 ACROFIL® – GROUNDING
GROUNDING
Unistrut® recommends use of a separate ground wire for equipment grounding.
Any non-conductive coating to ACROFIL® must be removed by the contractor/end-user to maintain electrical continuity.
Straight Sections
The grounding of two straight sections requires the use of
(2) AF-GCLIP’s and
(2) AF-EG-CBN’s.
Application Example
ACROFIL® GROUNDING CABLE TRAYS
These items consist of grounding clips and the appropriate hardware, for connecting to the trays. One clip should be placed on both sides of the tray, attached at the self-splicing bar.
Straights
2 pcs of AF-GCLIP
2 pcs of AF-EG-CBN
AF-EG-CBN
See pg. 112
Fittings
AF-TBAR1100 and AF-KITCH3s
Fittings
Grounding of fittings requires special attention. Typically fittings are fabricated in the field by cutting straight sections, thus altering the cross sectional area of the tray. A bonding jumper,
and or a AF-TBAR1100 Splice, along with the appropriate hardware must be used on either side of the fitting to ensure electrical continuity.
GROUNDING CLIP [AF-GCLIP]
• Standard finish is Galvabond Z275
• Sold in packs of 10
• Connection to splice bars requires a nut and bolt assembly (AF-EG-CBN) purchased separately
• Use on both sides of tray
NOTE: Always place nut on outside of tray
AF-GCLIP’s must be utilized if the tray is to be utilized as an equipment ground conductor.
