To ensure earthing compliance in line with HTM06-01 and BS7671:2008 section 710, for safe Hospital design reducing the risk of electric shock in patient areas, an Equipotential Bonding Busbar or Earth Bonding Bar (EBB) should be incorporated into the design of the electrical infrastructure. 

Bender UK offers a range of quality EBBs.  Designed and manufactured in-house, they available as supply only for use in Group 1 and Group 2 medical locations, or for inclusion into critical care power installation projects supplied with Bender Medical IT (IPS) and UPS equipment.

EBBs are designed to equalise the potential difference between extraneous conductive parts and protective conductors which are located within the Group 1 and 2 Medical Locations. In these areas the measured resistance of the protective conductor between the earth terminal of any socket-outlet (or fixed equipment) and any extraneous-conductive-part shall not exceed 0.2 Ω this assumes type `B` MCBs are being used and further consideration should be given when using alternative types.

All extraneous metalwork within the patient area must be bonded to the EBB. Where Medical IT systems have equipotential reference Earth Bonding Bars (EBB) built within the system enclosure, this must be located within or near the medical location so that it can be accessed easily and disconnected. A minimum of four but no less than 25% of equipotential bonding connection points for the connection of medical electrical equipment shall be provided for each patient location.

Bender EBBs are available in flush or surface mounting options. Standard solutions are designed with 200amp rated copper bar.  Alternatives such as 3no 400amp copper bars are available subject to design configurations.  Customised variants are available, please contact us for further information.
