Line Gard PGFM (ELCI, Marine)

Category: Circuit Protection
Manufacturer: Airpax®

ELCI Marine Ground Fault Protection Sensing Module

The LineGard™ PGFM product family provides ELCI (equipment leakage) ground fault sensing and is designed and manufactured by North Shore Safety, a leader in innovative safety products.

The PGFM series operates in tandem with an Airpax™ LEL series, UL 489 listed circuit breaker, with shunt trip and auxiliary switch manufactured by Sensata Technologies.

The PGFM can be paired with an Airpax™ IDLNK breaker for applications requiring ignition protection. The combined assembly of the PGFM and an Airpax™ breaker meets the requirements of ABYC E-11 for ground fault protection and main shore power circuit protection.
The PGFM constantly monitors the current balance of the conductors (wires / cables) supplying power to the load.
When a ground fault of 27mA nominal (30 mA max) occurs, the PGFM uses the LEL’s shunt trip coil to signal the breaker to trip..
