The earth electrode must safeguard the safety of the electrical system. It depends on a good connection to the surrounding soil and the earthing system. Failure of the earth electrode can lead to dangerous touch voltages. There may also be a risk that important electronic equipment does not work or is adequately protected against overvoltages.
There are various methods for measuring the transition resistance and the quality of earth electrodes. We adapt the measurement method according to the customer's wishes and the scope of the facility. As a customer of Trainor, you get full follow-up by qualified personnel with a high level of expertise in measuring methods and equipment. The result of the inspection is analyzed and documented in relation to the current regulatory requirements for earthing systems.
In FEF:2006 , FEL and NEK 440:2015 there are specific requirements for checking the earthing system. Among them, important and exposed parts of the earthing system must be checked periodically, and at least every ten years.
