Becker mining offers a wide range of ground monitors that are designed to provide an early warning of hazardous or potentially dangerous conditions. Becker constantly innovates to improve the level of protection against ground faults. Every product they produce is built to the highest quality standards and will provide reliable performance.
Some of the main ground monitor technology offered by this company includes:
The C4334 Ground Trip Relay is designed for use in systems where high levels of insulation resistance are required. It features a trip relay control circuit with adjustable trip settings, allowing the user to adjust the set points without opening the cover. The 6314-023 ground monitor is a combination ground monitor and fault relay, providing both visual indication of the presence of proper grounding, as well as automatic tripping of the circuit when the ground level falls below an adjustable set point. The 6314 combines the convenience of an LED display with the peace-of-mind protection provided by a trip relay.
The C 3013 is a draw-out ground monitor that is used in larger power system applications. It features an adjustable trip set point, and a spring-loaded door with a red LED to alert the user of any ground faults or low insulation resistance levels. The C54 ground monitor is a high-voltage ground monitor specifically designed for use in mining and tunneling applications. It is designed to detect ground faults on systems operating at voltages up to 35kV.
Becker also offers two types of ground monitors for continuity type and impedance type fault detection. The Continuity Type Monitors are designed with a built-in relay that will trip the circuit when any ground fault occurs. The Impedance Type Monitors measure the impedance between two points, and a built-in relay will trip the circuit when an excessive ground fault occurs.
No matter what type of ground monitor you need for your application, Becker has a reliable solution that can fit any budget. With their wide selection and high-quality standards, you can be sure that you are getting the best protection for your system.
