Ground Rod Connectors

Code: N/A


Ground Rod Connectors are used to join two or more ground rods together.

Ground rods are typically made to be extendable because the length of the ground rod is a factor in its effectiveness as a grounding conductor. In general, longer ground rods are able to dissipate electrical current more effectively than shorter ground rods.

Using ground rod connectors allows for flexibility in the length of the grounding conductor, as the length can be adjusted by adding or removing ground rods as needed. This can be useful in situations where a single ground rod is not sufficient to provide an adequate grounding system, such as in large buildings or complex electrical installations. The connectors allow additional ground rods to be added to the system, increasing its overall effectiveness in protecting people and property from electrical hazards.

UL 467 standard specifies requirements for the design, construction, and performance of ground rod couplers in order to ensure their safe and effective use.

Axis provides two types of Ground Rod Connectors

  1. Threaded Couplers: These couplers consist of a metal sleeve with threads on both ends, which allows the coupler to be screwed onto the ends of two ground rods. The coupler provides a secure mechanical connection between the ground rods, as well as an electrical connection through which electrical current can flow.
  2. Push-fit Couplers: These couplers consist of a plain metal sleeve. The ground rods are hammered into each end of the coupler providing a secure mechanical connection.

Ground Rod Couplers are a valuable addition to any grounding system. These couplers make it easy to connect multiple ground rods together, providing a more secure and effective grounding solution. Additionally, their durable construction ensures that they will withstand the elements and last for years to come. Overall, ground rod couplers are a reliable and cost-effective way to improve the performance of your grounding system.
