Magnetic Static Grounding Clamp
Intrinsically safe dual core static grounding clamp
The VESX50-IP magnetic grounding clamp utilizes magnetic technology to provide a strong and robust low resistance connection to any ferrous metal surface (body of a drum, container, IBC) without the reliance on an obvious clamping point, such as an earth pin, bar, tab. It also allows a connection method where the process does not allow a traditional earthing clamp to be fitted like closed drum filling or where mixing lids prevent a sound connection of a spring loaded clamp.
The stainless-steel grade 304 clamp body houses two neodymium magnets and wiring. Its powerful combination of sharp spring-loaded tungsten carbide tips complemented by the strength of two neodymium magnets ensures that connection inhibitors such as paint coatings, product deposits or corrosion does not prevent the clamp from making a low resistance (≤10 Ohms) connection to equipment due to be grounded.
Magnets have been incorporated into a wide-ranging number of applications in industries where they were not considered or used before, and this new addition complements Newson Gale’s current range of both fixed Surface Mount Connector and mobile (Cen-Stat™ VESX45, VESX90) clamp connections with customers now able to benefit from more flexibility and variety when assessing the correct solution and ideal connection method for their application.
