grounding communication protection‘Grounding and Protection of Communication Sites’

On July 10, Border States will host a training on “Grounding and Protection of Communication Sites” at our branch in Bismarck, ND.

The course covers the entire spectrum of grounding, from the basics to the use of surge protection devices – all essential components of minimizing risks from transient spikes, noise and lightning. Attendees will learn how to identify and implement industry-best practices for establishing robust electrical systems.

Transtector will facilitate the one-day course, reviewing the key elements of communications site grounding and protection with an emphasis on single-point grounding techniques.
