The general earthing system connects the different parts of an electrical installation with the surface conductor of the Earth to guarantee security and functionality.
In an electrical installation, the soil itself provides equipotentialization for all of the metallic parts so that there are no differences in potential between each other. This is carried out in order to guarantee the safety of people and equipment from any possible defects in the actual facilities.
Earthing, also known as grounding, is a fundamental and essential part of an electrical system. Despite not being a visible element, the earthing system is of vital importance for the safety of people and equipment, as it protects against dangerous potential differences.
Soils that are near the sea are usually sandy and therefore with a high resistivity. The grounding enhancing products of Aplicaciones Tecnológicas, S.A. have obtained low earth resistances at the Port of Valencia

Hospitals, retirement homes, research centers, laboratories, etc., are key infrastructures that must be protected against the risks caused by electrical storms. Buildings in which there is a high concentration of people, high-cost equipment and even patients connected to electrical systems that cannot suffer cuts or alterations in the electricity supply, require a comprehensive lightning protection system with the maximum guarantees of safety and quality.
