It features automatic operation, can be used on live battery systems and has the unique capability of detecting, tracking and locating multiple faults on a battery system without having to resort to sectionalizing.
This is accomplished by injecting a low-amplitude 25 Hertz test signal on either the positive or negative side of the power bus and tracking the signal with one of several available clamp-on sensor probes.
A fault simulator also is provided with the instrument, allowing the periodic verification of the resistance and capacitance ranges of the BGL.
- Locates ground faults on floating battery systems
- Operates on live battery systems
- Multiple fault detection and tracking
- Automatic operation
- Battery operated
The BGL allows tracking and locating of ground faults on live or dead battery systems. Its locating ability is only limited by the accessibility of the battery cable.
