CATV System Grounding Techniques (1974)

By Robert A. Brooks, Telcom Engineering, Inc.

Grounding and bonding are important to CATV operators for the protection of personnel and plant from accidental power line contact and lightning strikes. The increasing complexity of CATV systems and a growing use of buried plant, with its special susceptibility to lightning damage, should stimulate operators to analyze grounding and bonding needs beyond those historically established in joint-use and utilities codes requirements. The important aspects of these special grounding techniques are described in this paper.
