Sparking is an obvious concern in areas where flammable gas or liquid is present and these areas require strict safety measures to prevent static electricity from build-up and discharge. ESD events can also frequently occur without a visible or audible spark and can severely damage sensitive electronic components and assemblies. Some components can be damaged by discharges as little as 30V. These invisible forms of ESD can cause labs and production manufacturing device failures and imperceptible forms of degradation that may affect reliability and performance of sensitive surface mounted electronics.
Test ESD Flooring to Protect Your Equipment and Devices from ESD
Detect, monitor, measure and report?static electricity and voltage generation (ANSI/ESD STM97.2) in combination with a person in work environments by testing ESD floor performance. Our Megohmmeter Model 6536 ESD Floor Kit tests both point-to-ground and point-to-point electrostatic discharge. The ESD kit provides all the necessary elements for compliance with the ANSI/ESD STM97.2-2006 standard. Simply place the two electrodes on the test flooring surface three feet apart and apply a known voltage across the surface of the electrically reactive floor material. Megohmmeter model 6536 will record the resistance within the material so you can determine if it falls within the standard acceptable ranges.
This ESD kit contains Megohmmeter model 6536, two 5 pound (2.3 kg) floor weights, also referred to as NFPA probes, that are in compliance with EOS/ESD 11.11 specifications. Each floor weight is coated with insulative paint and a conductive rubber base. The instrument, floor weights and test leads are packaged in a rugged field case.
The kit includes:
(1) field case
(1) Megohmmeter Model 6536
(2) 5ft color-coded (red/black) leads
(2) color-coded (red/black) alligator clips
(1) black test probe
(2) color-coded (red/black) grip probes
(2) 5 lb weights with conductive rubber bottom pad
(2) 4mm non-insulated adapters
(6) AA batteries, and a user manual
