Who are the manufacturers of Grouser ?
Time schedule for supply of equipment ?
Minimum of 180 days from the date of placing written confirmed order (Check for
actual delivery schedules
What is the warranty offered ?

the date of manufacture and supply – Float Power Systems & Controls offer additional
180 days extended warranty and other benefits (Sure buy customers can seek details
using contact form)
What is the maximum fault which the instrument can detect ?
Sensitive to faults as high as 68k ohm
How is the fault traced ?
By using the sensing probe attached to the receiver in synchronization with the
Transmitter ( Seek for live on-line demonstration)
What are the problems which has been over come during the course of the
development of the product ?
Grouser will not interfere with sensitive equipment connected to the DC system and is
unaffected by ripple, or switching transients/ Grouser has overcome problems such as
spillover, inductive coupling, interference, capacitive coupling, spurious noise, etc.
What is the Principle of the Grouser ?
The principle of operation is straight forward inject small current at a specific
frequency, trace only the current flow at that specific frequency, where the current
flows to earth is where the fault or faults are.
Are the sensing heads available in one size or in different sizes ?
Four different sizes are available from 6mm, 30mm and 45mm, these are supplied as standard. A 55mm and 95mmhead are available as an optional extra.
What are the Frequencies at which the Grouser operates?
Battery powered transmitter outputs 9 volt RMS open circuit, 50mA short circuit. The
output frequency is pre-set at between 11.0 Hz and 12.0 Hz and factory matched to
the receiver frequency.
The unit can operate on live circuits up to 300 volt DC, it is fuse protected and has
semi rotary controls to prevent accidental operation.
The frequency range is factory set between 11.2 and 11.8 Hz, this low, very precise
frequency enables the Grouser to operate with a clean signal even in “noisy”
conditions. There is also a 10 turn capacitive balance control that enables the
operator to cancel out capacitive signals and view the fault signal independent of
What is Grumbler Instrument used for ?
Grumbler for LIVE LV/MV Cable Identifier The instrument is designed to assist users
in the identification of cables
Will Float Power Systems & Controls be able to import any equipment ?
Yes,any equipment , testing and measuring instruments as applicable to the Power
Sector and Telecommunication sector, and such equipments where the customer
places a specific request while providing the technical specification of the required
What are the other products that Float Power Systems & Controls would be able to
Refer Product Line .
Some details with reference to Analyzer Unit / Tracking Unit?
Ground faults on battery operate DC Multi feeder Distribution System are very difficult
to find without proper instrumentation and training.
Analyzer Unit - Tracking Unit
Has been designed with a new microprocessor control instrument with a single
purpose “to analyze and locate even the most difficult faults on battery operate DC
Multi feeder Distribution System”, for the safeguard of the DC system integrity.
The Ground Fault Analyzer and Tracking instrument make use of a very small
interrupted and synchronize DC signal to analyze and locate DC ground faults on
multi feeder distribution system .
