Does the Tesys T have Class 2 ground fault protection?

Issue:
The Tesys T can detect ground faults. Does it provide Class II ground fault protection?
 
Product Line:
LTMR## (Tesys T)
 
Environment:
Mulitfunction Relays
 
Cause:
There are different levels of ground fault. A very high ground fault should not be cleared by the associated contactor. Faults of this magnitude need to be cleared by a properly rated device located upstream. In order to ensure that this is properly coordinated, the trip function of the overload's ground fault circuit must be inhibited above the contactor's interrupting capability.
 
Resolution:
Yes, the Tesys T (or LTMR) overload relay does meet the requirements for Class II ground fault protection as defined in UL 1053.
