Grounding operators that handle ESD susceptible devices is one of the requirements for an ESD Control Plan. In fact, it is the basis of the ESD Association’s ANSI/ESD S20.20-2014 Standard. Grounding the body and maintaining maximum resistance to ground (Rtg) of less than 35 megohms prevents the operator from generating more than 100 volts.  The…

Mounting an ionizer in an electronics production area can be challenging. Ideally, an ionizer will meet the ESD Protected Area’s performance standards while not interfering with normal activity at the workstation. The ionizer should be pointed directly at the target area where ESD susceptible devices are located. The ionizer’s fan speed can be increased to…

This video covers the fundamental principles for protecting ESD sensitive components in a electronics production environment. The presentation includes an explanation and demonstrations of Electrostatic Discharge (ESD), the different models for ESD events, and material types used in an ESD Protected Area (EPA). To learn how to build an effective ESD control program that is…
