Bare copper conductor
EN 60228 / IEC 60228 (Construction and tests)
Electrolytic, annealed, stranded, bare copper conductor, class 2 according to EN 60228 / IEC 60228
- N/A (bare copper)
Type of installation:
Fixed installation for grounding, bonding and earthing intallations.They are specially designed for ground and earthing networks.
Terranax copper bare conductor must be joined to steel electrodes with an electrolytic copperbath(or earthing ground electrods, rods, ...etc.) using an aluminothermic welding, or with devices withtightening screws, connection clamps or similar devices, ensuring a perfect connection betweenelements (bare copper conductors and electrodes).For use buried. Not allowed to use in aerial installation.
Ground wiring is a required action in industrial and domestic applications, such as operation of
production systems, transport and distribution of electrical energy. The most important reasons by
which a correct installation of ground wiring must be:
1.-To protect people from electrocution.
2.-To balance potentials between the components of a same electrical system.
3.-To reduce the difference of potential between ground and the structures that can accumulate
4.-Enable safe way to ground against currents produced by atmospheric unloadings and rays.
5.-Enable connection of low impedance between the parts of an electrical system, in order to
coordinate the protection apparatuses.
6.-To minimize communication systems interferences.
