All electronic devices are susceptible to electrical damage, as are the people who work on them. One common hazard is electrostatic discharge or ESD. This phenomenon occurs when there is an electrical difference between two conductive materials close to each other and sufficient voltage exists between them. The resulting charge imbalance can damage semiconductors, cause logic errors, and can lead to potentially dangerous electrical shocks.
With sensitive components and manufacturing processes, ESD control is critical in preventing component damage and scrap rates. Regardless of industry, many companies have an ESD control program in place, which includes an analysis of the process risk level and a plan for reducing ESD events.
However, with different industries having different needs for their programs, no one solution fits all. That’s why there are various types of ESD flooring systems available to help manage ESD according to specific needs.
