LEC created the bypass conductor industry in 1999. Our founder, Roy Carpenter holds 2 US patents on our bypass conductor, the Retractable Grounding Assembly, or RGA. LEC was also instrumental in bypass conductors becoming an API 545 recommended practice in 2008.
With over 20 years of experience and over 15,000 units sold, we are the most established provider of bypass conductors in the market and provides best fuel tank lightning protection. Only LEC has had hundreds of units on oil tanks around the world. Our units have experienced windy, corrosive, hot, cold, dry, and wet conditions in every environment around the globe. LEC has incorporated this experience and hundreds of hours of environmental testing into our units. No one else can claim this level of expertise.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Today there are cheap knockoffs popping up all over the globe. Beware of cheap copycat products such as these: Retractable Grounding Reel (RGR), Adjustable Bypass Conductor (ABC), Retractable Bypass Conductor (RBC), Dynamic Bypass Conductor (DBC), Rewinder Earthing System (RES), and Retracting Bypass Conductor Assembly (RBCA).
