Earth Bonding Boxes

RS PRO earth bonding boxes with 3 x 10 mm studs which are ideal for any workplaces where sensitive electronic equipment must be protected from static electricity.

Options available include:
298-3957 – Earth bonding box, 3x10mm stud
298-3941 – Earth bonding box, 2x4mm sockets,1x10mm stud
298-3935 - Earth bonding box, 3 x 4mm sockets

These EBP boxes meet the need defined in EN 61340-5 for connecting the elements of an ESD Protected Area (EPA) to a common connection point or Earth Bonding Point (EBP).

The normal earth contact is linked via an individual 1 meg-ohm current limiting resistor. In the event of a workstation element inadvertent contact with the mains supply voltage, the resistor will limit the fault current to less than 0.3 mA at 240 V.

RS PRO have a great range of ESD grounding accessories including bonding plugs, bonding boxes, bonding brackets and cords plus many more to help eliminate the build-up of static discharge which can be a risk to static sensitive components or devices.

RS PRO is our own brand range and brings you a wide range of high-quality, great value products offering you more choice. Trusted by engineers all over the world, every part of every RS PRO product has been rigorously tested against demanding industry standards; they’re only given the RS PRO Seal of Approval if we’re confident of their exceptional quality, which means you can be confident too.

Typical Applications

ESD grounding accessories form part of a workplace safety system to monitor and/or eliminate the build-up or discharge of static electricity that may pose a risk to electrical components such as computer hard drives.


What are ESD grounding accessories used for?
ESD (electrostatic discharge) grounding accessories are components within ESD grounding loops. These accessories are used in workplaces where sensitive electronic equipment must be protected from static electricity, or where there's a danger of flammable liquids or gases igniting.
ESD protection is achieved by electrical grounding. Grounding accessories are components that may be required as part of an entire ESD grounding system. They're often used to connect and integrate ESD-safe mats, ESD continuous monitors, wrist straps, ESD safe shoe covers and other apparel, or ESD-safe surfaces.

What types of ESD grounding accessories are available?
Available accessories include a range of connectors, bonding points, bonding plugs, bonding boxes, bonding brackets, earthing wires, individual replacement snap studs, stud installation tools, earth stud kits, crocodile clips and a variety of adaptors such as stud-to-banana sockets.
