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…

The “standard” resistance value for a wrist strap is to be 1 megohm (+/-20%). Touch-Testers test for this, so should your single-wire constant monitor. One of the ways that manufacturers of low cost continuous monitors cut corners is to not monitor for a current-limiting resistor in the wrist strap system. While there is no industry…
