ESD Association standards and publications are designed to serve the public ( This foreword is not part of ESD Association Technical Report TR). For Compliance Verification periodic testing, how frequently should an ESD control item be checked? Answer: It is user defined, so it is up to you. Best practice is.

Published by Immanuel Seagrave Modified over 4 years ago. Can be purchased from TR53 includes equipment, test procedures and troubleshooting tips to periodically verify the performance of ESD protective equipment and materials. An EPA can consist of a single workstation, entire room or building.
Report Visual Observations Desco. Manufacturers may add resistance to the grounding conductors for purposes other than ESD e. Where added resistance is not present, a direct connection from the ESD technical element to the common point ground or common connection point is acceptable and recommended. Added resistance is acceptable for the purposes of controlling ESD provided electrostatic accumulation does not exceed specific EPA requirements.
The typical added resistance in grounding conductors is 1 megohm, although other values may exd specified. How well the material conducts charges to ground; whether material is or can be grounded Rtg or Resistance to ground The resistance in ohms measured between a single electrode placed on a surface and ground. Rtt or Point-to-point resistance or top to top The resistance in ohms measured between two electrodes placed on any surface.
The best test is a system test Rtg dsd to equipment ground, not to ground point on mat which is resistance to groundable point Rtgp Surface Resistivity is independent of location if the material is homogenous.
Theoretically, Resistivity is 10 times greater than Resistance, i. The proper unit of measure for Surface Resistivity is ohms. Confusion is one of the reasons that the ESD Association has recently made this change. Square is rr53 dimensionless unit; it only signifies that the measurement is resistivity and not resistance.
It is the geometrical constant in converting a 4 point probe measurement into surface resistivity typically when measuring silicon wafers or other materials in FAB labs and was erroneously adopted for ESD control.
The square is independent of the area measured, it could represent a square millimeter or a square kilometer As discussed in the literature, this terminology is incorrect.
The actual measurement is ohms only. Report Rtt of the material itself.

If fail high, other troubleshooting might include testing each component separately using an ohmmeter. Using an extension cord and an AC Outlet Analyzer is due to the fact that often it is difficult to find an assessable AC electrical outlet. Once you find one, use it to make numerous measurements. Typically a banana plug does not fit securely in the ground of an AC electrical outlet. By using an AC Outlet Analyzer, you immediately test that the outlet is wired correctly while having a snug banana jack.
As the alcohol evaporates, it cools the surface and thus condenses moisture on the surface. A minimum of three of the five tests should be conducted in those areas that are subject to wear or that have chemical or water spillage or that are visibly dirty. If tiles, place electrodes on different tiles. Report Rtg and Rtt if measured Desco. The charge results in an electrostatic potential or voltage between the body and ground: This voltage can be damaging to ESDS devices. To maintain body voltage to less than volts, the body must be electrically connected to ground.
This resistance is a key factor in limiting the voltage observed on the body. For a given body movement. Figure 14 shows the relationship between body voltage and resistance to ground. With person connected to isolated conductive plate via a wrist strap and bulldog clip, and moving feet, report highest peak voltage Desco. Note peak voltage Desco. Measure what charge can be generated on item Use Static Field Meter to measure ability to charge after rubbing item with hand or on your clothing.
Report voltage; report observations of closest distance to ESD Sensitive component or assembly Desco. Typically display ElectroStatic field in kilovolts so 1. A Separate the insulator from the ESD-sensitive device by a distance of 30 cm 12 inches ; or B Use ionization or other charge mitigating techniques to neutralize the charge.
The accurate measurement of electrostatic fields requires that the person making the measurement is familiar with the operation of the measuring equipment.

Most hand held meters require that the reading be taken at a fixed distance from the object. Ssd also normally specify that the object has a minimum dimension of fixed size in order to get an accurate reading. If one allows insulators to be placed upon a properly grounded ESD worksurface, lots of money is being wasted as the path to ground of items placed on the mat may be blocked.
Can use Surface Resistance Megohmmeter with two 5 Electrodes sleeve to sleeve Rtt Place Garment on insulative surface; place one 5 electrode on each sleeve or cuff.
Ionization systems provide neutralization of charges on these necessary non-conductive items circuit board materials and some device packages are examples of necessary non-conductors. Remove from the surface only those items that might block airflow.
Technician and Ionization Test Kit to be grounded. If adjustable, zero reading, and then locate test fixture on worksurface furthest away from the ionizer where ESD sensitive products are handled.
With Ionizer operating at normal speed, use a stop watch or count time in seconds it takes to go from 1, volt reading to volts. Change polarity and repeat discharge time test -1, volts to volts Measure Offset Voltage or Balance reading after allowing sufficient time for reading to stabilize.
Users should be aware that some packaging materials may be humidity dependent and may have limited shelf life. They may also lose static shielding properties by essd, puncturing and folding. Under Triboelectric Charge, it states: Heating interior air in the winter months dries out the already dry air in fr53 higher latitudes. It is recognized that some hygroscopic materials readily accepts moisture may have results that fluctuate and do not remain within a specified minimum or maximum resistance range as the environmental conditions change.
