Grounding/Lightning Protection

July 14, 2022 | 2 p.m. ET

Once again, lightning season descends with crashes, flashes and BOOM! Join us as we do a recap of the things to look for to help you get through that part of the year – we’ll discuss grounding (of course), but we’ll also discuss how much grounding is too much and why how the grounds are connected to each other is almost as important as if there are grounds at all. There will also be talk about the rest of the lightning protection triumvirate – properly installed surge protection and ferrites – and why they’re all important parts of a reliably designed system.
