Operating industrial robots and welding equipment safely
Medium-frequency welding systems are used in many production systems. These are generally welding robots which are fitted with the corresponding welding tongs. Simple, efficient monitoring of the system provides information about the fault current which is both meaningful and easy to interpret. This makes operating the system easier for the technical personnel and allows rapid response in the event of a fault. The AC/DC sensitive ground-fault monitoring devices from Bender are considered the leading technical solution.
They are built into the electrical distribution system before the weld converter and thus monitor the weld current circuit for fault currents. This means they protect you reliably against personal injury and damage to machinery.
