A length of eight feet approximately two and a half meters is standard with the rod being fully driven into the ground so that it does not present a tripping hazard Once the grounding rod is placed it can be connected to the electrical system with the use of a ground connector and a wire Often grounding rods are placed near an electrical box for convenience 07 06 2020 nbsp 0183 32 b Ground rods shall not be less than 5 8 inch in diameter by 8 feet in length c Ground rods shall be driven into the ground so that one end of the ground rod is at a minimum depth of 8 feet below the surface of the ground Beside above are ground rods required The NEC and UL require a ground rod to be at least 8 feet in length This

Ground Rods What are they And how do they protect

A useful rule is that grounding systems of 2–24 rods placed one rod length apart in a line hollow triangle circle or square will provide a grounding resistance divided by the number of rods and multiplied by the factor F taken from Table 2 Table 2 Notes Additional considerations with respect to step and touch potentials would be addressed by the geometry Placing 1 Ground Rod Specifications The grounding rod shall not be less than 8 feet in length and must be free of nonconductive coatings such as paint or enamel The ground rods may be made from the following materials A 3 4 quot diameter or larger galvanized pipe B 1 2 quot diameter or larger copper clad or solid copper rod 2 Ground Rod Installation
