New ground montitoring system Farado ®
The driver of a road tanker is delivering raw material to chemical plant.
The unloading bay is equipped with simple grounding clamps which the driver is using. He’s faithfully attiching the clamp on his truck but unfortunately he’s using the plastic wheel guard. As a result the vehicle remains completely ungrounded, when connecting the hoses a spark occurs – danger!
With the Farado® Ground monitoring system this would not have happened. The device is report if the clamp is not connected properly. To avaoid misuse or manipulation e.g. by attaching the clamp to other metal parts, the Farado is measuring the capacity. Only if this value is in a preset range the unloading or loading is allowed. Farado can therefore recognize if the clamp is really connected to a road tanker.
The integrated relais can be used to control valves or pumps so that unloading or loading would stop immediately if the grounding is interrupted.
The transponder key enables the user to modify the settings and use the by-pass mode in special cases. The Farado can be supplied with a self retracting reel. Furthermore there is a version available for grounding conductive FIBC.
