I have 277/480 Y at work and I need to hook up an exit sign that uses 25V. So, I am planning to use a transformer, I assume 277/25V transformer. I looked up the code book which said, I need to ground a system if it is less than 50V, and if it is fed by a supply system of more than 150V. But, how do I system ground the secondary side, which is the exit sign? Run a grounding wire to concrete? Even if I did that, what do I connect it to? All the electrodes, the building metal structure, and water pipes are being used as electrodes for the building.
I'm not up on the finer code requiements on this sort of situation, but you could ground the 25V side by just linking one side of the secondary to the equipment grounding conductor (which would also be grounding the transformer frame).
