Original Press Release:
Portable, Self-Testing Grounding & Bonding Assembly Meets Heavy-Duty Applications
The popular self-testing Bond-Rite EZ, portable static grounding and bonding assembly is now available equipped with a heavy-duty stainless steel clamp able to provide reliable, long-term service in virtually any application where permanent ground connections would be impractical. The new heavy-duty clamp is fitted with a special jaw grip able to clamp onto virtually any surface, including field-installed grounding rods. This robust clamping mechanism, combined with sharp tungsten carbide "tooth contact points" penetrate through even the heaviest build-up of paint, coatings, corrosion, or other insulating deposits.
The new heavy-duty EZ clamp, like its general-application predecessor, is a self-contained, easy to use device which provides, and continuously verifies, a low-resistance bonding connection. In service it signals the existence of a safe connection to ground - less than 10 Ohms - through a flashing green LED indicator on the handle of the monitoring clamp.
There are numerous operations in industry, transportation and emergency response where it is necessary to establish a low-resistance bond or connection to a local ground point, especially where vehicles such as vacuum trucks or a variety of other mobile or portable equipment are employed. In these situations, the Bond-Rite EZ offers a self-contained, easy to use device. It is available in a range of options, with 10, 16 or 32ft retractable Cen-Stat® cables, or with portable cable reels with up to 100 foot capacity.
All are approved as Intrinsically Safe Devices by Factory Mutual and CSA for Class I, II & III, Div 1 & 2, hazardous locations (all gas groups). The unit also has equivalent European ATEX approval, and is powered by an easily replaceable Lithium Manganese battery, which provides over 1200 hours use in a typical intermittent duty cycle, with a shelf life of up to 10 years.
The Bond-Rite EZ is just part of the Cenelectrex® range of static grounding and bonding equipment available from Newson Gale, Inc., the Lakewood, NJ based specialists in hazardous area static control.
