Earth Studs & Earth Straps

Earth Studs & Earth Straps

Rail industry approved Earth Studs manufactured from high quality mild and stainless steel. This helps to optimise the conduction of electricity through the earth stud.

These studs are suitable for welding to enclosures or other structures, and available in a variety of sizes to suit specific earthing requirements.

 

Rail industry approved Earth Straps designed and manufactured to provide a reliable, flexible earth bond on trains and rolling stock.

They are used to provide earth bonding between cabinet-to-body and bogie-to-body, suitable for conducting fault currents. LPA earth straps can be custom made to meet customer requirements: in-line flat, in-line angled or 90° lugs.

 

Earth studs:

  • Easy and quick to fit
  • Long life
  • All electrical connection parts are brass
  • A mild or stainless steel case designed to provide sound electrical continuity
  • Rail industry approved

Earth straps:

  • Flexible and easily laid in multiple directions
  • High integrity electrical continuity for effective earth bonding capabilities
  • Straps are provided with hexagonal crimps
  • Variable terminal offset angle
  • Rail industry approved

Earth Studs:

  • Mild & stainless steel casings available
  • 6 sizes from M6 to M20 to suit the earthing requirement
  • Provided with high temperature protective washer (removed post welding and painting)
  • Brass electrical connection parts, silver soldered to parent material

Earth Straps:

  • Tin plated copper lug terminals suitable for high current ratings
  • Fully sealed between lug and cable to prevent water ingress corrosion and mechanical support of cable at termination to protect the conductors
  • Rail rolling stock applications
