What Are The Three Types Of Grounding Kit?
They are universal grounding Kit, compact grounding Kit, and tool-free grounding kit.
Universal Grounding Kit:
This is the most commonly used Grounding Kit. It is suitable to ground most feeder cables under most circumstances. It is comprised of a wire and a contact bar that connected by screws.
Compact grounding Kit:
This grounding kit is usually used outdoors. It has a waterproof cushion and is more waterproofing than universal grounding kit.
Tool-free grounding kit:
This is basically the same as compact grounding kit. It has no mechanical structure and uses clip for fixation only. We can install it with bare hand.
What Is The Main Difference Among The Three Grounding Kits?
It is the International Protection (IP) Marking. Common markings used to rank the grounding kits are IP67 and IP68. The first digit "6" in IP6X means "No ingress of dust"; the second digit "7" and "8" means "up to 1 m depth submersion" and "1 m or more depth submersion" respectively.
Universal Grounding Kit is compliant with IP67, while compact grounding kit and tool-free grounding kit both are compliant with IP68.
What Type Of Grounding Kit Should I Choose For My Cable?
To choose suitable grounding kit, you need to know your project requirements and service environment.
Use Universal grounding kit for indoors and all places that is not humid.
Use Compact grounding kit and Tool-free grounding kit for places that specifically require IP68 code. If your budget is sufficient, and you have a tight schedule, you can use tool-free grounding kit only.
Is There Any Difference Of Grounding Kit For Indoor And Outdoor Use?
Yes. For indoor use, we can just apply an insulation wrap with 3M vinyl insulation tape.
For outdoor use, we must make a waterproof layer with waterproof tape, like 3M 2166 or 3M 2228.
