Prevention of Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) is achieved by working within an Electrostatic Protective Area. This area is to ensure that no high charge materials are within the immediate area of ESD sensitive electronics. This includes grounding conductive material, grounding workers and preventing charge build-up on sensitive electronics.
ESD lab workbenches feature:
- Leg adjustability 30”-36”
- ESD wrist straps
- Drawer options
- Risers with integrated outlet in panels
- Overhead lighting
- Upper shelves
- Custom applications are available
An Electrostatic Protective Area can be accomplished by working on an ESD-safe workstation, using conducting wrist straps and standing on anti-static floor mats. This prevents high voltages from accumulating on workstation operators and damaging the work in process.
