Wave Distortion Technology continuous monitors feature low test voltage, a low monitor range for 1 megohm of resistance in the operator’s wrist strap, and instantaneous detection of an intermittent or failure of the path-to-ground of the operator or work surface that other monitors / technologies miss. How Wave Distortion Technology Works Applies a continuous test voltage…

The ESD Association‘s Resistance-to-Ground (Rtg) requirement for an operator wearing a wrist strap is < 3.5 X 107 ohms (ANSI/ESD S20.20). A wireless wrist strap will never meet this requirement. Wireless wrist straps claim to work by “making (a) body’s static electricity to discharge through discharge box.” Assuming that an operator was tribocharged to 10…

Desco made our first crude version of a wrist strap for an aerospace customer in Southern California. The wrist strap was basically a metal watchband connected to a wire with a ring terminal on it. There were no industry accepted standards, qualification procedures, or certification processes at that time. ESD susceptible components used in electronics…
