|Question||What is the difference between grounding and bonding?|
|Answer||Grounding is connecting your system to an earth ground. Bonding is connecting your system components to the grounding system. You canít have one without the other. If you do not have good bonding, then the chance of having poor low impedance pathways to ground will be present and will not allow for short circuit protection devices to function correctly. A poorly grounded system can also cause electrical noise to disrupt low voltage signals.|
