Webinar Date/Time: Tuesday, September 8, 2020 at 1:00 PM (CT)
This webinar will very briefly cover the history of man-made grounds and ground testing. Next will be a discussion of two basic methods of ground testing and then comprehensive coverage of the proper way to do clamp-around ground testing and common mistakes that technicians make when doing such testing. There are no calculations, and the only math that is even mentioned is Ohm’s Law.
Everyone understands the need for grounding, and most people understand the need for testing grounds. The advent of the clamp-around ground-tester made such testing quick and easy, but it is also very easy to make simple mistakes that invalidate the results.
After attending this webinar, participants will understand how to confidently perform clamp-around ground-testing quickly, easily and CORRECTLY.
