Grounding & Bonding
Grounds from a battery, engine, switch-panel
negative bus bar, bonding system, auxiliary power
generator, underwater ground plate, a ship’s 120V
safety ground and LORAN signal ground all meet at
one point. This point must be a heavy bus bar or
bracket with bolted connections.
Thomas & Betts Grounding & Bonding products
meet exothermic, compression and mechanical
requirements. A ground is a critical part of an
electrical system. In some extreme cases,
redundant grounds are used to ensure services and
operations are not disrupted and that equipment
and personnel safety are not put at risk.
