In a grounding system, the ground electrode provides the physical connection to the earth and is the instrument used to dissipate current into it. There are two main types of electrodes. “Natural” electrodes are intrinsic to the facility and include metal underground water pipe, the metal frame of the building (if effectively grounded), and reinforcing bar in concrete foundations. “Made” electrodes are installed specifically to improve the performance of the grounding system and include wire meshes, metallic plates, buried copper conductor and rods or pipe driven into the ground. The ground rod is the most widely used grounding electrode. ERICO® is one-of the leading manufacturers of ground rods and offers a complete line of rods and accessories to meet the needs.
