Group Created with Sketch. Applications

  • The BEN 6000 is a high resolution, extreme digital fault recorder designed to monitor electrical signals in generation, transmission, and distribution networks and in industrial electrical energy installations
  • Unlike all other fault recorders, the BEN 6000 falls within the Extreme class, that is, it is designed to operate in the harshest of conditions. It has the unique benefit of providing the highest immunity levels in the world. As a result, a utility or power generation facility will never miss a record!
