Newson Gale has introduced the Earth-Rite Tellus II, an enclosure system that provides static earth verification for drums, intermediate bulk containers and other mobile equipment in hazardous-area operations.

The lightweight static dissipative polyester (SDP) enclosure can be mounted in all industrial flammable or combustible atmospheres and provides the operator with a bright-green flashing LED to confirm a positive connection to earth, as well as a pair of output contacts for interlock with pumps, valves and other control or alarm devices.

The intrinsically safe system — which comprises an indicator/junction box and a power supply unit/controller — is said to be simple to observe close to the point of use, for example, on drum-filling or mixing machines.

Key specifications

  • 10-ohm monitoring threshold for the pass/fail condition is said to conform to all major industrial static control technical standards and guidelines
  • Earth verification system is water and dust proof to IP66/Nema 4X
  • Operation is via a user-selectable 110–230VAC 50/60Hz supply
  • System ensures compliance with the best-practice guidelines of NFPA 77 and Cenelac TR 50404 for controlling static electricity

For over 25 years, Newson Gale has been in the business of protecting people and assets from the hazards of static electricity.

Newson Gale serves industries where processes that generate significant amounts of static electricity have the potential to ignite flammable or explosive atmospheres.The major industries served are:

-chemical/petrochemical manufacturing and distribution.

-pharmaceutical/clean room processes.

-paints,coatings and solvents manufacturing and distribution.

-food and beverage production and distribution.

Newson Gale’s commitment to research and innovation has led to the creation of patented industry firsts that optimise the safety of people and protection of plant assets.

Our solutions are divided into three flexible product categories that are specified for customers depending on the level of safety required to protect people and plant assets from the flammable/explosive hazard.The three categories are described as:

Earth-Rite:continuous static dissipative monitoring with positive indication and interlock control outputs.

Bond-Rite:continuous static dissipative monitoring with positive indication.

Cen-Stat:mechanical earthing and bonding devices and hazardous area accessories.

Depending on the country specification,our equipment carries ATEX,FM,IECEx and SIL2 hazardous area approvals and are fully compliant with internationally recognised best practise standards for controlling static electricity
