Can a Grounding Mat be Used with High Voltage Equipment or Systems?

It is essential to be grounded in order to restore our natural electrical connection to the Earth, which is lacking due to our shoes with rubber or plastic soles and insulating sleeping arrangements. This connection to the Earth has been reported to provide numerous benefits, such as relieving pain, improving immune function, improving sleep, stabilizing the body's basic biological rhythms, reducing chronic inflammation, and protecting against the effects of electromagnetic fields (EMF). The easiest way to stay grounded is to go outside and place your bare feet or hands on some grass or dirt. To be grounded indoors, we offer a range of products to make this same electrical connection to the Earth.

These products are connected via the home network to the ground or through an external grounding rod stuck in the ground. In fact, a modern home electrical system has such a grounding rod buried in the ground (usually right outside the house). This grounding rod is connected through the domestic wiring system to the ground pin of each electrical outlet. The systems we sell have a built-in protection resistor that makes them completely safe.

Grounding is as natural as walking barefoot on Earth, but of course, we always recommend that you see a doctor. If you are taking blood-thinning medications, keep in mind that grounding can also reduce blood viscosity. The ground outlet is always connected, whether the outlet is turned on or not. On the contrary, it doesn't matter if the plug is turned on, since there is no connection to the active pins.

Yes, as long as it is a grounded extension cable and is properly wired, it will work fine. I have seen similar products used in the electronics industry for protection against electrostatic discharge (ESD). Can I use them for grounding? Yes, you can, and they will have some benefit. However, these systems have a fairly large built-in resistor that dampens the effect of grounding; specifically, the voltages induced in the body due to electromagnetic fields are not as effectively reduced with such systems. The equipment we sell is designed to offer the lowest ground resistance and, at the same time, can be safely connected through an electrical outlet.

Typically, ESD equipment has a resistance of 1 megohm per system component, and usually a complete system will have a resistance of at least 2 megohm (2000 kiloohm). In addition, ESD equipment is often dissipative rather than fully conductive, which adds greater resistance. Our systems are manufactured with a total resistance of 100 kiloohms, a much lower resistance, and all our equipment is fully conductive, not dissipative. Grounding mats should last for many years as long as they are not cleaned with anything abrasive or harsh chemicals. If it needs to be cleaned, wipe it with a soft cloth and mild soapy water.

As they age, we recommend testing them from time to time with a conductivity meter. If used daily, we recommend replacing the grounding bands every year to ensure optimal conductive function. The conductive lifespan of sheets will vary depending on factors such as skin type, skin products used, washing detergent, washing method etc. Typically, the sheets have a conductive life of around 2 to 3 years due to a natural oxidation process that occurs in silver wire in response to these factors. To extend the life of your sheet be sure to follow the washing and use instructions. This includes washing the sheet regularly (every week or two if used at night).

Some people think that they will extend the life of their sheet if they don't wash it as often but in fact this can be harmful as it allows body oils and other organic deposits to accumulate on the silver thread. It is very important to avoid detergents that contain bleach or bleaching agents as these will dramatically reduce the driver's lifespan. The easiest way to check if your film is still working well is to use a conductivity tester. We recommend taking the test from time to time once around the age of 2.Grounding mats connected to a grounded object can protect workers from electrocution by providing an equipotential zone. The PPGB is especially important for high voltage (HV) electrical workers since equipment can receive power remotely from the workplace due to switching or induction errors.

In fact high-voltage circuits can induce voltage and current on conductive surfaces even several meters away from their source.
