The Difference between ElectroStatic Charges & Electrostatic Discharges (ESD)

A question that comes up, again and again, is “Are ElectroStatic charges and ElectroStatic discharges different?” so we thought it’d be helpful for everyone to put together a blog post on the subject. So, let’s get started: ElectroStatic charges vs. ElectroStatic discharges ElectroStatic charges… Continue Reading “The Difference between ElectroStatic Charges & Electrostatic Discharges (ESD)”

Storage and Transport of ESD Sensitive Items

We thought today we could focus on ESD during storage and transport. If you have read our recent post on Tips to Fight ESD, you will remember how important it is to protect your ESD sensitive items when leaving an EPA. Yet too often we… Continue Reading “Storage and Transport of ESD Sensitive Items”

Tips to Fight ESD

As electronic technology advances, electronic circuitry gets progressively smaller. As the size of components is reduced, so is the microscopic spacing of insulators and circuits within them, increasing their sensitivity to ESD. Industry experts estimate that average electronics product losses due to static discharge… Continue Reading “Tips to Fight ESD”

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”

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”

LIVE WEBINAR: Static Management Program

Static Management Program Webinar Invite

WHEN: Thursday November 26, 2020 at 10am GMTREGISTER: Here In our last webinar we looked at how you can detect and measure ESD Events and the causes of Electrical Overstress (EOS). This time we will look at how we can continuously monitor these parameters, among… Continue Reading “LIVE WEBINAR: Static Management Program”

LIVE WEBINAR: Measuring ESD Events and the Causes of EOS

WHEN: Thursday November 12, 2020 at 10am GMTREGISTER: Here So far, our webinars have covered the different means of controlling the invisible threat to the electronics industry – Electrostatic Discharge (ESD), and the different testing methods used to keep ESD Control programmes in compliance. Our… Continue Reading “LIVE WEBINAR: Measuring ESD Events and the Causes of EOS”

Live WEBINAR: Body Voltage Measuring

WHEN: Thursday October 29, 2020 at 10am GMTREGISTER: Here In the last webinar we covered the importance of measuring resistance within the EPA, however for a Person/Footwear/flooring system this is not the only test that needs to be carried out. In this webinar we will… Continue Reading “Live WEBINAR: Body Voltage Measuring”
