WEEB 8.0 BONDING JUMPER

Description

The Bonding Jumper is used to create an electrical connection between two pieces of anodized aluminum, galvanized steel, or any electrically conductive metal which has been mechanically spliced. Long spans of mounting rails are sometimes constructed from two shorter rail sections.


Manufacturers may recommend that a floating splice be used to allow for thermal expansion. A floating splice is rigidly attached to only one rail, and allows the rails to expand and contract in line with each other. In such cases, via NEC code, it is also necessary to make an electrical splice, which can be done with a WEEB Bonding Jumper.


The Bonding Jumper is constructed of tin plated, braided copper wire with a WEEB attached at each end of the Jumper. The WEEBs provide a reliable, gas tight electrical connection, and the braided copper wire allows for thermal expansion. The examples below illustrate two ways to install the WEEB Bonding Jumper.

 

  • Bonds PV modules to mounting structures
  • Specialized teeth on washer embeds into anodized aluminum to establish gas-tight electrical connection
  • 304 Stainless Steel washer
  • Stock parts for most popular mounting systems
  • Custom WEEB designs also available
  • ETL Listed to UL 467
  • UL Recognized to UL 2703
