BGFT - Battery Ground Fault Tracer

Supplier: Megger playlist_addCompare

The Battery Ground Fault Tracer is an economical, manually-balanced instrument that identifies, tracks and locates ground faults in ungrounded dc battery systems-on-line. It is particularly effective in high electrical noise environments, as the strength of the test current can be adjusted.

Price Guide (Inc GST): POA

The Battery Ground Fault Tracer accelerates fault location by eliminating trial-and-error procedures and because faults can be located without going off-line. It is particularly useful in any industry where supply of power for operating measurement, communication and control equipment is critical.

  • Ground faults in ungrounded dc battery systems easily located
  • Operates in high electrical noise environment
  • Simplifies fault tracing by identifying fault characteristic (resistive and capacitive) magnitudes

The Battery Ground Fault Tracer, which consists of a line-operated transmitter and a portable, battery-powered receiver, determines fault magnitude and severity. The transmitter connects to the battery bus and station ground.

Incorporating a resistance and capacitance bridge, the transmitter can be used to determine the faults magnitude and severity prior to tracking the fault.
