How fiber optics is being used for proper single-point grounding of distributed electronic systems in industrial facilities with varying existing grounding approaches is outlined. Grounding schemes such as the conventional approach, single-point ground, total single-point ground, and signal reference grid are discussed. A fiber optics solution for a single-point ground system is presented. The author stresses that in all situations, grounding must be recognised first and foremost as a safety method and must adhere to the National Electrical Code
