When you purchase a replacement or retrofit transformer, most likely its high-voltage and low-voltage connections will not line up perfectly with your existing infrastructure due to differences in transformer models, ratings or designs. Low-voltage bus bar connections have to line up perfectly parallel, with matching bolt holes, and be bolted together without distorting forces to ensure maximum conductance and prevent arcing. Each installation configuration is unique, usually requiring precise custom bus work to properly and safely connect the new transformer with your existing infrastructure.
The time to discover this is when you order your replacement or retrofit transformer, not when you try to install it. It can take several days for a local contractor to design, fabricate and deliver new bus work, during which time your installation will be delayed This delay may have significant cost consequences, and it is entirely avoidable.
