The ground monitoring device ensures that tank containers, drums, road tankers, rail cars and IBCs are correctly electrostatically grounded during the loading of flammable liquids and powder. The device provides a conductive connection to the ground and monitors in parallel the quality of the electrostatic grounding. This guarantees that the electrostatic charge remains at a safe level and that no explosion hazard is generated by uncontrolled energy discharge.
•Monitored electrostatic grounding of tank containers, drums, road tankers, rail cars, IBCs and helicopters during loading
•Continuous monitoring of correct grounding
•Plastic enclosure (IP66)
•Potential-free change-over contact for signalling to the process control system and external control devices
•Insulated point of suspension
•For use up to SIL 2 (IEC 61508)
