In this video, Patrik Ott explains everything you need to know about earth and mass. Learn how to avoid massive errors in your measurement results.

How does earth and ground effect measurement results?

This episode of the HBK Expert Talk is about the separation of earth and ground. A topic that at first glance does not appear to have much to do with measurement technology. However, the exact differentiation of earth and ground has important effects on the quality of your measurement results.

This differentiation is explained in more detail along with which calculations you should make by HBK Academy Trainer, Patrik Ott. 


In this HBK Expert Talk you will learn...

  • What the differences between earth and ground are - and why it is important to separate the two for your measurement projects
  • What "ground" means
  • Why an ideal technological setup only exists in theory (or when everything is switched off) - and how you can deal with the imperfect real technological conditions
  • What should never be done under any circumstances during you measurements when it comes to earth and ground
