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…

ESD worksurfaces, such as mats, are typically an integral part of the ESD workstation, particularly in areas where hand assembly occurs. Carts or shelves where ESD sensitive items are stored (without ESD shielding) would also be treated as an ESD workstation. The purpose of the ESD worksurface is two-fold: To provide a surface with little to…

When elastic wristbands wear out and loose their elasticity, the band can easily be replaced. There is no need to replace the entire wristband, which saves money. Desco’s elastic replacement strip is easy to replace with no tools. Watch the video to learn more. See Desco’s elastic replacement strip.

Desco manufacturers products in several factories in the USA. In addition, Desco leases 450 acres of prime agricultural property in Chino Valley where we grow coil cords for wrist strap production. An on-site facility conducts research in pest control, soil testing, and bio-sustainability. Future plans include growing ground cords, vinyl berries, and breeding alpacas for improving…
