Weldsafe 4000 Features

• 10 mA trip point for ground fault sensing
• CT loop monitoring
• 1 Ohm single trip for ground checking
• Voltage build-up detection
• End-of-line resistor for crush fault detection
• Harmonic filtering

The Weldsafe 4000 combination ground fault current and ground check relay has been designed to provide sensitive ground fault protection and continuous ground checking for ac, 50-60 Hz fixed or portable equipment. The Weldsafe 4000 provides a high degree of network protection and increases personnel safety as well as minimizing risk of fire. The Weldsafe 4000 can operate on single and three phase grounded, and resistance grounded power systems.


Ground Fault Sensing Operation
The Weldsafe 4000 protects operators and equipment from dangerous leakage currents that may occur when a circuit is energized. The device has harmonic filtering to prevent nuisance tripping and a pick-up response time of < 25mS.
Ground Checking Operation
The Weldsafe 4000 has several protective methods to ensure proper grounding of fixed or portable equipment. If the unit senses any one of three possible fault conditions, it activates the alarm relay (K2) with a response time of < 30 mS.

CT600 Series Current Transformers
The Weldsafe 4000 operates together with a CT600 series current transformer. There are different sizes available ranging from 1” to 8” depending upon the size of the load conductors passing through window.  Only the load carrying conductors pass through the C.T.. The ground wire must remain outside the C.T. core. It is also important that the cables passing through the C.T. be as straight as possible to minimize the possibility of core saturation.
