“We were very happy with Bender’s technical support and the assistance provided to come up with a solution for the ground rail shoe contamination issue. The Bender solution proved successful after identifying a dead spot on the conductive ground rail shortly after installation.”
- Jon Smith and Stuart Reynolds, Engineered Systems
Additional factory testing confirmed proper operation of two GM420’s on two separate bridges. After the initial trial period, Engineered Systems Inc. installed limit switches to ensure the contact shoes stayed in their holders, adding additional safety. In many industrial facilities, debris can build up on the rails and cause connection issues with the grounding shoe. Since this creates a hazard to safety, Engineered Systems crane service company wanted to find a solution. Adding a Bender ground monitoring relay, like the GM420, has created a safer system.
