According to the docs, the 120/240 volts @2KVA IS the secondary.
The primary is 240/480 volts. It's a dry-type distribution
Transformer, normally used to derive 120 volts for a set
Of controls, in an electrical system that is primarily 240
Or 480 volts only... of course, there are many other uses, but
That's the #1. Personally, I would configure both primary and
Secondary for 240 use, and use it as an isolation transformer.
(used to see those a lot in order basic electricity books).
