The Wallis multi-purpose earth clamp is also referred to as the multi-purpose rod to cable & tape clamp, or more simply the GTI254, and this product has been specifically designed to accommodate copper tape, stranded copper and copperbonded earth rods and is primarily used on high-voltage applications.
Rather than use the standard U bolt concept, this multi-purpose earth clamp uses a variant that allows the earth rod to self-centre in the clamp assembly, which reduces the amount of movement in the fitting.
With the inclusion of slots in the backplate on both plates, customers have the ability to install the copper tape either horizontally or vertically without the need to punch the tape to accept the fixing bolts.
The concept of the multi-purpose earth clamp is to simplify the connection by reducing the number of components required, therefore reducing the time needed to install the equipment.
The design of this unique item has been registered with the UK IPO office under number 4 043 590.
