ESD Product Guide
You know electrostatic discharge (ESD) monitoring is critical in semiconductor manufacturing, electronics assembly, film processing, and flat panel display production. Static electricity can negatively impact your product quality, throughput, and worker safety. It can also create problems in the processing of paper, fabrics, plastics, and powders due to cling and particulates.
To help you select ESD measurement equipment, we created a brief guide below.
Static Charge Monitoring
You can use our Trek instruments and sensors to monitor the static charge levels on products.
Locating and Measuring Static Charge
Our Trek handheld meters audit electrostatic protected areas (EPA) for surface voltage. This correlates to static charge accumulation.
Surface Resistance/Resistivity Measurements
Use our Trek instruments to measure the surface resistance or resistivity of materials and objects. This allows you to determine if they are in the proper resistance range to safely dissipate static charge-to-ground and preclude ESD events.
Ionization Calibration and Auditing
Use Trek charged plate monitors to measure the balance and decay time associated with air ionization systems. They are designed for use in bench testing, set-up, in situ performance checks, and calibration.
Material Dissipation Testing
Our Trek charged plate monitors are used to make material dissipation measurements by applying the time-required-for-discharge technique.
