For damped discharge and direct, visible earthing.
In its tip with which the live conductor is touched the SebaKMT discharge rod features a discharge resistor which limits the discharge current and ensures a damped discharge.
Within a split second, most of the charge of the cable has flown off a post charging effect is thus eliminated.
The discharge rods are made of GFK (fibre glass strengthened plastic). They are equipped with a handle and conservatively rated clearance against physical contact with high voltage.
