Externally Powered Earthing Clamp

Bond ® -Rite REMOTE

The precision and reliability of the Bond-Rite® REMOTE EP offers advanced safety and security by frequently testing the connection of the clamp to the container or other conductive items of plant in a whole loop made through the designated earthing point.

For process applications that require earthing for more than 6 hours per day, the Bond-Rite® REMOTE EP (EP = Externally Powered) utilises 230V AC or 115 V AC mains power to power the monitoring circuit of up to ten indicator stations.

The external power supply can be located in both hazardous areas (Zone 2 / 22 – Div.2) and non-hazardous areas. The indicator stations can be mounted in EX zoned / HAZLOC area (Zone 0 / Div.1) or lower.

When used in conjunction with the Newson Gale’s certified 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 (eg drums).

An additional advantage of this configuration is that the external power supply itself can be installed within the hazardous area.

Typical Applications:

  • Filling and dispensing to / from metal containers, including drums, waste drums, mixing vessels.
  • Grounding equipment used in mixing and blending operations
