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.
