There is no major difference between earthing and Grounding, both means
Connecting an electrical circuit or device to the Earth. This serves various
purposes like to drain away unwanted currents, to provide a reference voltage
for circuits needing one, to lead lightning away from delicate equipment.
The process of transferring the immediate discharge of the electrical energy directly to the earth by the help of the low resistance wire is known as the electrical earthing. The electrical earthing is done by connecting the non-current carrying part of the equipment or neutral of supply system to the ground.
The earthing is essential because of the following reasons...
Our ELP Division provides a wide variety of earthing & lightning protection materials.
In an electrical installation an earthing system or grounding system connects
specific parts of that installation with the Earth's conductive surface for
safety and functional purposes. The choice of earthing system can affect the
safety and electromagnetic compatibility of the installation. Regulations for
earthing systems vary considerably among countries.
In addition to electric power systems, other systems may require grounding for safety or function. Tall structures may have lightning rods as part of a system to protect them from lightning strikes. Telegraph lines may use the Earth as one conductor of a circuit, saving the cost of installation of a return wire over a long circuit. Radio antennas may require particular grounding for operation, as well as to control static electricity and provide lightning protection.

A good earthing system is the basis of a good lightening protection system. The
lightening current safely deflected by the interception and arrester system is
routed to the ground. The equipotential bonding performs an additional task
between the arresters and as an equipotential bonding controller in passable
The earthing system is part of the external lightening protection system, which routes the lightning current into the ground where it is to be distributed. The key criteria for an even lightening current distribution without dangerous surges occurring are form and dimensions. OBO provides complete protection through its splendid technology.
