Ground Bonding Jumper Kits group

Where Is Ground?

For safety reasons, Engineered Products Company’s (EPCO) legacy products, Ground Bonding PigTails™, enables the electrical contractor to make a properly and solidly grounded connection to safeguard people and property from electrical shock hazards. Our 40+ year history of manufacturing 36 configurations of 12 and 14-gauge solid and stranded wire Ground Bonding PigTails (not including numerous “custom” configurations for PigTails) typically used in commercial, industrial, agricultural, and both single and multi-family residential homes makes EPCO the premier manufacturer of these products.

The addition of our larger gauge Ground Bonding Jumpers Kits extend the ground bonding product category. For circuits operating over 60 amps, these kits provide a means to carry electric currents to ground under normal and fault conditions without exceeding any operating and equipment limits, or adversely affecting continuity of the electrical service. This ensures any person in the immediate area is not exposed to any danger of electrical shock.

Where can EPCO’s Ground Bonding Jumper Kits be used?

Fundamentally, our kits primary purpose is to: 

  • Handle discharge currents from lightning arresters, spark gaps, and other similar devices
  • Provide a ground return path for grounded-wye generators and transformers
  • Ensure stable ground conditions for protective relays
  • Improve the reliability of electronic process controls, computer systems, and communication circuits by making low-resistance ground connections accessible, and most important;
  • Protect personnel from injury and property from damage by managing high-voltage surges

Applications for our large Ground Bonding Jumpers is virtually endless. Some examples by market segment are:
