WHY ESD?

PROTECT ELECTRO STATIC SENSITIVE DEVICES

ABOUT ELECTROSTATIC DISCHARGE (ESD)

To a greater or lesser extent all contact between objects, every separation of one item from another, each sliding of one thing on another, causes a disturbance of electrical charge. When charge disturbance take place faster than charge redistribution, static charge accumulates. ESD occurs where charges of different electrostatic potentials meet. The flow of electrons is usually sudden and releases energy that can damage electrostatic sensitive devices (ESDs)
This is referred to as tribo electric generations.

Static charges of upto 30000 volts are not uncommon and can be generated by the simple act of walking across a floor, yet a discharge of only 10 volts can destroy a class 1 ESD sensitive device.

A material that inhibits the generation of tribo electric generation is classified as antistatic. An antistatic material can be:

Only conductive or static dissipative anti static material should be used in ESD protected areas.

uses special blended imported raw material to produce permanent ESD safe products like different sizes of bins, trays, containers, component organizers, cabinets, PCB carriers etc.
