Hot Circuit Detector: Uses And Benefits

A hot circuit detector is useful for protecting miners and preventing damage throughout a mining site. These are systems that can protect a wide range of devices and ensure that employee safety is kept as a paramount importance.

Hot circuit detectors prevent motor damage, minimize downtime and prevent accidents. The system will monitor mine motors from reverse sequence damage, monitor phase rotation indicator, loss of phase function and more. Circuits can be monitored and tripped and the system is self powered for easy coupler mounting and panel mounting.

By having a system in place for simple voltage indication and production monitoring, there can be a consistent form of monitoring that stops difficulty of contacts and a series of other problems that can be faced with hot circuits.

The device offers indication of all phases and the phases that are lost. The phases which are missing and the trip out in the circuit can be determined. The unit comes in a 480 vac or 120 vac for simple detection at every level. It can be configured to meet the needs of intermediate devices as well as suit the needs of voltage monitoring for up to 38 kv. The unit offers fusing that is incorporated and required by MSHA.

Environmental data on board comes from a series of indicators, reverse sequence improvements and tripping conditions solutions. The LED indicators offer complex monitoring alongside storing and operating temperature controls that suit every mining condition.

If you are interested in upgrading your mining safety, or you would like to enjoy improvements for your mining site equipment downtime, these are crucial solutions for your business. Added safety measures from these tools will offer you uncompromised solutions for your business and improvements for ongoing efficiency.
