Title (EN) UNIVERSAL BONDING END CLAMP
(FR) BRIDE TERMINALE DE LIAISON UNIVERSELLE
Abstract:
(EN) Universal bonding end clamps used to assembly photovoltaic (PV) arrays and provide an electrically conductive path (or bond) between PV module frames forming part of the PV arrays and a rail system are provided. The bonding clamp includes a clamp portion and a base portion. The clamp portion includes an electrically conductive body having a mounting structure, at least one electrical bonding member extending from the body, and at least one pressure member extending from the body and a base pressure member extending from the body. The clamp portion may also include one or more spacers to facilitate the alignment of the clamp portion relative to the base portion. The base portion includes an upper wall having a mounting structure, a lower wall having a mounting structure and a side wall between the upper and lower walls. When the clamp portion is positioned relative to base portion for installation, the clamp portion mounting structure is aligned with the base portion mounting structures, and the base pressure member engages the side wall.
(FR) L'invention concerne des brides terminales de liaison universelles utilisées pour assembler des réseaux photovoltaïques (PV) et réaliser un trajet (ou une liaison) électriquement conducteur entre les cadres de module PV qui font partie des réseaux PV, et un système de rail. La bride de liaison comprend une portion de serrage et une portion de base. La portion de serrage comprend un corps électriquement conducteur ayant une structure de montage, au moins un élément de liaison électrique qui s'étend depuis le corps, et au moins un élément de pression qui s'étend depuis le corps et un élément de pression de base qui s'étend depuis le corps. La portion de serrage peut également comprendre un ou plusieurs éléments d'espacement destinés à faciliter l'alignement de la portion de serrage par rapport à la portion de base. La portion de base comprend une paroi supérieure ayant une structure de montage, une paroi inférieure ayant une structure de montage et une paroi latérale entre les parois supérieure et inférieure. Lorsque la portion de serrage est positionnée par rapport à la portion de base pour l'installation, la structure de montage de la portion de serrage est alignée avec les structures de montage de la portion de base, et l'élément de pression de base vient en prise avec la paroi latérale.
