    DI 650- Grounding

    Our ground resistent is of 5.18 ohms
    Is that suficient...and if not....how would that affect the equipment

    Its the grounding of the the equipment.
    We have install 4 javelins 3 meters long and because of the gravel underneath we cant get less than 5.18 ohms resistants

    Sounds like you are talking about earth ground for the power outlet. Have no idea how you would accurately measure the actual resistance to earth. But, I always thought that somewhere between the transformer and the outlet the neutral and ground were brought together. Perhaps near the circuit box or meter. If you are measuring between neutral and ground at the outlet, that sounds very high. I would expect it to be less than 1 ohm.

    I've never tried to measure that, but here is a section of KM troubel shooter guide. Maybe it will help.
