What is a CSM Shield Monitor?

A CSM shield monitor is designed as a budget saving solution for monitoring shielded DC feeder cables. This is a unit that provides ongoing monitoring for insulation breakdown and problems within the power conductor. With ongoing circuit monitoring, the Shield monitor can work in conjunction with the installation and feeder cables to provide a self-contained level of protection for DC power inputs.

The two main types of faults that can be found within the CSM shield monitor can detect the grounded shield and the hot shield. The hot shield is a shield which requires ongoing reference with the negative rail and when the shield may exceed a safe margin. Any indication of unsafe insulation levels within cabling will ensure that the device produces a yellow LED light that can indicate insulation has been rendered unsafe.

The second full warning of the breakdown in the insulation cable will also make sure that a green light illuminates on the front of the panel when a fix for the output has occurred. The lights will deliver ongoing notifications and if conditions are perfect they will remain off.

Included with this CSM shield monitor is a reset switch, reset switch cover, ground leakage hot warning, sensitivity adjustment knob as well as a panel mount.

Getting one of these devices can help to make systems throughout your business much safer if you are in need of new monitoring solutions, we can make sure that you have the best in CSM shield monitor solutions to fit your business.
