The Temporary Attachment Equipotential Grounding Tool is a line of field applied attachment points for equipotential grounding work in the high-voltage industry.
Inventor Jeffrey A. Pittman, a utility construction worker, from Lucasville, OHhas created a line of field applied attachment points for equipotential grounding work in the high-voltage industry.
Each field of physical work has its own type of specialty tools, each performing a specialized task. One of these lines of work is high voltage work in the electrical industry. The risk of electrocution when working around live equipment is extremely high. To ensure safety, it is important that all nearby surfaces are at the same potential or voltage. Also, the high voltage nature of nearby lines can induce dangerous voltages, even in de-energized lines. In most cases, workers attach to nearby structures using spring clamps or bolt clamps. However, often times these connections are not low resistance and are sometimes non-existent, thus sacrificing worker safety. Inventor Pittman has created a means by which high reliability and low resistance grounding connections can be provided for equipotential grounding used in high voltage work.
This clever new invention is used in equipotential grounding and bonding. It is for use during high-voltage work. It enhances safety. It is sturdy and durable. The invention can be removed after use or can be left behind to be used again. The use of the Temporary Attachment Equipotential Grounding Points provides enhanced grounding ability when performing maintenance or repair work around high voltage lines in a manner which is quick, easy, and effective.
