Earth-Rite Multipoint II
The MULTIPOINT II can simultaneously monitor the grounding of up to 8 separate items. When a low resistance to ground of 10 ohms or less is detected it provides a visual indication for each individual item. It has 11 relay outputs, 8 for each item, 2 group relays, and 1 fault relay.
The Earth-Rite RTR is a static grounding and interlock system for tank trucks. During loading and unloading applications the system performs the following checks:
- Check 1: Determines if the clamp is connected to a tank truck
- Check 2: Ensures that it has a connection to a verified ground
- Check 3: Monitors the resistance between verified ground and the tank truck is less than 10 ohms
When the three checks are met it provides two output contacts that can be used to automatically start and stop your process.
