Service goes into the main disc then a ct cabinet then a spliter. From spliter 2 teck cables go to 2 fusable switches and each fusable swith with its own panel. The question is : the teck cable into the spliter has a ground wire in it, should the ground wire be grounded with compression clams or u bolt to the main ground so that it creates a true ground for the switched as well or is it enough to just bond the grounds to the spliter can with a ground lug.

My question is are we dealing with a true ground or is it a bond? Mabey you could add a bonding terminal in the splitter?


Never trust an electrician with no eyebrows!!

Anyway, some ppl seem to think its a ground wire but I believe its a bond and it just needs to be bonded to the spliter. Sorry for quick description I am on a blackberry
