The ground wire makes it possible to dispose of default currents, in other words, when metallic masses accidentally become alive before this electrical intervention. Turn off the power for the network concerned when performing this operation, and place enough of the general power supply to install the copper-clad ground rod. You will need a mallet, a pencil, a cutter, a level, a hammer, a shovel, a set of screwdrivers, a drill, a wire cutter, a socket wrench, a fork wrench, 16 millimeters squared grounding wires, an isolating strip, a ground rod, and a flexible shaft. This installation is carried out in five steps which will be discussed. 

· Prepare the installation: 30 centimeters about the floor, find the site for the isolating strip and mounting brackets. Trace the trench location to determine the site for the copper-clad ground rod and its length. Dig a trench that is several dozen centimeters deep.

· Install the ground rod: Hammer the rod into the ground with the mallet. The center of the ground connection must be about 1 meter deep. Only the head of the ground rod should be visible at the surface.

· Install the isolating strip: The isolating strip isolates the internal ground system from the external ground system. Drill holes at the sites you have marked. Place the screw anchors for the strip and the mounting bracket. Strip in the mounting bracket. Screw in the mounting bracket, screw in the strip. 

· Connect the rod: Position the sheath between the strip and the rod to measure it. Cut the sheath to the correct measurement. Insert the ground wire into the sheath. Unscrew the lower terminal of the strip with the socket wrench. Place the bare conductor into place and screw it back in. Position the sheath in the bracket and tighten the bracket. Now the necessary length of the conductor to adjust it to the sheath. Unscrew the clamp ring of the ground rod but the stripped conductor in and tighten it. Use a wrench to tighten it as much as possible. Fill in the trench. 

· Connect the isolating strip: To connect the isolating strip to the system's electrical panel, drill a hole above the strip. Unscrew the higher terminal of the strip. Put the green and yellow ground wire into position, but the stripped end of the ground wire into the higher terminal of the strip; screw the terminal back in. 


Why is copper the most used material for ground rods?

This is the most common type of grounding rod material. To make these types of grounding rods, copper is put to a steel rod in a certain way. According to studies, copper grounding rods have a longer service life than other grounding rods.
