The universal single phase or three phase earthing device applicable on rectangular conductors (bus bars, platband), round conductors (flexible multicore conductors, rigid bars or “T” fixed points) and spherical pieces can be provided with one of the following phase clamps:
– Universal classic reduced phase clamp, CCRU type (casting from aluminium alloy);
– Universal classic normal phase clamp, CCNU type (casting from aluminium alloy).
Both phase clamps have a fixing system on the conductor, consisting of a mobile die operated by a tightening screw. This screw is provided – to its extremity – with a coupling system which allows a quick and safe connection at the insulating stick. The coupling system can be bayonet type (RO), bayonet type (DIN), hexagonal.
The earthing clamp can be classic (standard model) or with scrapping die (optional model), adapted to the short-circuiting current of the earthing device.
In single-phased construction, the earthing cable length varies between 6 and 8 meters, depending on the poaition where it is mounted the phase clamp.
In three-phased construction, the length of the short-circuiting cable (measured between the phase clamp and the connection point) varies usually between 1 and 2 meters, the length of the earthing cable (measured between the connection point and the earthing clamp) varies usually between 2 and 4 meters, depending on the poaition where it is mounted the phase clamp.
The cross-section of the earthing cable should by chosen depending on the required short-circuiting current.
This equipment is delivered in sets of three single-phased earthign devices or as a three-phased short-circuiting device, in a carrying bag or a transport case.
