First and foremost, would be the increased safety using the Easywire system. The fact that the shunt is now located within the current transformer rather than the meter, means that the possibility of high voltages during open circuit conditions is no longer a factor, due to the secondaries always being loaded. As well as this you have components built in to provide you with complete redundancy should a resistor fail. This offers complete ‘peace of mind’ to the engineers installing or maintaining these products. Another added advantage of this is that we no longer require current transformer shorting links.
