Shows a completed Shaft Grounding Assembly installation and introduces the main components and steps involved in the installation.

Installation Overview

The following figure shows the Shaft Grounding Assembly installed. The installation consists of these main parts:

  • Rope Guide (A): The portion of the Shaft Grounding Assembly that lays over the shaft and holds the grounding and metering ropes.

  • Attachment Arm (B): A pipe that connects the Shaft Grounding Assembly to the unit housing.


These are the main tasks in the installation procedure:

  1. Installing the attachment arm. The length of the attachment arm varies with each installation, so you must temporarily place the Shaft Grounding Assembly on the shaft in order to measure the required length of the attachment arm. The attachment arm is then cut to size, inserted into the mounting hardware, and locked in position with set screws.

  2. Securing the rope guide. The rope guide must be precisely positioned to match the contour of the shaft. This is accomplished by tightening bolts at the top of the rope guide.
