Worksurface and floor mats are most commonly grounded with a dedicated wire that is connected to electrical ground. Traditionally, the connection between the mat and wire is made with a snap. Snap connections can become electrically intermittent or accidentally disconnected, causing the worksurface to lose its connection to ground. To improve this connection, Desco offers…

Stop by the Desco Industries Inc booth to see a demo of the SmartLog Pro®. The SmartLog Pro® verifies the functionality of an operator’s wrist strap and footwear, logs the test results, and controls access to an ESD Protected Area. All operator test activity is logged into a database to meet the ANSI/ESD S20.20 requirement for “Compliance…

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…

Posted by Carl Newberg, Ted Dangelmayer and Terry Welsher Current, not voltage, causes ESD damage to electronic devices, circuit boards and assemblies Common items used in electrostatic discharge (ESD) protected work areas (EPA) are plastic totes, trays and boxes. In most cases, these are viewed as commodity items with very little thought or engineering put…

Insulators and Isolated Conductors   Wrist straps and work surface mats are some of the most common devices used to remove static charges. Wrist straps drain charges from operators and a properly grounded mat will provide path-to-ground for for exposed ESD susceptible devices . However, what if the static charge in question is on something…
