Normally, electric charges are discharged slowly from surface of objects. However, if the difference in electric potential becomes too great the electrical current accelerates resulting in a sudden current surge.
An ESD protected area is called EPA. In an EPA area ESD protection must be observed in all materials, employeesâ€™ clothing and air humidity. Workstations and employees
in an EPA area must also be grounded with protective resistance (1 Mohm) to an ESD ground.
ESD protection ensures safe working environment.
In electronics industry, work is often carried out in an EPA area, that is protected from static discharge. Protection
in this case means effective grounding, which involves both grounding equipment and painting the frame of the ESD workstation with semi-conductive paint. We have extensive experience in developing, manufacturing
and supplying ESD furnishings.
All our workstations and related products are supplied with an electrically semi-conducting coat of paint and we
supply furnishings, seats and grounding components
for ESD-protected workstations. Our products meet
the requirements specified in the IEC-61340-5-1 standard.
