Ground Fault and Equipment Leakage
Circuit Interrupters and Sensing Modules

In an exclusive business relationship agreement with North Shore Safety LTD., Sensata Power Protection will now provide our customers with LINEGARD® ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCI), equipment leakage circuit interrupters (ELCI), and ground fault sensing modules.

 
 
 

Ground fault: Should equipment or a person come in contact with a live (hot) wire, they become a path to ground, the result could be electrical current passing through their body, possibly resulting in damage, injury or death.

Typical GFCI's and ELCI's utilize latch-type mechanisms that can fail in the closed position, preventing the contacts from opening in a fault condition, putting human life and equipment in jeopardy. North Shore Safety (NSS) products utilize an electromechanical design that is immune to high mechanical shock and vibration, and if failure occurs, the contacts failsafe open, protecting the person or equipment from electrical shock as a result of ground fault. In addition, NSS products include added safety features, with options like manual reset for power loss and fault conditions, along with many NSS products being capable of achieving UL NEMA 6P compliance (withstand 600 psi of water spray and submersion in 6 ft of water for 24 hours minimum).

Ground Fault Sensing Modules
 
Voltage Ratings:

120VAC
208/240VAC passively (non-load bearing)

 
Compatibility:

Compatible with many Airpax LEL and 209 series with 1 to 3 poles, amperages from 1 to 50 Amps, with integral shunt coils.

Contact Sensata with any compatibility questions.

General Description :

North Shore Safety’s Ground Fault Sensing Module operates in tandem with a UL 489 hydraulic magnetic branch circuit breaker. The sensing module monitors an electrical circuit via an external differential current transformer. Upon a ground fault, it actively severs the load by means of an Airpax hydraulic magnetic circuit breaker (LEL Series) with an integral shunt coil.

All electrical circuits with voltages from any current-carrying conductor of 125VAC to ground are UL 943 Listed (GFCIs) while all other circuits with current-carrying conductors greater than 125VAC are UL 1053 Compliant (ELCIs). Custom trip levels (ie. greater than 6mA) for ELCIs are available through the factory. Additionally, custom breakers with various response delays are available (standard CB-trip delay for over-current is “motor-start”).

Product is available with automatic or manual “safe-start” reset features. The enclosure, when mounted with the supplied gasket, achieves a UL NEMA 4X wet location rating (withstands 600psi of direct water spray and submersion in 6 ft of water for 24 hours minimum). This module and breaker system is ideal for portable generator integration protecting all outlets on a generator and meeting the proposed requirements for generators under Underwriter Laboratory (U.L.) Standard UL2201 UL/cUL 943 Listed and UL 1053 Compliant.
