February 22, 2008 -- Harger has introduced the GPC2/0RD1.75, the latest ground pedestal clamp in its GPC family of clamps.
The company maintains that today's data centers require an increasing amount of air flow under the raised floor, thus requiring longer pedestal lengths. At the same time, notes the company, more and heavier equipment is being installed on these floors; this has lead to a longer raised floor pedestal with a corresponding increase in pedestal diameter.
To accommodate these requirements, Harger has created the new line of pedestal grounding clamps. According to the company, these clamps can handle pedestal diameters from 1-1/8" to 1-3/4" diameter and conductor sizes from #6 AWG to 2/0.
The clamp's swing free u-bolt design speeds installation, while its dual conductor cap allows for a larger size cross run conductor and a bonding size conductor to be placed in the clamp at the same time. Electro-tin plated copper components and stainless steel hardware ensure material compatibility, free from corrosion.
