Lightning and power surges are some of the most destructive events for electronics. Regardless of the quality of the surge protector or surge suppressor used to protect against these events, without a good earth ground system to disperse the dangerous voltages and currents, then personnel, equipment, facilities, and services are at risk. Injury or death of personnel or system downtime can be devastating to a company's reputation and finances. This webinar will talk about the fundamentals of earth grounding systems and show how Sankosha's SAN-EARTH M5C conductive cement can help improve the performance and life of electronics. We will also show how easy it can be to design and implement a SAN-EARTH M5C grounding system.

See how SAN-EARTH M5C can help solve the challenges of meeting a target resistance for a grounding system when soil conditions are poor due to high soil resistivity. Learn about how a low inductance earth grounding system is also super important in handling often destructive high frequency surges, like lightning. Learn how SAN-EARTH M5C is a one-and-done solution and how it does not rely on other factors, unlike other typical solutions found in the market today.

Having long term stability and reliability are also important in an earth grounding system as it reduces overall costs and improves safety and production. In addition to improving a grounding system's performance, SAN-EARTH M5C helps prevent an earth grounding system from degradation over time due to copper corrosion and from completely failing due to copper theft.
