These new earth grounding clamp kits are a quick and easy install solution to providing equipotential bonding of coax and ground. Grounding the coax eliminates potential differences (voltages) between the coax cable and the earth potential. Especially during thunderstorms, charging can occur on the antenna or on the coax cable. This static charge is removed with the earthing clamp and the connected device is protected. A grounding clamp is not a replacement for lightning protection.
Unlike other earth clamp kits on the market these units are self sealing on assembly. So you just expose the outer braid over the required length and then clamp the unit around the cable – the action of clamping seals the kit to the cable and makes it fully weatherproof to IP68.
The 40cm long tin plated 16mm2 copper earth bonding lead is PVC coated and UV resistant.
