SSE has designed a new constant ESD wrist strap and mat monitor which can eliminate the need for periodic testing and recording.
Fitted to a workstation, the unit continuously monitors the integrity of an operator’s wrist strap and lead as well as the grounding of the dissipative bench mat at an ESD workstation. An audible alarm sounds instantaneously if the connection to ground of either the operator or the bench mat is lost.
It incorporates a wrist strap ‘park’ stud for when the operator is away from the bench and a simple body mass adjustment feature for individual users if necessary. They are also easily adapted to monitor the wrist strap system only, if required
