Bender Inc. Introduces New Portable Ground Fault Current Instrument

Bender Inc. of Exton, Pa., recently introduced its new RCT 3000 portable ground fault current instrument.

The hand-held unit can reportedly detect current leakage as low as 1 mA and operates through the use of a nickel-cadmium battery.

The unit is said to have an accuracy of 1 percent of the measured value which is read out on a 4-1/2 segment LCD display. The unit is equipped with a visual and audible alarm that will sound when the measured current exceeds a set reading which is adjustable over the range 0-9,999 mA.

The unit can also be mounted with clamps which are available in different sizes up to 4-inches throat diameter. A larger size clamp is able to accommodate up to three 400 MCM conductors which would allow leakage currents in 3-phase/460V motor circuits up to 300 hp to be determined.
