Detailed Product Description

Grounding Detector Unit is an electronic device which ensures safe& reliable grounding of generated electrostatic charges duringloading or unloading operations of inflammable hydrocarbon products.The unit gives a local visual indication for proper grounding &transmits the signal to a remote loading control automation system.


  • Local visual indication for proper or improper grounding.
  • Ensure minimum capacitance & resistance of vehicle to ground.
  • Zener barrier protected grounding loop for additional safety.
  • Remote signal to loading control system.
  • Internal heater ensures satisfactory performance in extreme cold, rain & damp weather conditions.
  • Special rugged clamp for connection to vehicle.


Whileloading & unloading of inflammable hydrocarbon liquids it isrequired to maintain an equal potential between the filling structure& the vehicle tank in order to avoid spark hazard due toelectrostatic charges. The grounding detector consists of an electroniccircuit housed in a flameproof enclosure. A special crocodile clampmade of anti-spark material connected wit an abrasion & oilresistant cable connects the unit to the vehicle. Green & red lampplaced in a glass window show a proper or improper grounding condition.Potential free relay contact outputs from the unit are connected via acable to the remote control system. When the grounding clamp of theunit is connected to the metal surface of the vehicle the device checksthe capacitance & resistance of the vehicle towards the earth. Theinternal grounding loop resistance is reduced to less than 1 ohmensuring perfect grounding of the vehicle. At the same time the redlamp switches over to green signifying proper grounding & internalrelay is actuated to give potential free contact outputs to the remotecontrol system. The vehicle grounding loop is zener barrier protectedfor added safety. In case of a break in the grounding loop duringloading operation the unit de-activates the relay signaling the remotecontrol system to stop operation in order to avoid hazard.

Aninternal heater in the form of resistance is provided to emit enoughheat in order to maintain the internal housing temperature to 30o C toensure proper functioning in adverse climatic conditions such asextreme cold, rain & damp weather. The electronic circuit of theunit is designed to detect abnormal conditions such as clamp connectedto parts already grounded or the clamp connected to insulated surfaces.
