New Grounding System

Press release date: July 13, 2010

ground|mate(TM) combines easy handling and low contact resistant

Just by plugging the ground|mate to the threaded bolt the earth connection will be made. This saves a lot of time compared to a screwed fastening and there is no need for any tooling to make the connection. Washer, spring ring and nut, which need to be tighten by a defined torque, are superfluous. Therefore, ground|mate will be used for grounding connections which are in areas not visible or located in areas hardly accessible. Radsok high current contacts are offering a contact-covering up to 65%, providing a low contact resistance. The connecting system offers compact dimensions. The click|fit locking system positively avoids release of the connection during vibration and shock stresses. The grounding system is designed for threaded bolt sizes M6 or M8 as well for pins with diameter 3,6mm, 6mm or 8mm. Wire cross section from 6mm - up to 50mm - can be connected utilising crimp technology. Such cable assemblies and EMC-grounding straps are available in different length.
