Safely lifting loads and controlling cranes

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 monitoring or residual current monitoring - ensure high levels of safety and availability.

Marinas

Mitigate risks of electric shock drowning

Marinas, yacht harbours

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 to 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 to use.
