Shaft Grounding, Installation


Details regarding positioning and wire run length for the installation of shaft grounding assembly.

Installation Strategies

Positioning the Cutsforth Shaft Grounding Assembly

The Cutsforth Shaft Grounding Assembly is installed on the same portion of exposed shaft as the previous grounding equipment. The Shaft Grounding Assembly must be installed on the “uphill” side of the shaft rotation. Installing on this side of the shaft ensures that the rope does not bunch up or bind up inside the rope guide. The following illustration shows the correct orientation on the left.

Verify that there is adequate spacing on all dimensions of the SGA and/or SCA assemblies including the support arm and mounting point. Consider both the hot and cold operational conditions, and account for thermal expansion when installing in narrow clearance locations. Factors such as generator type may affect the clearances needed to account for thermal expansion.


Total HFD Wire Run Length Must Be Under 4 ft 6 in

To maximize the effectiveness of the High-Frequency Drain (HFD), the wire run length must be minimized. The 12 AWG, chemical resistance wire will run from the Rope Guide Assembly, to a resistor encapsulated inside a heat sink, then to unit case ground. Cutsforth requires that the total run length of the HFD wiring (from the Rope Guide Assembly, to the heat sink, then to unit case ground) to be under 4 ft 6 in.
