Lapp Simplifies Grounding Methods Selection with New Online Tool


Florham Park, NJ, – The Lapp Group has created an online tool that guides engineers in selecting grounding methods for shielded cable installations. A downloadable PDF comparison chart is also available.



According to Jana Andreas-Persson, Product Manager at Lapp USA, selecting the best grounding method requires a balance between installed cost and grounding performance.



She comments, “Some of the most common grounding methods, while seemingly inexpensive in terms of the component cost, require labor-intensive installation procedures that can drive up installed cost significantly.  Other methods lack the full 360º contact between the grounding hardware and the cable braid, reducing the effectiveness of the grounding connection and protection against EMI.”
