Improving the Path-to-Ground of Worksurface Mats
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…

Identify Sources of ESD at the Work Area with Static Field Meter: Measure – Control – Verify
Measure: Indicate surface voltage and polarity of objects. Control: Insulators must be identified at an ESD work area and must meet the guidelines in the ESDA’s ESD Control Program Handbook-ESD TR20.20. Non-Process Essential Insulators If items that can charge to 125 volts or more*, then one of the following will be used: Remove the item…

Remember the time when Steve Wozniak taught us about ESD?
In 1985 Apple produced a service video that explained the importance of ESD control when servicing an Apple II. Steve Wozniak, a co-founder of Apple computers, was featured in the 26 minute video explaining the handling of ESD susceptible devices. Other than the fact that ESD components are smaller and more sensitive than ever (see…
