Our Equipotential Bars

The equipotential bar is the ideal solution for shunts or multiple connections to different equipment in the installation of a grounding network.

At Proinex we have three models of BEP bars (Equipotential Bar)  that apply for different numbers of connections.

Model S-5

Model L-6

Both models are built in a single piece of stainless steel, laser cut and punched, and then folded by CNC.

Model AXL-12

The AXL-12 Isolated Equipotential Grounding Bar is an accessory that facilitates the equipotentialization of up to 12 components of the grounding system.

The difference with the other equipotential bars is that its mounting base keeps it isolated from the structure on which it will be installed.

Sometimes it is necessary to have a grounding connection collector element, or a grounding connection distributor that remains isolated from the structure on which it is mounted.

The AXL-12 insulated equipotential bar fully complies with this function, allowing up to 12 connection points.


Models S-5 & L-6 

Installation

To install either of the two equipotential bonding bars models, the mounting holes must be planed and fixed using the most appropriate means to the surface to which they will be attached (wall, metal structure, reinforced concrete, etc.).

Once the equipotential bar is installed, the different elements that make up the grounding network, javelins, metal structures, equipment, etc. can be connected.

Insulated Bar Components AXL-12 5/16

The AXL-12 Isolated Equipotential Bonding Bar consists of two well-defined parts:

  1. 1
    The insulating base
  2. 2
    The equipotentiation bar

The insulating base serves to keep the electronics or instrumentation ground separate from the ground.

The equipotential bonding bar provides connection and continuity of up to 12 grounding points.
