Topic: Bonding & Grounding-What’s the difference? How do they apply to us?

Bonding is the joining of metallic parts to form an electrically conductive path. Bonding ensures electrical continuity and capacity to safety conduct any current likely to be imposed. Grounding is permanently connecting to earth through a ground connection that has sufficiently low impedance (less than 25 ohms) and sufficient ampacity to ensure any ground fault current that may occur cannot build up to dangerous voltages. Did you get that? Mick will help us understand!
