Externally powered self testing static grounding clamp
The precision and reliability of the Bond-Rite® REMOTE provides enhanced safety and security by continuously testing the connection of the clamp to the container or other conductive item of plant in a complete loop made through the designated grounding point.
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.
