Cincinnati, OH – May 12, 2011 – Standex Electronics is pleased to announce that three of its current transformer models have received approval from Measurement Canada for Revenue billing applications. The trio of 200-5A transformers, which include models FCT-233-BLK, FCT233-BLU and FCT233-RED, are approved to the 0.3 BO.1 accuracy class with up to a 10-foot lead length of #16AWG wire, which is believed to be the longest in the industry. These Standex current transformers, which also have UL approval for the US and Canada, are ideal for use in electricity sub-metering in condominiums and apartments – as the sensing component within the metering system. In addition to sub-metering, time of use monitoring is also facilitated by the CT.
“We are delighted to receive this approval from Measurement Canada” said Dan Durbin, General Manager of Standex Electronics Canada (formerly ATC-Frost Magnetics). “To be certified for the purpose of revenue billing, current transformers require a very high degree of accuracy over the entire operational range. These are believed to be the only current transformers with a 10-foot lead length to attain this certification under the Weights and Measures Act.”
