In an electrical installation, an earthing system or grounding system connects specific parts of that installation with the Earth’s conductive surface for safety and functional purposes such as:
LEC’s grounding rod also known as Chem-Rod is ultra-efficient and can be used to replace as many as 10 conventional rods. Advantages are:
Grounding rods and their accessories provide high fault current capacity for LV, MV and HV substations, towers and other distribution applications. They can be used for both overhead and underground networks to achieve optimum earthing for distribution and transmission. Grounding method used consists of grounds rods spaced about 10 m (33 ft) apart and driven into the earth. If available, other grounding objects are interconnected, such as utility systems building electrical ground systems, etc. However careless installation of grounds for other equipment, such as cable TV, security systems or generators can lead to damage. Thus regular inspection and maintenance is important.
