Abstract: FREE Webinar Registration: Considering the devastating impact of ground faults and the arc flash hazard, electrical safety is an essential priority for every business. Electrical reliability and safety starts with the decision on which grounding system to employ.
In North America, the standard grounding system since the 1920's to the mid 1970's was the ungrounded system and some 60,000 facilities still today operate in this manner. Their reasoning is simple - process continuity. With a ground fault active on the system the ungrounded distribution system allows for the process to remain operational.
Join this webinar for a historical rationale for the application of ungrounded electrical systems, their advantages and disadvantages along with detail on the proactive steps on upgrading an ungrounded system to a safer, more reliable and advanced High Resistance Grounded system.
We will compare ungrounded to high resistance grounded systems, and identify the application of insulation monitoring, Advanced HRG technology increases reliability of the electrical system and workplace electrical safety. Daily saving lives, money and profits!
This webinar will be of interest to anyone responsible for workplace electrical safety, as well as process continuity and reliability.
3 important things you will learn:
- Operational and safety differences between Ungrounded and High Resistance Grounded systems.
- Why the Ungrounded system was popular and why specialists are today replacing with High Resistance Grounding.
- Quick and easy steps on how to convert to High Resistance Grounding technology.
