Split-Core Current Transformer Standard and Revenue Grade Accuracy
Oval Window Opening 1.25 x 1.77 in. is ideal for two parallel conductors. Available in three rated current ranges 150 A, 250 A, 400 A, and 600 A The 0.333 Vac output is very linear with the industry’s lowest phase angle error. All CTs Are Not the Same!
The patented Accu-CT split-core current transformer technology delivers exceptional linearity and low-end accuracy. Developed specifically for solar inverter, variable-speed motor drive, and other applications where there are large variations in current. The 100:1 turn down ratio of Accu-CTs is ten times better than industry standard CTs. The unique one-handed opening and closing mechanism makes installation a snap.
ACTL series CTs are available in both standard and revenue-grade accuracy models. A serialized calibration certificate can be requested for C0.6 and better accuracy revenue-grade models.
The oval opening can handle a single 750 kcmil (MCM) conductor or two 350 kcmil (MCM) conductors.

- Opt C0.3 CTs for use on 50 Hz electrical systems should be ordered with option 50 Hz for best accuracy.
The ACTL-1250 class 1.2 and class 0.6 series of transformers are not available with a 50 Hz option, because it is not needed. These models meet the accuracy specifications over the full range from 50 to 60 Hz. Class 0.3 series CTs should be ordered with option 50 Hz for best accuracy.
The Accu-CT can be ordered with custom lead lengths. For example, Opt FT=50 for 50 foot leads. We also sell extra lead wire to allow for field extension of the leads. Option FT does not affect the accuracy specifications.
The Accu-CT advanced options are generally not useful when ordering the Accu-CT for use with a WattNode® meter, but may be useful for other applications.
