Earthing & Bonding
Electrical “Grounding” has two parts: an “earthing” and a “bonding” function.
Effective earthing is a necessity for all electrical and electronic systems. It provides low resistance path for fault current, shield from external surges, maintains equipotential protection system, provides a path for dissipating energy from external source and act as a reference for protection system.
Effective bonding is needed to allow current to flow seamlessly, assuring that a circuit breaker will trip or fuse will blow during short circuit or overload scenario. Bonding is the way of joining of two electrical conductors together such as wire to wire, wire to the pipe, or between two Types of equipment. Bonding ensures equipotential between two points.
