AcuAMPTM Ground Fault Sensors help protect people, products, and processes from damage that can be caused by ground fault conditions.
Good design practice and code require that all AC power systems be grounded. GFS series ground fault sensors are designed to work on grounded AC power systems.
This sensor monitors all current carrying conductors in grounded single and three-phase delta or wye systems.
GFS series ground fault sensors offer jumper-selectable setpoints of 5, 10 or 30 mA. This series is available in fixed-core models only.
Wide Range of Options: o Mechanical relay outputs with Auto or Manual reset o Use up to 14 AWG copper wires o Noise Immunity option for use in EMI/RFI sensitive environments
Setpoint Options: o Field selectable 5mA, 10mA or 30mA setpoints makes user adjustments fast, sure and convenient
Compatible with Standard Equipment: o Applicable on single- and three-phase systems o Ideal for use with shunt trip breakers o Magnetically isolated from monitored circuit and control power o Built-in feet with optional 35 mm DIN rail adapter available
Agency Approvals - UL 1053 recognized, CE certified
Personnel Protection (typically 5mA) o Detects sensitive ground fault conditions, which may be injurious to personnel and processes o Functions as sensor and alarm trigger when part of an overall ground fault protection system
Equipment Protection (typically 10mA or 30mA) o For applications where personal protection is not the primary concern o Higher setpoint capability helps eliminate nuisance tripping while still providing adequate ground fault detection to protect machine electronics
Regulatory o Meets requirements as stipulated by governmental and industrial regulatory groups for ground fault sensing
