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.
