Portable Bonding Clamp With Visual Indication
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 “go-anywhere” 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.
