Reasons You Need ESD Test Equipment

Why Is ESD Testing Important?
When trying to maintain an electrostatically protected environment (EPA), monitoring the effectiveness of your equipment is paramount. Investing in ESD testing equipment that can signify when devices no longer hold their antistatic qualities helps to safeguard both your employee’s safety and that of your equipment of your equipment.

 

What Causes Electrostatic Discharges & What Should I Be Testing?
If you work in any kind of electrical production setting, you are likely already aware of the problems and disruptions that poorly managed ESD protection can cause. But you may not know exactly what causes electrostatic discharge.

In summary, ESD is the sudden and often unexpected surge of electricity. The charge will then flow between two conductive objects and pass between objects of opposing charges (positive and negative). It is often caused through contact of 2 charged objects which can cause a numerous number of problems.

Knowing this, it is then key that you know what you should be testing to maintain an EPA equilibrium. The following are some common items that require ESD testing:

  • Footwear
  • Gloves
  • Wristbands
  • Flooring
  • Worktop Surfaces
  • More…

 

What Equipment Needs An ESD Testing Procedure?

Wrist Strap Tester – This tool can come as either a portable or wall mounted unit. With a simple plug in, it tests the effectiveness of the user’s wrist strap in grounding the ESD. These products display the results through a colour system, green for a pass and red if the ESD wrist strap has failed the test.

Surface Resistivity Kit – Tools of this nature are used when attempting to measure both point to point ESD resistance or the surface resistivity. Surface resistivity tools are incredibly accurate with a static dissipative range of 10 to 100 volts. Simply place the square probe where you require testing, press a button and wait for the results!

Testing For ESD Shoes – Due to heavy use, footwear will degrade over time, often losing their antistatic properties. Testing your ESD footwear is vital to ensure a safe EPA environment. The testing equipment for shoes often comes as an add on to the wrist strap ESD testing stations. This will pass footwear that is within the range of 750 Kilohms - 100 Megohms.

Electrostatic Field Monitors – Compact handheld devices that allow you to measure static charges around your workplace. Optimal for low light and confined spaces, utilising an ESD field monitor ensures accurate measurements for your EPA environment. For more information, feel free to give our team a call today!

Constant Monitors – As you may have guessed, this type of testing equipment allows you to measure the ESD properties of a wristband or work mat at all times of the use. It gives a constant and sustained reading for the grounded connection of the device. You can therefore rest assured that a grounded connection is present through the entirety of the production process when connected.

 

How ESD Testing Equipment Will Help Your Workplace
When you test for ESD in your workplace, you are ensuring that your equipment remains up to the task of grounding the electrostatic charge efficiently. Our equipment is calibrated to ensure the best testing results. Here is how a regular ESD testing procedure will help your business:

Highlight Dangers – From both a moral and business perspective, investing in an ESD testing procedure keeps your workplace healthy and happy. Reduce the damage electrostatic discharge can cause by testing correctly with the right testing equipment.

Spot Faulty ESD Equipment – Products degrade over time through use. Regular ESD testing ensures that you spot faulty equipment in time, enabling you to replace them quickly for your employees.

Monitor Static Charge – Help to identify exactly where static charge is being emitted from your workplace. Know exactly where you need to either clean or put in place antistatic measures to maintain your EPA.
