When SELV outputs are required to operate control equipment and other electronic devices, a step-down transformer is needed to convert from 120V or 277V to 12V. Offering a safer work environment, the SELV isolation provided by Signal’s LT Transformer Series eliminates potential shock hazards. The LT277-50-12 is ideal for 480V, 3-phase 4-wire systems, where line voltage to neutral is equal to single-phase 277V 50/60 Hz. The LT120-50-12 is designed for single-phase 120V 50/60 Hz supplies.
The LT Series is easy to mount and can be hardwired via standard ½" conduit hardware and a straight box connection. Signal’s design features a corrosion-resistant surface coating that is environmentally resilient, with insulation Class B 130°C 1446. All the lead connections are 18AWG UL 1015. The LT Series is UL recognized to North American Harmonized standards: UL5085-1-2 and CSA C22.2 No. 66. With rugged construction at a reasonable price, Signal’s experienced engineering team has utilized the latest software in a transformer design to develop the LT Series.
