Earthing control system for mobile and fixed plant components

Newson Gale Earth-Rite OMEGA II

The OMEGA II system allows you to include electrostatic earthing monitoring as part of larger process plant control and monitoring systems. The plant can only be started up with a resistance of less than 16 Ω, otherwise the system will not allow the plant to be started. The system can be programmed between from 2 to 600 Ω.

The OMEGA II system is designed to be mounted on a rail (35 mm, DIN standard) in control panels. The system gives the possibility to verify the resistance between two points, and also offers a relay switching function on the output with a user-defined setpoint.

System application

  1. Monitoring of the temporary earthing condition of all movable conducting elements of the process plant
  2. Continuous monitoring of permanent plant elements in zones 0, 1, 2, 20, 21, 22
  3. Control of simple devices, such as float switches in dangerous areas


It can be difficult to ensure proper earthing of the rotating tank or rotor because, due to the design of the bearings etc., it is not always possible to rely on the connection between the shaft and the machine body. A common method of ensuring continuity of the earthing circuit is to use a earthing monitoring module to test the earthing connection of the tank or rotor by means of a pair of carbon brushes or a slip ring on the shaft. Such modules can also be used to test the connection of the major permanent plant components, such as large tanks for flammable liquids, to the ground.

Electrostatic Earthing – the offer

Earthing control systems

Earth control systems
with process lock (tanks, big bags)

You can use them in the field of earthing monitoring of e.g. road tankers, railways, big-bags, as well as components of process plants. Earth-Rite systems verify easily and safely that the stored loads are properly discharged to the ground through a monitoring unit with a signal lightning diode. If the earthing is not performed properly, the controllers block the process.

Multiple elements earthing control system

earthing control system

The MULTIPOINT II system is a device designed to control the earthing of up to 8 self-acting or interconnected system components at the same time. According to the guidelines of international standards for the control of unwanted static discharges, the correctness of earthing will only be confirmed by the system if the resistance of the earthing node on each channel is less than 10 Ω.

Clamps with earthing control

Clamps with earthing control
(IBC tanks, drums, big-bags)

We can offer you clamps with monitoring the state of earthing of barrels, tanks, etc. These solutions, in addition to earthing the equipment operating in production rooms, by means of a monitoring unit with a signalling diode, easily and safely verify that the charges accumulated on the equipment are properly discharged to earth.

Simple earthing clamps for single- and two-core cables

wires, spools

Earthing clamps can be used in two configurations – as a set of two simple clamps connected with each other by a spiral cable, or as a connection of the clamp to a earthed container and a ring clamp, which is located at the end of the cable, to a earthing strip.

The electrified human body is one of the most serious sources that pose a fire or explosion hazard in industrial conditions. An example of a solution that checks footwear for its ability to dissipate electrostatic charges before an employee enters an area with flammable atmospheres is the Sole-Mate shoe control system.
