4 SYSTEM. BURNDY has developed an irreversible compression ground system which meets the most stringent safety and performance requirements, including those of OSHA and nuclear power plant design. Performance excellence and long life expectancy are the system's basic design guidelines. It is a com- plete system which consists of connectors for grid cross connections, taps, splices, cable to D-3. ground rod, ground plates and terminations. Our irreversible compression ground connec- tors employ well-proven design principles and technology that have been in existence for over 60 years.
5 Connectors are just one component of our Irreversible Compression Ground System. Installation tooling is also an integral part of this system. BURNDY pioneered the com- pression connector principle and continues today to be the leader in compression tech- nology. Our tooling package is the most extensive in the industry and affords the user many options. BURNDY . Grounding THE HYGROUND Features and Benefits IRREVERSIBLE Irreversible compression.
