Truck/Trailer Accessories/Components

Ground sense system

The 672C Garnet Posiground from Armstrong Equipment is a ground sense system that verifies trucks are properly grounded during fluid transfer while onsite. Grounding is achieved by securing two clamps to grounded metal objects at least 20 feet apart. In the event a ground is lost, it has the ability to activate a horn, and after a set amount of time it can shut down the transfer of fluid until a ground is relocated. The control system determines the operational status of the system by identifying whether there is proper grounding. It also assists in troubleshooting in case of a system malfunction. The spring loaded grounding reel assists the operator to disburse and retract the ground cable and clamps to the required length. 800/699-7557; www.vacpump.com.
