New Littelfuse Knowledge Center Helps Customers Prevent Ground-Fault Hazards

December 2, 2022

Littelfuse, Inc. introduces a new ground-fault knowledge center (Littelfuse.com/What-is-a-Ground-Fault) for engineers, electricians, maintenance workers, and others to create a safer electrical environment. The resource portal provides educational material including defining ground faults, explaining misconceptions, and offering solutions on how to prevent ground-faults. This information ultimately helps workers minimize the damage to electrical equipment when low-level phase current returns to the supply transformer through a ground-return path.

“Ground-fault protection is an important consideration in the design of industrial distribution and utilization systems,” stated Debra Jayson, Littelfuse Industrial Business Marketing Director. “The majority of electrical faults are ground faults, and with this new knowledge center, Littelfuse can educate people to help increase workplace safety and prevent damage to electrical equipment.”

The Littelfuse ground-fault knowledge center includes:

  • What is a ground fault and the purpose of grounding
  • The different types of ground faults and how to prevent them
  • Misconceptions regarding ground faults
  • What are ground-fault relays and how do they work
  • Benefits of using a grounded system over an ungrounded system
  • What are special-purpose ground-fault circuit interrupters
  • Ground-fault applications, videos, data sheets, and more
