touch voltage

Touch voltages occur when charged, conductive surfaces and system parts are touched.

Touch voltages occur when the corresponding parts are faulty or the protective earth conductor of the low- voltage mains is not properly connected. It is used to establish a direct connection of the conductive system parts and device parts to the ground potential and to protect persons against impermissible touch voltages.
