Every Grounding Application is Unique. We Make Safe, Reliable, Quality Solutions to Meet Your Needs
Grounding and bonding needs vary according to each specific application. The grounding and bonding requirements of telecom grounding, power system grounding for C&I systems, power utility substations, transmission and distribution systems, and cathodic and lightning protection can vary greatly. In all cases, the purpose of a high-quality grounding and bonding system is to:
- Protect people
- Provide protection in the event of unintentional contact between live conductors and bonded/grounded parts
- Ensure maximum safety from electrical system faults and lightning
nVent ERICO has the experts and experience to select the ideal grounding and bonding solution for your application from the ground up.
Why Grounding and Bonding is Important
It is a fundamental fact that current flows through lowest path of impedance. The task is to ensure that electricity, including faults and lightning, flows to this point with maximum safety to people, while maintaining the reliability of equipment. Therefore, we must ensure the safe, controlled flow of electricity with minimum voltage drop to earth in all cases.
Electrical systems are all around us and our everyday lives depend on these electrical systems performing at their best without interruptions. Despite electrical designers’ best efforts, electrical ground faults, electrical transients and other disturbances can, and often do, occur in building electrical distribution systems.
Create a trusted, reliable connection for any installation requirement.
