Connect to earth for complete protection from electric faults

  1. 1. Leading The Nation Towards Electrical Safety Connect to earth for complete protection from electric faults Discharging current to the ground via a low resistant path is basically earthing for which you need to connect the exposed part of the equipments to the ground. When we talk of earthing – for an equipment there are two parts that does not carry current. The parts that do not carry current are the frame and neutral. These two parts of the equipment would be earthed and hence earthing is classified into – neutral earthing (also called system earthing) and equipment earthing. Either the neutral or the equipment frame is connected to the conducting part of the ground with the help of conducting wire.
  2. 2. Leading The Nation Towards Electrical Safety When it comes to any electrical installation, now-a-days safety comes as a primary demand for every individual owing to the complexity in the configuration of the equipment and the wiring. In this regard, a properly designed earthing system is a necessity of providing a low resistant path for efficient and satisfactory working of electrical appliances. Long ago were the days when we do practice conventional grounding methodology employing copper or GI plates positioned amidst of salt and charcoal for conducting these fault currents to the ground. Conventional earthing is a temporary solution for achieving low resistance path and hence they are less in practice these days. Moreover they do not maintain moisture content which leads us to water the system after regular intervals leading to its faster corrosion. As this technique demand periodic maintenance and early replacement we are up with maintenance free earthing system that would overcome the demerits of conventional earthing.
  3. 3. Leading The Nation Towards Electrical Safety Advanced Earthing system consist of earth electrode, i.e. copper bonded rods engineered to endure the most enviously damaging environments. Talking of the nuts and bolts of this grounding electrode, it is basically well finished low carbon tensile steel rod with minimal coating of 250 microns of pure Electrolytic copper. Copper coating is to offer abridged corrosion which would also magnify the working life up to 3 to 4 times when compared to conventional electrodes. The process of installation of earthing system is carried out with ease. A hole of appropriate size is dug and copper bonded rod is positioned exactly at the bottom. The surrounding area in the earth pit is then filled with slurry of enhancement compound and water mix. Then connections of the exposed and conducting metallic parts of devices are made using exothermic welding technique after which the installation is secured using an earth pit cover.
