The ground electrode equipment are examples. Select the ground electrode equipment to suit your system, site, and soil properties.

Of the equipment presented here, Vaisala supplies the air terminal and the down conductor. You may want to purchase the ground electrode materials from local suppliers because the materials are typically needed when preparing the mast installation and when making the civil works at the installation site.
