Instructions for handling, transport, storage and commissioning
of current transformers for measurement, type FT24-x.xxX
Type transformers FT24-x.xxX they are very heavy objects in relation to their volume. Therefore, the handling and transport of such products will be done with care, so as not to cause injuries to the body of the maneuverer of any kind. The rules of labor protection regarding the handling of heavy objects will be strictly observed. Direct contact with the ground of the transformers will be avoided, especially in conditions of high humidity.
Transportation of type transformers FT24-x.xxX it will be done in normal atmospheric conditions, avoiding contact with atmospheric precipitation and following the special specifications ("avoid rain", "attention to fragile object", "no overlaying", etc.) marked by a label on transformer package, where applicable.
Storage of type transformers FT24-x.xxX it will be done in closed spaces with environments free of humidity, highly corrosive substances, chemically active substances, flammable or explosive vapors and without electrically conductive dusts.
Putting into service:
At the time of commissioning of the type transformers FT24-x.xxX, their location in a space that respects the ambient temperature level will be considered in order to be included in the insulation class in which they were made, elements that are specified on the product label.
When commissioning, the corresponding circuit connection must be observed, in accordance with the markings on the transformer terminals and the connection instructions for these types of transformers. Only multi-wire (corded) cables or connecting rods, the section of which corresponds to the rated current specified on the product label, electric slippers of appropriate dimensions, with the insulation distance on the surface between the slippers, etc., shall be used.
