Split-Core Current Transformer Standard and Revenue Grade Accuracy
Square 0.75 in. window opening Accu-CTs are available with rated currents from 5A to 250 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 revenue grade models.

- Graphs show typical performance at 23°C, 60 Hz
- Graph shows a positive phase angle when the output leads the primary current.
The accuracy specifications apply over the full operating temperature range (-30°C to 55°C) unless otherwise noted. Standard models are calibrated for optimum accuracy at 60 Hz. For use with 50 Hz services, we recommend ordering with Option 50Hz. The following accuracy specifications may vary when other CT options are specified. For details, refer to the individual option descriptions.
These specifications are for 60 Hz operation or for 50 Hz when Option 50Hz is specified.

- Includes a Calibration Certificate
- Order option C0.6,N if you need the C0.6 accuracy, but do not need a certificate of calibration.
- Not available for 5 amp Accu-CT models.
Standard models are calibrated for optimum accuracy at 60 Hz. Option 50 Hz calibrates for best accuracy at 50 Hz. Option 50 Hz models have the same accuracy specifications as standard models and are also available in combination with Option C0.6 (selected rated amps) for higher accuracy. See ACTL-0750 Option 50 Hz for more details on the accuracy differences.
The Accu-CT can be ordered with custom lead lengths. For example, Opt FT=50 for 50 foot leads. We also sell 100 ft coils of lead wire to allow for field extension of the leads. See CT Wire. 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.
