Which container has the ground fault?
The benefit of a high resistance grounding system is that it allows operation when a ground fault occurs. It is technology that has been used in industrial applications for over 50 years and has proven to be very beneficial. Monitoring of the grounding resistor is done with an NGRM500 that provides diagnostic information and datalogging during the voyage.
Restricted Space and harsh environments
Space onboard is very limited and the equipment experiences the mechanical issues common in a marine environment – salty spray, vibrations, sways and swell. The harsh environment easily justified adding continuous monitoring to the grounding system.
The original design was tested, and the control compartment size was further reduced on subsequent units to allow for easy transition from one vessel to another.
