Monitor Antistatic Wrist Strap Grounds on the Production Line

Using a constant monitor to detect ESD ground faults is much better than periodically checking the wrist strap with an ordinary wrist strap tester. Faults detected by the constant monitor are realized immediately on the production line, before static can damage your product, not hours after the fact.

Significant advantages of using a constant monitor: • Immediate detection of ESD wrist strap ground faults, • Detects intermittent faults that a wrist strap tester may not catch, • No need to rely on operators to periodically test their wrist straps, • Improved product quality and reliability, • Comparable cost to wrist strap testers but with the added benefit of constant ground fault monitoring. • Eliminates periodic testing of wrist straps and table grounds • Relieves supervisors of keeping periodic test log records.

How a constant monitor works: Plug the ESD wrist strap ground cord into the grounding jack of the constant monitor right at the production workstation. The device grounds the wrist strap and simultaneously monitors for faults in the path from skin contact with the strap all the way to the earth ground. A good ground path causes the LED on the monitor to glow green (indicating GOOD). If a ground fault is detected, the LED will blink red (indicating FAULT), and the unit will sound an audible alarm.

Also available: Dual Constant Monitor S5182 to monitor two wrist straps at once, or Triple Constant Monitor CM420 to monitor two wrist straps and one bench mat.
