Switchgear is important in the rail industry and one of the most common forms of grounded DC switchgear is the type 64 ground relay which we carry at Swartz. The SWARTZ Type 64 Ground Relay functions as a high resistance grounded DC switchgear protection device. The 64r relay is intended to warn personnel of "ground" and "hot" fault situations in DC switchgear and rectifiers while also protecting equipment enclosures. Through exceptional performance and operational dependability, these high resistance relays deliver outstanding results. Some of the features that make this product superior include: solid-state components, rugged construction, and self-diagnostic capabilities. There are a number of features that set our relay apart from the competition include internal power supply, transient surge protection, and the ability to detect AC or DC "hot structure" faults.
Internal power supply means that the relay does not require an external power source and can operate on a wide range of DC inputs. This is a critical feature in applications where space is limited or during an emergency. Transient surge protection prevents damage to the relay from sudden changes in voltage and helps to ensure the long-term reliability of the unit. The ability to detect AC or DC "hot structure" faults is a key safety feature that allows the relay to warn personnel of potential hazards.
Swartz ground relays are available in a variety of configurations to meet the specific needs of your application. We can create custom monitoring solutions to suit the needs of your business and ensure that you can be protected against any type of grounding issue.
The onboard alarm system will provide you with the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your equipment is safe and that any problems will be identified immediately. This is an essential piece of safety equipment for any business that relies on DC switchgear. The voltage sensing trip system has been bypassed by grounding or when the relay’s self-diagnostic feature determines that an internal failure has occurred. The relay also alerts personnel when leakage or fault occurs between the bus and structure (hot structure). Normally, the output is connected to a lockout relay to automatically de-energize the entire switchgear train in the event of a fault.
Swartz type 64 ground relays provide reliable protection against any type of grounding issue. With features like internal power supply, transient surge protection, and the ability to detect AC or DC "hot structure" faults, you can be sure that your equipment is safe and that any problems will be identified immediately. This is an essential piece of safety equipment for any business that relies on DC switchgear and primarily in the rail industry.
