Electrical Ground Rules; Best Practices for Grounding Your Electrical Equipment

A free white paper by Acromag, Inc.

When wiring or connecting circuits, electrical equipment, and electrical instruments, there is a connection that you probably don’t give much thought to, and one that consequently reigns as one of the greatest sources of instrument error and malfunction. The connection I am referring to is your connection to Ground. For the purpose of this discussion, unless otherwise specified, the term “ground” will refer to a connection to earth ground, or an extension of a connection leading to earth ground. In some circuits, ground may also refer to a connection to the chassis or frame of the device, which is sometimes used in the absence of a connection to earth ground as a convenient reference point for signal measurement.
