The scope of this project is to design manufacture and test a portable earthing device. The project can be split into three stages.

  1. Concept Design

  2. Engineering Design

  3. Manufacturing and commissioning

The objective of this project is to design, manufacture and test a portable earthing device that removes the need to manually install portable earths in locations that are difficult to access.

This project will be successful if a portable earthing device is developed that is fit for purpose and safe to use.
