Grounding, Bonding and Lightning and Surge Protection for Battery-Based and Alternate Technologies
Protect your energy storage systems from lightning and surge damage when you choose a leading provider of grounding, bonding and power connection solutions that are compliant with UL and IEC standards.
nVent ERICO connects you to electrical and overcurrent protection products used on many of today’s battery-based, thermal and compressed air energy storage technologies. Get all the components required for your safe and reliable operation, including battery connections, flexible copper busbar, power distribution blocks, grounding braids and surge protection devices.
Protection of energy storage systems and personnel demands a systematic approach to minimizing threats caused by transients, from the ground up. We will help you safeguard your investments with proven methods and products.
Proper bonding is essential to create an equipotential plane between service grounds and equipment during fault and transient conditions. We offer grounding busbar in standard sizes and can custom design to your specifications.
Ground Rods and Grounding Couplers
From industry-leading copper-bonded ground rods to solid copper, stainless steel and galvanized rods, we have the ground rod solution you can depend on, including grounding couplers.
nVent ERICO Cadweld exothermically welded connections provide a permanent, molecular bond that will not loosen or corrode. The connections are designed to maintain for the life of your energy storage installation and are certified to IEEE 837.
Grounding and bonding braids and other mechanical grounding connectors are also available from nVent ERICO for connecting energy storage systems correctly.
Theft-Deterrent Grounding Solutions
Theft-deterrent composite cables are conductors that function as copper conductors but incorporate an outer steel layer that is difficult to cut. These conductors are ideal for energy storage applications with exposed electrical grounding leads.
Lightning Protection Systems
Our lightning protection series includes conventional and enhanced options for preventing costly damage to your energy storage systems and battery connections.
Surge Protection Devices
Power, control and communications circuits are often disrupted with electrical disturbances from switching of electrical loads, electrical noise or the occasional induced transient. Surge protection devices from nVent ERICO help you avoid the consequences of hazardous overcurrent events
