The nature of large facilities and the desire for uptime lends perfectly to the need for additional ground-fault protection. Retrofitting existing switchgear can be accomplished to give users an indication of low-level faults and non-fundamental frequency faults and where to start looking for the faults. Running with a single phase to ground should be minimized to reduce unplanned downtime. It isn’t a get-out-of-jail-free card. 


Join us for a webinar to discover Bender’s unique technology and explore some real-world applications with our industry experts.
