Current Transformers
Safe, Reliable High-Voltage Current Transformers That Never Need Maintenance
Current transformers are used in electrical grids for measurement and protective applications to provide signals to equipment such as meters and protective relays by stepping down the current of that system to measurable values. Their role in electrical systems is of primary importance because the data sent by current transformers represent the heartbeat of the entire system. RHM International’s proprietary dry type Current Transformers are unique as they provide a rugged, reliable option for high voltage metering and protection operations up to 550 kV. Our high quality Current Transformers are based on a unique U-shaped bushing design for the primary winding. The bushing is a very fine capacitance graded insulator. In a new approach to dry designs, our advanced proprietary HV DryShieldTM composite insulation system uses reliable materials like PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) and silicon rubber to provide a low stress, uniform field distribution between the conductor and the outside structure. The primary and secondary windings are independently sealed resulting in a totally weather resistant design. Oil or gas is not required for insulation. Therefore, our environmentally friendly Current Transformers completely eliminate the risk of explosion and toxic leaks. Considering the difficulty for our customers to schedule circuit outages for routine upgrades and maintenance, the high cost of maintenance, and environmental issues, RHM International’s Current Transformers provide exceptionally low cost of ownership and offer you peace of mind as they are truly maintenance free.
