Though lightning rods are the oldest form of lightning protection and still used today, in the past few decades advancements in technology have provided more options. Two major types include the Early Streamer Emitter (ESE), similar in approach to the lightning rod, and the Charge Transfer System (CTS), which takes a completely opposite approach to lightning protection.

Many times, engineers are given the choice between three types of ground rods: copper-bonded steel, copper clad ground rods or galvanized steel for grounding systems. However, one material reigns supreme when it comes to strength, service life and overall investment. Hint: it’s copper bonded steel. Read More..
Lighting protection systems are an above-grade conductor network designed along the lines of a Faraday Cage that is used to protect a structure from the effects of lightning discharges (direct or indirect). Read More..
A firmly designed earthing system is a part of importance in an electrical installation. Any equipment or circuitry needs to be protected by earthing against touch & step voltage. Not only in case of machinery, along with property, have personnel too needed a safeguard against dangerous fault currents. Read More..
You have taken the best decision of installing a lightning protection system like chemical grounding rod to your home. By doing this you know that it will protect people from electrical shock, help safeguard expensive electronic equipment, limit neutral to ground voltage and satisfy Read More..
Power surges are one of the most common dangers to your valuable assets, home, or work spaces. Although they are virtually unavoidable, appropriate surge protection can mitigate their impact. With exponentially increasing amounts of data captured, monitored and relied upon by businesses across all industries, these electrical surges and spikes can have a major impact […]
ERIC Earth Enhancing Compound is a blend of seven patented chemical compounds based on silicates and chlorides. When added to the earth pit, it greatly enhances the electrical conductivity of the soil, thereby reducing the earth pit resistance sharply to mere 5–15% of the original value, depending upon the soil chemistry. As a result, the […]
How Surge Protectors Work “When a sudden increase in voltage occurs, such as from a lightning strike or damage to a power line, a surge protector detects the excess current and safely diverts it through the house’s grounding path.” A simple statement and it sounds great, but what does it mean? How does a surge […]
Earthing is an integral part of all electric installations whether it is generating station, a transmission/distribution system or an industrial/commercial or domestic user. A properly designed grounding system ensures correct operation of protective devices on occurrence of earth faults or lightning strikes, safety of equipment and personnel and prevents build –up of electrostatic charges or […]

The term grounding or earthing means the connection of a part of equipment of appliance to the ground or earth. This connection is through a conductor of very low resistivity. Grounding basically done is of two type’s i.e. neutral grounding and body grounding. Neutral grounding is done to balance the supply load. Since due unbalanced […]
It’s no secret that the safest place to stay during a lightning storm is indoors. In fact, a home or other substantial structure like an office building serves as the best protection from a lightning strike. However, no residential home is immune to the threat of lightning strike damage. As more technology is added to […]
When discussing the components in an electrical grounding system, we often hear the terms “copper-clad steel” and “copper-bonded steel” used interchangeably. Though it may seem inconsequential, each term represents a different copper plating process, in which the copper is composite on the steel core. What Do Copper-Bonded and Copper-Clad Steel Have In Common? The reason […]
Lightning is a constant risk. A single direct strike can result in physical damage to buildings and cause catastrophic failure of sensitive electronic equipment. Lightning causes 22,600 fires per year and is the number one natural cause of system failures. As a result, these problems can result in substantial revenue losses. Telecommunications facilities are particularly […]
