Elastimold® Grounding Device (GAD) Safely Provides Direct 600A, 25kA-Rated Ground Connection


Thomas & Betts Product Line Available for Standard C-Clamp and Ball-Stud Grounding

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Elastimold® Grounding Device (GAD) from Thomas & Betts provides a direct 600A, 25kA-rated connection with a removable protective cap that allows for increased safety in everyday operations. Series GAD and GADDR are designed for standard C-clamp ground connections, and Series BGAD and BGADDR are specially designed for ball-stud ground connections.

“Very rarely do users have a direct 600-amp ground connection to connect to,” said Chad Smith, vice president, product management and marketing, at Thomas & Betts. “Usually, they must first reduce the connection to 200 amps, and then ground the system, reducing the capability to withstand short circuits from 25kA to 10kA. The Elastimold® GAD provides a direct 600A, 25kA-rated ground connection that is permanent, reliable and safe.”

The Elastimold® GAD connects to the rear interfaces of 600A series elbow connectors (T-bodies) to ground the circuit. To remain open, the insulated cap with a capacitive test point assures that there is no voltage present. Once the circuit is de-energized, it is grounded through the grounding cable to the system ground.

Elastimold® GADs comply with the ANSI/IEEE-386-2006 Standard.
