IONISATION IN ELECTRONICS PRODUCTION

A complete static control programme must deal with: isolated conductors insulative materials that cannot be grounded. When each of these are process essential, and cannot be replaced with an ESD safe alternatives, we must use Ionisation to protect from ESD damage. That might sound… Continue Reading “IONISATION IN ELECTRONICS PRODUCTION”

3 Steps In Fighting ESD

So far we’ve learned what ESD is and why ESD Protected Areas are so important. In today’s post, we want to equip you with 3 simple tactics to protect your ESD sensitive items. It’s easier than you think! ESD Protection is a Requirement!As electronic technology advances, electronic… Continue Reading “3 Steps In Fighting ESD”

Requirements for an ESD Work Surface

The purpose of an ESD protective working surface is to aid in the prevention of damage to ESD Sensitive Devices (ESDS) and assemblies from electrostatic discharge. An ESD protective working surface provides protection in the following two ways: Providing a low charging working surface… Continue Reading “Requirements for an ESD Work Surface”

What is the difference between conductive, dissipative, insulative and anti-static?

These terms are thrown around a lot in the ESD world, but often there can be confusion regarding their differences, particularly the term Anti-static. Read on as we distinguish each term and learn what equipment is used to measure them. Conductive Materials or Conductors… Continue Reading “What is the difference between conductive, dissipative, insulative and anti-static?”
