Excessive Conductor Heating

Cabling attached to the transformer can have excessive heating that causes conductor damage.

Check: Solution:
Check conductor connections to make sure they are. Tighten conductor connections. Replace conductors if they are damaged.
Verify conductors are properly sized. Replace conductors if they need to be sized larger.
Check conductor insulation rating to make sure it can withstand the high tempertures within the enclosure. Replace with cabling with higher ambient rated conductors.
Verify conductors aren’t placed above the coils where the warmest air will rise. Reposition conductors in enclosure to avoid the hottest air existing from the top of the coils.
