Grounding & Lightning Protection

The primary purpose of grounding electrical systems is to provide protection against electrical faults. Lightning protection is designed to protect a structure from damage due to lightning strikes by intercepting such strikes.

Grounding Devices or Assemblies
Ground is a reference point in an electrical circuit from which voltages are measured. A protective ground device is an essential part of safety. Ground assemblies can be plug and clamp connectors that are both attached to a specified cable.

Lightning Protection
A lightning protection system is designed to protect a structure from damage due to lightning strikes by intercepting such strikes. It safely passes their extremely high currents to ground. The lightning protection system includes a network of air terminals, bonding conductors, and ground electrodes that are designed to provide a low impedance path to ground for potential strikes. They are used to prevent or lessen lightning strike damage to structures.
