Arcus Earthing of High Voltage Conductors with Earthing Lances

Earthing of high voltage conductors with earthing lances

Earthing and short-circuiting is a major element in a series of safety rules for work on or in the vicinity of electrical installations.

In substations, earthing lances form the short circuit-proof connection between high voltage conductor (bus bar or other types of conductor) and the earthing system. 


Portable or stationary

Both systems are designed for a maximum short circuit load of 80 kA / 0.5 s and a peak load of 200 kA.

Usually portable earthing lances can be used up to a conductor height of approximately 8 m.

For conductor heights above 8 m, stationary earthing lances apply. These can be used with little effort for conductor heights up to 12 m.

Why not use Normal Safety Boots ?
  • Electric current can jump (arc) over 40mm at 5000 Volts 
  • The sole of a normal safety or boot or shoe is typically less than 10mm thick and is made of anti-static material that is not electrically insulating
  • The upper of safety boots when wet or damp will conduct electricity - This includes such materials as waterproof leather as the waterproof coating is thin and can be easily damaged
  • Perspiration can make the leather damp enough to fail an EN 50321 test
  • This is why EN 50321 specifies the height of the boot or shoe and that the foot should be enclosed by the footwear
