The ESD service kit for earthing personnel and assemblies offers protection against electrostatic discharge in organs.
Many electronic assemblies in organ building, like almost all electronic components, are sensitive to ESD (electrostatic discharge). For this reason, they are often delivered in antistatic packaging. To protect the module from damage, the usual ESD regulations must be observed.
- ESD mat that can be folded into a convenient carrying case
- ESD wrist bracelet.
- ESD terminals for connecting the mat and bracelet to a suitable (grounding) potential.
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is a spark or disruptive discharge caused by a large difference in potential which causes a short, high voltage impulse on an electrical device. Under unfavourable conditions, this voltage pulse can damage electrical components in the device. The cause of the potential difference is usually a charge caused by friction electricity (triboelectric effect) or influence. Friction electricity also occurs, for example, when walking over a carpet, whereby a person can be charged to approx. 30,000 V. This is the maximum amount of electricity that can be charged.
