I am going to be incorporating a 1200A breaker into a 5KVA

Customer Question

I am going to be incorporating a 1200A breaker into a 5KVA transformer. We'll be removing the distribution panel and installing lugs to trans to run cable from trans to breaker to distrib panel. Is there anything I should be aware of ie: lug separation, insulation etc.

Hi, I'm Mike G and will be glad to assist you. The separation is as set by the places where you can attach the lugs. Grounding from the transformer, continuous to the new panel is one of the main considerations. I suggest a grounding conductor in addition of conduit bonding for the installation.
