With the new insulation monitoring device iso685-D, Bender is focusing on a new, innovative series of insulation monitoring devices that are state-of-the-art in relation to reliability, measuring technique, operability and design.

For the first time a high-resolution display is used in a monitoring device from Bender for the indication of the measured values as well as for making device settings. This display makes it possible to indicate the changes in the insulation values over time using a graph, the isoGraph. In this way the insulation value trend can be estimated and corresponding measures initiated.

The integrated data loggers save both the measured values and the device error and alarm messages in their entirety for the recommended device service life (up to ten years) with exact allocation of date and time. Event-based fault analysis is therefore possible in conjunction with additionally acquired system measured data.

Due to the internal resistance of 124 kΩ and a maximum measuring voltage of ± 50V the measuring current is only ± 400µA. By means of pre-defined measurement profiles the iso685-D can be very easily adjusted to the system to be monitored. Special profiles for inverter applications already include integrated suppression of interfering system fluctuations

Systems with leakage capacitances of up to 1,000µF can be monitored using the iso685-D. Continuous monitoring of the protective earth conductor as well as the improved measuring technique, which ensures the insulation faults and the system leakage capacitance are measured more accurately and more quickly, provide additional safety.

The iso685 provides continuous coupling monitoring as well as a voltage and frequency measurement on the system to be monitored due to the coupling to all active conductors. Systems up to max. DC 1,150V can be monitored without additional couplers.

A commissioning wizard also simplifies initial commissioning.

Three digital inputs, two digital outputs as well as an analogue output are available as interfaces. The digital inputs and outputs can be programmed as required. The RS-485 interface also makes measured values available on the BMS bus for other display devices and the values can be read. Due to the built-in Ethernet interface, Bender service can support you with configuration, troubleshooting and/or fault analysis.

Furthermore, the usage of plug-type terminals ensures efficient installation.
