BCPM 250A branch Split-Core CT

Hi Everyone,

I have a question about BCPM split-core type CT amp ratings.

I have a project that has many 250A branch circuits. BCPMSC E-type meters would be suitable for a few of their panels . Except that according to the BCPM datasheet, split core branch CTs are only available up to 200A. However the specifications for the split-core branch CT and split-core main auxiliary CT seem to be the same - 0.333V output.

BCPMSCCT3          200A split-core 1.8m lead

LVCT00302S          300A split-core 0.333V output

Thus, my question is, can I use the 300A split-core CT (LVCT00302S) on my BCPM branch circuits?

Re: BCPM 250A branch Split-Core CT

Unfortunately, the branch input are using current mode CTs and not LVCT. So you cannot do this substitution.

I will check what we can offer to meet your needs.

Re: BCPM 250A branch Split-Core CT

Hi Arnaud,

This project we are working on has 5 panels that have multiple branch cirucits requirements.

22, 14, 14 ,8, 21 branches, (3-phase 380V, 100 ~250A)

Please let me know if you have any suggestions.
