I am installing a single phase transformer fed by a 480/277 panel, I have no problem with the primary side however since the faceplate is damaged, do not know the correct jumpers for the secondary. I installed a jumper between X3 and X2 however I do not know how this transformer derives my neutral or how to derive my two 120 volt circuits I need to feed the small sub panel. I have only wired one other of these in 10 years I simply do not remember.

Thank you for the replies and detailed information.

I am going to opt out of the question as there are a couple of other experts here who have a better background on transformers than I do. I've only installed a few transformers as well and I don't want to guide you the wrong way. From what I remember, the "X2" connection is a neutral and the "X3" connection is a hot.

No need to reply back to me. You will be notified once another electrical expert picks up the question. Thanks...........Kevin:)
