Grounding/Bonding, Surge Protection, and Lightning Protection for the Telecommunications Industry
In Part 3 of our series on telecom grounding systems, we will concentrate on Motorola R56 Chapter 4 - External Grounding (Earthing). There are many sections in the Motorola R56 specifications, including site design and development, communications, building and design, internal grounding, power sources, surge protective devices, minimizing interference, and equipment installation.
Telecom Grounding Systems: The Importance of the Motorola R56 Specifications (Part II) In Part two of our telecom grounding system series per the Motorola R56 Standard, we will deal with a few concepts. First, we’ll look [...]
n this first part of four articles, we will cover the implementation of a low resistance, low impedance telecom grounding system from not only a practical viewpoint, but as it relates to Motorola R56 specifications.
Now, who is ALLTEC? That is the company that can give you end to end solutions for not only lightning protection, but surge protection in general. It’s not just about the big surges, it is about the breakdown of equipment over time.
