Proper bonding is essential to create an equipotential plane between service grounds and equipment during fault and transient conditions. This equipotential plane provides a near zero voltage differential and serves to protect people and equipment during these events. The most popular bonding product in use today is the ground bar or bonding bar. Ground bars provide a convenient, single-point grounding and bonding location. Conductors are welded to the bar using a nVent ERICO Cadweld exothermic connection or are mechanically fastened by using lugs.
nVent can design and manufacture custom bars. In addition, the breadth of the product offering includes TMGB bars, which meet the requirements of TIA/EIA® 607 and conform to BICSI® recommendations. Our perimeter bus system allows for fast and easy field installation of halo and other perimeter grounding schemes.
