Abstract

This disclosure relates to devices for electrically bonding, and thereby ‘grounding’, structural members on aircrafts, such as conduit lines within fuel tanks, to a grounding reference point This disclosure proposes a bonding clamp which consists of two pairs of ears, thus allowing two independent paths for connecting to the grounding point.

Fig 3

Figure 1 shows a fail-safe bonding clamp 10 assembled onto a structural member 11 positioned in a fuel tank. The bonding clamp 10 is shown separately in figure 2. The bonding clamp 10 consists of 2 identical (or not) parts 12, 13. Each part 12, 13 incorporates a semi-circular section 14, two ears 15, and a recess 16. Each ear 15 incorporates an inner hole 17 and an outer hole 18. The recess 16 is a longitudinal cut-out from each part which starts and ends at the inner hole 17 of each e...
