additional current ratings.

Solid core CTs

Solid core CTs feature a permanently closed core. Installing a solid core CT requires disconnecting the conductor to pass it through the CT core. Solid core CTs are a cost effective solution when service disruption is not an issue.

CT wire harnesses

Flexible, preconfigured wire harnesses can cut installation time in half and fit into tight spaces inside panels.

The wire harnesses accommodate side-by-side, inline or DIN mount panels with 19-25 mm (3/4" to 1") center-to-center breakers. They are ideal for use when all circuits in a panel will be monitored.

Wire harnesses arrive already connected to the CT Interconnect Board. The wire harness leads are labeled and end in a quick disconnect that makes it easy to add CTs immediately or over time.

Wire lengths and lead labels vary by harness type. CTs are sold separately.

Mid

  • 16-CT harness
  • For DIN-mount panels
  • CT Interconnect Board placed at the DIN rail mid-point in the panel
  • All CT leads are the same length and are labeled sequentially

 

Common harness placements

Panel types vary widely by the number of breaker positions and how they are arranged. Packet Power flexible CT wire harnesses can accommodate any breaker configuration. Simply identify the number of CTs, the type of panel and where you will place the CT Interconnect Boards in relation to the circuits being measured.

Here are the most common harness placements by panel type and the corresponding CT harness type. 

In cases where a wire harness doesn't work such as when circuits being measured are not evenly spaced, loose CT leads can be used.
