Temporary earth sets with “snap on clamps” are available with a separate earth lead or with the earth looped into the set.
These spring loaded clamps make it extremely fast and easy to install the earths on overhead lines, the operator simply sets the preloaded jaw of each clamp and mounts them onto the application plate which is connected to a hotstick. Once the clamps are mounted to the application plate they are lifted above the conductor and pulled back down over it to snap into place.
These clamps are equally easy to remove, simply pull each clamp from the conductor with the clamp removal tool specifically designed for use with these clamps.
A three phase set with separate earth lead helps to reduce the amount of weight being lifted into the air while the looped shorting and earth set offers the convenience of everything already being connected (this is ideal for urban applications).
