Ground Kits

Ground kits are designed to provide electrical contact between the outer conductor of the transmission line and either a tower member or a separate conductor as a lightning path towards earth. Transmission lines should be grounded along the vertical run near the top and bottom and at the entrance to the equipment shelter or cabinet. However, you might have to provide four ground kits per line, an additional one for the midpoint of the cable, if the height of the line exceeds 200 feet. Carefully check your client’s grounding specifications.

Ground Kit 2A section of the coaxial cable jacket is removed and the ground strap is tightly fastened to the outer conductor according to the manufacturer’s procedures. The connection is then wrapped in butyl rubber tape and covered with vinyl tape for weatherproofing. This material is provided with the kit. The terminal is then attached to a buss bar or tower member. The attachment lugs are either factory or field attached. Field attachments can be either crimp on or screw on connections. Manufacturers have various offerings. If you are responsible for providing the grounding kits, make sure the type that you order meets your client’s grounding specifications.

Most ground kits are sized for the cable size, but universal kits are readily available and are typically priced higher; however, they provide the contractor with lower inventory costs and ensure that their employees have the right kit in the field to complete the project. Clip on and hard shell kits are also offered.
