Conductive Concrete is a cementitious and carbonaceous material that is a proven solution in the prevention of infrastructural conductivity grounding difficulties, speeding up, improving performance, and ensuring the safety of telecommunication cabinet earthing.
How it Works
Conductive Concrete grounding electrodes are easily installed by spreading the dry powder in a strip over and around a conductor in a horizontal trench. When the trench is refilled, Conductive Concrete absorbs moisture from the surrounding soil and hardens to become part of the grounding electrode.
Surge impedance is reduced by more than 50%. The surge impedance of the Conductive Concrete electrode is particularly low during the first critical 0-0.1 µsec of the surge. Fast response provides enhanced protection for sensitive equipment. Significant advantage over other grounding methods.
Conductive Concrete electrode resistance is 60-70% lower than bare copper counterpoise wire. Resistance of the 5m Conductive Concrete electrode is the same as the 20m long bare copper wire. Ideal contact with the soil is achieved because Conductive Concrete conforms to the shape of the trench. The effective surface area of the Conductive Concrete grounding electrode is about 25 times larger than the counterpoise wire.
