Depending on the size of your workstation, the ioniser that you decide to purchase will be different. Both units will operate the same, neutralising static charge through the production of a balanced source of both positive and negatively charged ions. Their most appropriate customer will vary however.
In short, an electrostatic protected area is a space where all surfaces, objects, people, and devices are kept at the same electrical potential.

People are often unaware of the sheer harm that ESD can cause within a manufacturing environment. The circuitry in modern electronic equipment can suffer lasting and catastrophic damage through the transfer of static electricity.
There are 2 main kinds of risk that are posed from ESD damage, these are:
Complete Failure – The static charge will have created a fault that results in a complete failure of the equipment. This can be due to melting, oxide failure or a junction breakdown.
Delayed Failure – Partial degradation of the circuitry in your device can be caused through an ESD event. This can result in a latent defect which can impact the effectiveness of your equipment or cause your device to have a complete failure later down the line.
It is often a common misconception that these two mean the same thing. But they are not interchangeable, and products labelled as such have different properties that you must pay attention to.
