If you are in need of a wire or cable assembly that is custom made for your specific requirements, there are a number of options to consider. On the surface it's pretty simple - You have a wire, and then something on the ends of the wire (or not). But there are tons of options to customize and get it just right for what you need.
From electrical design to maintenance, engineers must determine what electrical clips (also called alligator or crocodile clips) are best suited for their project.
These clips can range from small to large, be made of a wide range of materials, come in various jaw types, handle wide ranges of electrical current and can be certified for safety by being UL-listed.
With such a wide range of options, there are many factors to come into play when selecting clips
When trying to determine the cause of problems encountered with electrostatic painting, it can be confusing. The problem is often solved by updating the grounding process, however this simple solution is often overlooked.

Static electricity is all around us in everyday life and generally refers to an imbalance between positive and negative charges in objects. Most people have experienced it in some form or another whether it be with their laundry being particularly “clingy,” making a balloon stick to a wall after rubbing it on your clothes, or when walking around wearing socks on a carpet and getting a small shock when touching another object or person.

Every electrostatic paint line requires grounding. As each substrate enters the paint booth the question is always, "Is it grounded?" At this point you have cleaned the carrier, connected grounding straps (if necessary), and may have even coated the substrate with conductive material so you've done your job and your paint line will produce great results. Or will it? How do you know whether or not your paint line is providing a solid ground? How do you know it is really, safe to paint?
