How We Handle Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)
We’ve all been zapped by static electricity — the common term for electrostatic discharge — after walking across a carpet and reaching for the door handle or a light switch. But if that were to happen in our manufacturing facility here at Electro Soft, the results could be disastrous. Even one single, tiny spark or shock can severely damage sensitive electrical equipment.
That’s why we take electrostatic discharge seriously. Our production staff wears ESD jackets and heel straps while working in Electrostatic Discharge Protected Areas (EPA). We follow the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) direction on ESD safety. Electro Soft has been ESD Floor Tested and certified per ANSI/ESD S20.20.
What, exactly, is electrostatic discharge (ESD), and why can it cause such damage to electronics? Science tells us that ESD is caused when the electrons that have built up on an object do not equal the object’s number of protons. The electrons have to go somewhere to balance things out, which is what causes those tiny sparks. Think of ESD as a miniature lightning storm. Like its big brother, ESD energy will find its way to, and through, the nearest object. An ESD can be thousands of volts, so when it comes into contact with electronics circuitry designed for much lower voltage, it can easily destroy critical components.
Below are two videos we developed to educate others about ESD.
