Shorting Style Terminal Blocks

General Details

Shorting Style Terminal Blocks

Shorting Style Terminal Blocks for Current Transformers are used to create an intermediate contact point between the meter and load where it is safe to perform wiring alterations.

Shorting Style Terminal Blocks are wired such that the negative leads of the current transformers are connected to the same node and tied to ground.

Typical applications are Control and Power wire transmission, CT Tap changing, and meter servicing.

Units come with a Standard Front Cover for enhanced safety, and available in either 4 or 6 or 8 pole configurations.
