Proper grounding must be provided to ensure personnel safety and to suppress high frequency noise. The foundation of good grounding is an effective earth ground rod. A star ground point usually connects to the rod with a short, heavy conductor. Lines radiate out from this ground point to each component of the system, establishing a central grounding point. A simple copper clad steel rod can be driven into the ground to create a Grounding Rod; however, the rod must be driven into the ground deep enough such that it comes into contact with the water table to ensure a proper earth ground. Consult with a qualified electrical technician to verify your system grounding. Use 12 AWG Stranded Wire to connect the ground of each system component to the Star Ground on the table.
