Do 3-phase transformers have an option for a Faraday or Electrostatic shield?

Published date: 15 June 2020

Issue:
Availability of Faraday or Electrostatic shields for 3 phase transformers

Product Line:
LV transformers.

Environment:
Transformers

Cause:
Product features

Resolution:
Electrostatic shielding is no longer offered on our standard dry type 3-phase transformers. This change was made in January 2016, as part of the transition to our 3-phase EX type transformers to meet the 2016 code requirements.

A Faraday shield/electrostatic shield was part of the EE K rated transformers, or any transformer with the "IS" suffix in the catalog number. This suffix is still an available option on our EE type single phase transformers.
