Bondline’s Earth Bonding Plugs can be fully customised in-house by Bondline to any requirement. We can customise logos, configurations, resistance values, languages and more. Special printing and text is available at minimum order quantities. Plugs can be manufactured using any combination of the following in UK or EU plug styles: M5 Post, 4mm stud, 10mm stud, 7mm stud, Hole Blank, Safety Banana Socket, Reverse Banana Socket, Black Banana Socket and Yellow Banana Socket. All of our custom specials Earth Bonding Plugs are manufactured in the United Kingdom. Please contact us if you would like your bonding plug to be customised.
ESD Earth Bonding Plugs offer a simple and easy method of grounding. They are used for connecting ESD wrist wraps and Earth leads to mains Earth. We have the option of purchasing either UK or EU plug sockets for a variety of our Earth Bonding Plugs. The Earth pin is metal for guaranteed safety. The neutral and mains voltage pins are plastic.
Our Earth Bonding Plugs are designed to be used with our range of ESD grounding cords. For all-purpose use, see our universal grounding cord. Each plug is made with a high-build quality. Available in yellow as standard to visually stand out. This ensures that the plug is clearly visible and identified as the grounding point.

Directions For Use
ESD Earth Bonding Plugs provide a common ground point for grounding using protective Earth in an ESD protected area (EPA). The plug fits into the mains supply socket, making a connection with the Earth conductor only. In place of the live and neutral pins are moulded insulating plastic pins to allow positive location in the socket.
Connectors on the front of the plug are available for connection via ground cords to the various elements of the EPA such as wrist strap cords, benches or floor matting connection cords. This ensures each element is held at a common potential. A resistance of sufficient resistance to limit current to less than 0.0005 amperes (0.5 milliamps), at the highest voltage that may be encountered, should be incorporated. Nominally, 800 kilo ohms are sufficient for voltages of up to 240 volts alternating current (AC). The value of one mega ohm is specified because it is a standard value discrete resistor.
Follow appropriate regulatory or company safe grounding instructions. If overstressed the resistor will open the circuit. It is virtually impossible to misuse the plug, which is permanently sealed. The resistance between the terminations and the pin of each plug is tested after manufacture. The plug must only be used for ESD control purposes. Using mains Earth as the “Earth Facility” is now the most popular method for guaranteeing Zero potential in the EPA.
