Why Does This Matter?
Grounding is a critical functioning part of the electrical system. T­he integrity of your grounding system is dependent upon
your connectors withstanding the environment in which they are installed. Achieving this reliability, while maximizing
safety and speeding installation ensures a grounding system that will provide you with the greatest value.
With the StructuredGround ™ Direct Burial Compression Grounding System, you benefit from a connector that meets the
highest performance specification in the industry, faster installation, ensured safety in any weather condition, with a
minimum investment in tooling and inventory.
Tested to IEEE 837, Rev 2002 and 2014
The IEEE Green Book, “IEEE Recommended Practice for Grounding of Industrial and Commercial
Power Systems (IEEE Std 142-2007)”, states: “(i)t is recommended that [grounding] connections
meet the requirements of IEEE Std 837.” The purpose of the “IEEE Std 837 for Qualifying
Permanent Connections used in Substation Grounding” standard is to give assurance to the
user that a connection meeting the requirements of this standard will perform in a satisfactory
manner over the lifetime of the installation.
IEEE Std 837 goes beyond the testing required by UL 467 and CSA 22.2, requiring sequences
of environmental simulations including: lightning strike, freeze-thaw cycling, and chemical
corrosion, to provide better assurance that the grounding system will remain viable
throughout its installed life.
Panduit’s enhanced crimp process, using patented technology, achieves the latest performance requirements and continues to
provide unmatched verification of corrosion resistance. See page 8.
Reduces Installation Costs
n Can
be installed in any weather – from extreme cold to wet conditions – the StructuredGround ™
Direct Burial Compression Grounding System will keep your construction project on time and on budget
n Wide
range-taking components can go from #6 to 500 kcmil wire with only five parts in the GCE
and GCC families, minimizing inventory and tool investment
n Only
a single die required to crimp each element
n Full
inspectability – die index numbers are embossed on the connector body during the crimp
process allowing the inspector to quickly and easily identify a proper installation
Increases Job-Site Safety
n No
weld connections – special protective equipment or extra clothing is not required
n Full
inspectability – die index numbers are embossed on the connector body during the crimp
process allowing the inspector to quickly and easily identify a proper installation
n Hydraulic
and battery operated compression connection crimping tools reduce operator stress and fatigue
