The Importance of Exceeding Minimum Grounding and Bonding in Mission-Critical Facilities


Power quality for sensitive locations, including 9-1-1 and broadcast communications and data centers, usually means exceeding the rather minimal requirements of the National Electrical Code. These improvements in bonding, grounding and wiring can greatly alleviate power quality problems at little cost. Paybacks of several months are common. While the NEC is a minimum safety standard, it does not adequately address reliability. Through a combination of case histories and recommended practice, we will explore actual locations where maintenance of system availability was paramount.


1. Be able to review their facility and conduct a preliminary audit
2. Understand the basic elements of good electrical design
3. Understand the limitations of codes
4. Discover the importance of having basic outlines for contractors
