      • Connect the conduit to an outdoor rated metal junction box. The junction box must be mounted as close as possible to the opening at the bottom of the parapet mount.
      • If the conduit cannot be directly connected to the surge suppressor, then use a metal junction box for the conduit connection. Only install the surge suppressor inside a junction box if this is approved by the manufacturer.
      • The surge suppressor and/or junction box must be mounted as close as possible to the opening at the bottom of the parapet mount. . Connect the ground per the manufacture’s installation manual.
    3. Secure the ground wire to the metal conduit with a grounding clamp fitting.
      • Use a stranded conductor 8 AWG for the ground wire.
      • Example of a grounding clamp: Burndy P/N C11N.
