Ground-Fault Products for Solidly Grounded Systems
Ground-fault products are used to monitor grounded systems (ungrounded and grounded) for fault currents or residual currents. The sum of all conductors except the protective earth conductor is measured by means of measuring current transformers.
In general, ground-fault monitors (RCM - residual current monitors) are used to send a message to the user even before reaching the shutdown threshold of the GFCI. Ground-fault monitors detect deteriorations of the insulation level at an early stage and in a reliable way.
