Self-testing grounding clamp with visual indication
The Bond-Rite CLAMP, patented exclusively by Newson Gale, is the only static grounding clamp that provides operators with a visual reference that potentially charged equipment is connected to a verified static grounding point.
The Bond-Rite CLAMP contains a bright green LED which pulses continuously when it detects that the resistance between the equipment to be grounded and the site’s verified earth ground (e.g. copper tape) is 10 ohms or less.
Once connected the Bond-Rite CLAMP continuously monitors the resistance of the circuit between the equipment and the verified ground point (e.g. wall-mounted bus bar).
The pulsing green LED provides process operators with a continuous visual reference point that enables them to monitor the ground status of equipment at risk of accumulating static electricity and discharging static sparks.
