Earth Monitoring Clamp With Wall Mounted Indicator
The precision and reliability of the Bond-Rite® REMOTE enhances safety and security of processes at risk of generating electrostatic charges by continuously testing the connection of the clamp to the container or other conductive items of plant.
The Bond-Rite REMOTE indicator station houses both the earth loop monitoring circuit and a bright green LED indicator which pulses continuously when it detects that the resistance between the equipment and the site’s verified earth (e.g. copper tape) is 10 ohms or less.
Once connected the Bond-Rite REMOTE continuously monitors the resistance of the clamp’s connection to the equipment.
The pulsing green LED provides operators with a continuous visual reference point that enables them to monitor the earth status of equipment at risk of accumulating static electricity thereby preventing the discharge of electrostatic sparks.
The standard GRP enclosure is constructed from static dissipative materials and is suitable for general processing environments. The stainless steel enclosure (SS 316) is designed to cater for hygienic or corrosive environments.
Both enclosures provide a minimum IP 65 degree of ingress protection and are suitable for both indoor and outdoor installation.
The Bond-Rite REMOTE can be powered with a 9V battery (included) or an external 230/115 V AC power supply which can power up to 10 individual indicator stations simultaneously.
The Bond-Rite REMOTE is an ideal solution for applications and installations where interlocks with the process are not required.
Highly visible LED
housed in wall mounted enclosure ensures operators know when a low resistance connection is achieved with potentially charged equipment.
Tungsten carbide tips
bite through product deposit build up, rust & drum coatings to ensure proper bonding connections are made.
Stainless steel 2 core clamps
designed to withstand use in tough chemical processing and industrial environments.
provides personnel with the flexibility of removing the clamp from the zoned / classified areas for battery replacement.
10 ohms loop resistance monitoring
monitoring compliant with international Recommended Practice*.
*IEC 60079-32, “Explosive atmospheres: electrostatic hazards, guidance”.
*NFPA 77, “Recommended Practice on Static Electricity”.
Indicator station mounted stowage pin provides operators with a location to return the grounding clamp when the operation is finished.
