Externally powered self testing static grounding clamp
Bond-Rite® REMOTE EP
A pulsing LED, located on a wall mounted box, indicates the status of the connection of the clamp, and the complete ground loop up to the verified earth.
Bites through rust and contamination, to create a low-resistance connection to the earth.
2 types of wall mounted boxes
GRP = Glassfibre Reinforced Plastic
SS = Stainless Steel, for corrosive and hygiene environments
For process applications that require grounding for more than 6 hours per day, the Bond-Rite® REMOTE EP (EP = Externally Powered) utilises 230 V AC or 115 V AC mains supply / line power to power the monitoring circuit of each indicator station.
The external power supply can be located in both the ‘hazardous’ (Zone 2/22 – Div.2) and ‘non-hazardous’ areas, with the indicator stations mounted in the zoned / HAZLOC area (Zone 0 / Div.1) or lower.
When used in conjunction with the Newson Gale Universal power supply, up to 10 Bond-Rite® REMOTE indicator stations can be powered simultaneously. This enables users to actively monitor up to 10 items of plant equipment at risk of electrostatic charging (e.g. drums) independently of each other.
An additional advantage of this configuration is that the external power supply itself can be installed within the hazardous area.
