Grounding is the process of removing the excess charge on an object by means of the transfer of electrons between it and another object of substantial size, such as the earth. When a charged object is grounded, the excess charge is balanced by the transfer of electrons between the charged object and a ground, in this case the earth. The ground is capable of transferring electrons to or receiving electrons from a charged object in order to neutralise that object. When a person is grounding, (also called earthing), it refers to contact with the earth’s surface electrons by walking barefoot outside or sitting, working, or sleeping indoors connected to conductive systems. Through this process, excess charge in a person’s body is equalised.
Grounding Buddy is an indoor conductive system that allows for indoor grounding.
Once you have chosen your products and placed them in the cart, and gone through the check out, this will generate an ORDER which will be sent to us. Once received, we will send you a confirmation invoice with banking details. Once we receive proof of payment, your order will be dispatched to you and may take 2-5 days depending on where you are based.
What is included in a Single Grounding Buddy?
- Grounding Pad with approximately 4m cabling. (Should you have special circumstances needing a longer cable, you can contact us for s special order. We have found to date that a 4m cable is adequate in 99% of circumstances).
- The cable is fitted with a plug that only has an earth connection. The plug is also fitted with a fuse holder, a 50mA fuse and a plug protector that avoids contact to any live wires.
- A Multimeter which can be used to test if you Grounding Buddy is active, and all parts are fully functioning. This Multimeter is not adequate for testing body voltage.
- A container that can be used to safely transport Grounding Buddy. This container is critical as persons can travel with their Grounding Buddy and ensure that it does not damage.
