Earthing is included as a significant part of most electronic application, both in the electrical grid, and for electronics, train manufacture, transformer manufacture and automotive. Equipotential bonding of various electrically conducting objects for the protection of people and property. For the various purposes and needs, Elpress has adapted earthing systems to offer.
Elpress System Deep Earthing is particular useful for earthing when there is a need for a continuous measurement of earth plate values at the same time that the contact point is driven down into the ground.
The electrode consists of a copper line that is driven down by a system consisting of 0.8 metre long joinable steel pipes and a hardened steel tip at the front, which paves the way for the earthing wire and driving it into the ground.
The discharge resistance is continuously measured in one end of the line and when a suitable value is reached, the insertion is stopped and the last extension pipe is pulled up. Insertion takes place with the aid of a beater with an adapted hammer neck or a sledge hammer and striking sleeve.
• no jointing of earth electrode/earthing wire
• large area range: 16-95 mm²
• can be used for various kinds of wires
• corrosion resistant - very long lifetime
• control over wire and tip not striking rock
• possibility to continuously measure the discharge resistance
• few parts makes the insertion uncomplicated and reliable
• low cost and weight compared with other systems
Elpress System Railbond is intended for connection to rails. The connection provides a secure and reliable link for the contact between a terminal and rail for a signal or earthing connection
The tested programme, with references from several European countries and documented tests according to applicable standards, consists of terminals, crimping tool, driller and deburring tool in addition to Railbond.
Elpress System Earthbond is designed for simple application of earthing points in various materials and thicknesses. Equipotential bonding of metallic objects in vehicles, such as trains, cars and trucks are areas where Earthbond is used most.
System Earthbond consists of a threaded conical plug, a flanged bush and the calibrated hydraulic assembly tool VEB208 and connector units from the Elpress product range. Earthbond creates an electrical contact, while also creating a fastener for the bolt union. Application is rapid and user-friendly, and the risk of contact resistance in the earth point is also reduced.
System Earthbond now replaces existing variants of earth connectors via a tested and certified System
