Residual current monitors
BENDER is one of the world's leading partners for electrical safety. The new LINETRAXX® devices with SensorPRO combine the best high-resolution measurement technology with open communication in a minimum of space. They offer new functionalities and are suitable for industrial applications, building automation and data centres, among others.
Intelligent measurement technology in a minimum of space
The new LINETRAXX® devices with SensorPRO feature the open interface RS-485 with Modbus RTU protocol and ensure fine-grained measurements up to 100 kHz. At the same time, they save space in the control cabinet and are easy to install.
Tailor-made solutions for all requirements
The modular LINETRAXX® devices with SensorPRO consist of a current transformer module with electronic modules which can be plugged on as needed. The single-channel, AC/DC sensitive compact LINETRAXX® devices are particularly suitable for use in final circuits.
High availability and update capability
Whether current DGUV regulation 3 requirements (German Social Accident Insurance regulation 3) or upcoming standards - thanks to the open interface and pluggable electronic modules, LINETRAXX® devices with SensorPRO are already prepared for predictive maintenance and future industry 4.0 requirements.

Against the background of key topics such as Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things (IoT), Bender is increasingly confronted with the requirements of modern applications. As a result, highly flexible solutions that cover a wide performance range are now usually required. Furthermore, there is an increasing demand in the markets for smart sensors that can be easily and quickly integrated into existing installations and systems.
An essential requirement for the products is therefore the ability to communicate – if possible via universal interfaces and protocols. To generate added value such as preventive maintenance and high availability from measurement data, the sensors must be able to transfer all values and states to higher-level monitoring solutions in which they are evaluated and interpreted/further processed. Additionally, data granularity is also gaining in importance, so that a large number of sensors that are as small and simple as possible are being frequently used in modern plants.

Market-driven solutions for modern applications
The requirements being placed on industrial systems and installations in terms of high availability are constantly increasing. This means that it is also becoming increasingly important to equip existing applications with monitoring technology so that downtimes can be reduced, for example by assisting with preventive maintenance. Options include installing residual current monitoring systems (RCMS), which also contributes to a reduction of the disconnection times required for insulation tests in line with DGUV (German Social Accident Insurance) Regulation 3.
