The purpose of an ESD Field Service Kit is to create a temporary ESD Protected Area (EPA). The included working surface matting and grounding equipment for the operator/mat are the most essential components to protect ESD sensitive devices from ElectroStatic Discharge (ESD).
Where feasible, insulators should be eliminated from the EPA but where this is impossible (e.g. PC board substrate, insulative test fixtures or product plastic housings), the ions emitted by an ioniser can eliminate both negative and positive charges on an insulator.
ESD Packaging products are designed to protect ESD sensitive items from electrostatic damage during transportation and storage. Such protection is achieved by enveloping the device in a material with a shielding layer.
Personnel grounding is a fundamental principle of ESD control at ESD protected workstations. Wrist straps are the first line of defence against ESD.
Detecting and measuring static is essential to avoid damage to sensitive electronic devices. Inelco Hunter offers a comprehensive range of test instruments and consumables to help you avoid these problems.
