Many people confuse the terms earthing and bonding thinking that they mean the exact same thing. The truth is they don’t, yet many electricians throw the phrase ‘earth bonding’ around like it is an official term and practice. These two terms are as a matter of fact not to be confused with one another, so here are the key differences between the two.
Earthing can have a few different meanings depending upon its application, however its purpose is always the same – to keep electrical equipment as safe as possible. When all metallic parts in electrical equipments are grounded, if that equipment were to fail there would be no dangerous voltages present in the equipment case. This makes the removal, maintenance and servicing of electrical equipment as safe as possible.
All electrical equipment is ‘earthed’ by the outer housing of equipment being directly connected to an earth grid or electrode. This provides a low resistance path to the ground.
