The SEL-GFD provides the following features and benefits:
Thousands of SEL-GFDs in service today help customers around the world quickly locate ground faults.
Industrial Sites—Apply the SEL-GFD over a three-phase cable bundle at ground potential in live-front switchgear to identify faults on circuits feeding mining equipment, medical facilities, and other industrial equipment. The vinyl-coated sensor core and potted circuit components provide an excellent seal against moisture and humidity in challenging industrial environments. The split-core sensor installs on three-phase cables without the need to open the primary or interrupt vital industrial operations.
Underground Cable at Substations—Apply the SEL-GFD to an underground cable distribution circuit feeder before the feeder leaves the substation to identify ground faults in the underground section of the circuit.
Low Load Current—Choose a secondary reset option to power and reset the SEL-GFD from secondary voltage (120–240 VacL-N) at a transformer. The SEL-GFD reset and powering options provide a wide range of compatibility across various applications, especially where feeders are lightly loaded or there is no load present.
