Grounding Mats: Requirements for Connecting Multiple People Safely

Grounding is a process of equalizing the potential of the body with respect to that of the Earth. It is done through a circular cable, also known as a ground cable, which runs through the system and connects to it each time you insert the ground cable into the third hole (the ground port) of the electrical outlet. Static discharge, on the other hand, is referred to as soft earth or dissipative earth and has an in-line resistance of 1 megohm in the ground cable designed to slowly eliminate static electrical charges (contact and separation loads).Outside of North America, you may need to use a grounding bar if your home's electrical system isn't properly grounded.

Grounding mats

should last for many years, as long as they are not cleaned with abrasive products or harsh chemicals.

Grounding products connect you to ground electrons through the grounding port of your three-prong outlet or through a grounding rod. When it comes to connecting multiple people to the same grounding mat, there are certain requirements that must be met in order to ensure safety. The product's grounding cables are designed to provide a secure soft ground connection using an integrated resistor (molded in-line) that limits the current to 100 kOhm. This ensures that each person connected to the mat is safe from any potential electric shock. It is important to note that while grounding through the home network is similar to using an external grounding rod, it is not exactly the same. The external grounding rod is connected directly to the power grid in every country, while the home network is connected only to your home's electrical system. In conclusion, it is possible to connect multiple people to the same grounding mat at the same time.

However, it is essential to ensure that each person is connected safely by using a product with an integrated resistor that limits current to 100 kOhm.
