October 26, 2013 – Burndy introduced a temporary grounding stud—GCB63T13G1—for static grounding applications.
This connector can be used on rail cars, chemical trucks, hazardous waste tankers or a petroleum vehicle to allow for static grounding protection while in operation. The GCB-type connector provides a convenient contact point, allowing the rail car, truck or tanker to be grounded. The connector is made of bronze and supplied with silicon bronze hardware. The grounding stud can be secured using the provided 1/2-in. hexagonal nut and split-lock washer. Used with universal clamps or ball stud clamps, the GCB63T13G1 can be grounded to an equipotential grid using static reels or ground cables.
