It is estimated Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) damage costs the American industry 5 billion dollars annually. ESD is the rapid movement of a charge from one object to another. This training course shows how routine actions, such as walking across a carpeted floor or picking up an object, can generate electricity that when released, can damage electrical components.

Viewers learn how ESD can be neutralized through 2 types of grounding: resistive and common point. Resistive grounding includes the use of wrist wraps and shoe, toe, and heel grounders. Common point grounding is a terminal where people and work surfaces are connected to the ground. This course also explains how work areas can be ESD protected through the use of ionizers, static dissipative flooring, topical anti-stats, and other precautionary measures.

Watch this training course to learn how to prevent ESD from damaging sensitive electric equipment.
