The Earth-Rite OMEGA II is a compact panel mounted static grounding module that can monitor a range of resistance values, based on the grounding application and installation requirements of specific processes.
The Omega II monitors the resistance of the static grounding circuit for processes where a risk of static charge accumulation on the equipment counld result in an incendive electrostatic spark within locations that have potentially flammable atmoshere present.
It is specified primarily for applications where an alternative means of ground status indication is provided, e.g. via panel mounted indicators or remote indicator stations, as opposed to more regular grounding solutions in the Earth-Rite range.
The DIN rail mountable module can be located in an electrical panel mounted in a non-hazardous area or inside an EX(d) certified enclosure located inside the hazardous area.
The Omega II is designed specifically for monitoring the static grounding of process equipment and has 4 resistance set points depending on the installation and operating characteristics of the application. It can also be installed to monitor the resistance of bonding circuit and lightning protection grounding points.
Up to four (4) OMEGAs can be powered by single Newson Gale power supply.
