Looking for the right ESD Work Surface Mat?

What is an ESD Protective Work Surface? ESD work surfaces aid in the prevention of damage to ESD sensitive items (ESDS) and assemblies from electrostatic discharge.ESD working surfaces, such as mats, are typically an integral part of the ESD workstation, particularly in areas where… Continue Reading “Looking for the right ESD Work Surface Mat?”

Best Storage Conditions for PCBs

4 Steps to a Completely Dry ESD Packaging System

Most people are aware of the dangers ElectroStatic Discharge (ESD) can pose on a Printed Circuit Board (PCB). A standard bare PCB (meaning that it has no semiconductor components installed) should not be susceptible to ESD damage. However, as soon as you pack it… Continue Reading “Best Storage Conditions for PCBs”

Why Wave Distortion Technology is superior

We talked in the past about the benefits of continuous monitors and also introduced the different types (single-wire vs. dual-wire) to you. The focus of today’s post is the technology behind continuous monitors – how they work and how they compare to each other. So, let’s jump right… Continue Reading “Why Wave Distortion Technology is superior”

4 Common Wrist Strap Mistakes and one way to avoid them!

The Mistakes Are you regularly getting complaints from your operators that wrist straps are awkward or uncomfortable? Do you come across them not being worn properly? Below you can find just 4 of many mistakes that are made with wrist straps on a regular… Continue Reading “4 Common Wrist Strap Mistakes and one way to avoid them!”

The role of ESD lab coats and Smocks in the ESD Protected Areas

Most people tend to believe that if a person is wearing a wrist strap, an ESD Lab Coat or smock is redundant. This is due to the belief that any charge on the person or their clothes would find its way to ground via… Continue Reading “The role of ESD lab coats and Smocks in the ESD Protected Areas”

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”

3 Tips for Fighting 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 “3 Tips for Fighting ESD”

6 solutions for maintaining cleanliness and safety whilst also controlling Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)

Ever feel like you’re fighting a losing battle? You are in charge of improving and maintaining the ESD Control measures at your facility, but every time you try to make a change you feel like something is battling with your objective. Often, we find… Continue Reading “6 solutions for maintaining cleanliness and safety whilst also controlling Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)”

What you need to set-up an ESD Protected Area

As we discovered last week, an ESD Protected Area (EPA) is a defined space where all surfaces, objects, people and ESD Sensitive Devices (ESDS) are kept at the same potential. Simple, right? Not necessarily, sometimes it is easier said than done as every company’s… Continue Reading “What you need to set-up an ESD Protected Area”
