Introducing Bender’s new SmartDetect iso415R – the compact insulation monitoring device for use in ungrounded systems. It combines easy operation, multiple interfaces, and flexible application options in a space saving design.

Simple solution for control circuits, manufacturing, and plants

The ISOMETER iso415R is a simple solution with communication technology for control circuits (DC 24 V – AC 230 V) in various forms of machinery in industrial settings, food processing, and other industries. It is for ungrounded systems for compliance with NEC Article 250.21 and CE Code Rule 10-400, and meets IEC 61557-8 requirements. It can also be used in main circuits up to 400 V in smaller ungrounded systems without variable-frequency drives (VFD).

Simple installation and app setup

For maximum ease of use, the settings can be changed in two ways: on the device itself or with the Bender Connect App on a smartphone via Near Field Communication (NFC). A response value, Modbus address, time delay, relay function, and other settings can be configured even when the product is offline, before mounting and commissioning. These custom settings can be stored as a template, making it convenient to establish configurations for as many devices as desired.

Simple communication via Modbus RTU

The new iso415R features a wired Modbus RTU interface. In addition to the traditional relay contact for alarm signalling, the Modbus protocol has proven to be a very reliable interface for the secure transfer of data. The interface enables bus communication and the relay contact enables compatibility with existing installations.

Compact, space saving size

The compact iso415R is the width of a circuit breaker at 18 mm (0.7”) which means it is perfectly suited for limited space environments. Despite its small size, it features a double connection to ground to continuously monitor the ground conductor. In the event this conductor is interrupted, an alarm is triggered. This also applies to the connection to the monitored system. All of these features make the ISOMETER iso415R an impressive yet simple solution for many ground fault monitoring applications in machinery and plant engineering.
