Ports

Electrical Safety for Ports and Harbors

Gantry cranes

Bender works in close cooperation with the manufacturers of gantry crane systems to optimize protection against electrical faults and guarantee the safety of the operating personnel. Ground-fault monitoring - insulation or residual current monitoring - ensures high security and availability levels. The increasing health and safety requirements on machines and installations require comprehensive measures to protect people and devices against possible hazards. For instance, insulation faults in a controller must not result in hazardous movements of a machine. If there is a high availability requirement, it is also appropriate to consider this aspect when selecting the type of system and the protective measures. 

Bender provides electrical safety solutions for ports to ensure safety for personnel and equipment. With machines like gantry cranes, the issue is more focused on protecting against electric shock, protecting personnel, and preventing fire. Reliability is also an essential factor and plays a significant role in the control and auxiliary circuits, particularly those with voltages below the permissible touch voltage of 50 VAC and 120 VDC.

Terminals

Using ground-fault monitoring, Bender ensures the highest possible level of safety for people and systems and guarantees a high level of system availability during embarking and disembarking or loading and unloading. A ground fault can represent a life-threatening hazard for personnel and a hazard for the integrity of assets and the availability of electrical power.

Marinas

Today's recreational marinas are filled with potential electric hazards, such as refrigerators, lighting, and electric boat motors. Ground faults are a leading cause of death, injury, and equipment damage in marinas. Fault current leaking into the water creates a risk of boat corrosion and electric shock drowning (ESD) for people swimming in the water.

Bender's MarinaGuard is the result of years of direct involvement with the marina industry. Continuous monitoring for ground faults helps mitigate the risks to people, boats, and equipment - while providing a simple, streamlined system for technicians and harbor owners.
