BATTERY GROUND FAULT LOCATOR
- 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
This instrument was developed to detect, track and locate ground faults on battery systems – without resorting to sectionalizing! Model BGL tracks and locates ground faults on live or dead battery systems. To save hours of unnecessary troubleshooting, the BGL readily differentiates between the resistive fault currents and capacitive charging currents. This feature allows the instrument to detect and track leakage paths, even in the presence of surge-suppression capacitors.
