In this post I’m going to talk about the relevance that grounding systems have in the installations, explaining the meaning of grounding, what does it offer, how to identify it and briefly mentioning it’s applications in the different systems. It’s a topic that it’s mostly believed as well known but actually it is more complicated than what we think. And most of all a bad functioning will cause higher harms.
A grounding system consist in the connection of electrical and electronic equipment to the ground in order to avoid the harm of our equipment in case of a dangerous current surge.
Once we have seen all grounding system types, according to the National Electric Code (NEC), a regional adoptable norm for the safe installation of electrical wiring and equipment in the United States, each kind of connection must have different colours for it’s identification.
|Types of Grounding Systems||Colors|
|Grounding||Yellow and Green|
It is necessary to analyze where our installation will be located and it should be studied where are we going to place our grounding, if there isn’t one. Depending on the system that we are going to install, our grounding will go to a single or multiple points.
