Self testing bonding clamps with visual indication
The Bond-Rite EZ is an easy to use hand-held portable static bonding device that can quickly and securely establish and verify an equipotential bond between equipment for operations conducted in hazardous locations.
Bright pulsing LED
Provides process operators with a visual reference point to monitor the ground status of equipment
Bites through rust and contamination, to create a low-resistance connection to the earth.
The Bond-Rite EZ is a flexible ďgo-anywhereĒ HAZLOC approved static bonding device that verifies when two metal objects, that are at risk of discharging static sparks, are bonded together with a resistance of 10 ohms or less.
10 ohms is the benchmark resistance specified in IEC 60079-32-1 and NFPA 77.
Once connected the Bond-Rite EZ continuously monitors the resistance of the circuit between the bonded equipment.
When the Bond-Rite EZ detects that the resistance between the equipment is 10 ohms or less the green LED pulses continuously.
The pulsing green LED provides process operators with a continuous visual reference point that enables them to monitor the bonding status of the equipment.
In addition to bonding, the Bond-Rite EZ can be used by competent electrical personnel to ground objects at risk of electrostatic charging.
In such scenarios, the competent electrical person must be sure that the grounding point, e.g. wall mounted bus-bar, has a verified connection to the general mass of the earth.
The Bond-Rite EZ houses the ground loop monitoring circuit and a bright green LED in a rugged stainless steel enclosure.
