Re: CQD answer published Friday, March 10, 2017 -Barn Feeder

Charlie, in the question about the barn supplied by a feeder you said that two ground rods are needed unless the 25 ohm rule is met. Is that enough or are other electrodes required.

Thank you, Taylor



Hey Taylor thanks for your follow up question. Buildings and structures supplied by feeders must have a grounding electrode system that complies with Part III of Article 250 as stated in 250.32(A). Any and all of the grounding electrodes in 250.52(A)(1) through (A)(7) that exist must be bonded together and used as the grounding electrode system as stated in 250.50. If no grounding electrodes exist then one or more of the ones in 250.52(A)(4) through (A)(8) must be installed such as two ground rods or a single ground rod that meets the 25 ohm resistance value.

Wow, cool post. I’d like to write like this too – taking time and real hard work to make a great article… but I put things off too much and never seem to get started. Thanks though.

    An electrode with an invariant potential. In electrochemical techniques, where it is important to watch, measure, or control the capability of another electrode (meant pointer, test, or working electrode), it is important to utilize a reference terminal, Essay writing service which keeps up a potential that remaining parts essentially unaltered over the span of an electrochemical estimation. Possibilities of marker or working terminals are measured or communicated with respect to reference electrode. One such electrode, the ordinary hydrogen electrode, has been picked as a kind of perspective standard, in respect to which possibilities of different electrodes and those of oxidation-decrease couples are regularly communicated. By keeping up a consistent weight of hydrogen gas the capability of a hydrogen electrode can be utilized for assurance of the movement of hydrogen particles in the tried arrangement.
