Dual Wire ESD Monitors and Wrist Straps – vs Single Wire – What’s the Difference? Reposted from Our Friends at SCS-Static-Control Solutions Dual wire ESD
Are Anti-Static Bags Conductive? What’s the Difference Between Anti-Static and Static Shielding Bags?
Standard plastic bags, commonly made of polyethylene, fail to protect ESD-sensitive devices from the flow of electrically charged objects caused by contact, and electrical short, or dielectric breakdown. ESD is not only a silent killer in high-tech electronics manufacturing and production, but also during hobbyist projects or small-batch electronics repair. Electronic devices, IC components, and other ESD-sensitive devices are not safe from ESD events when stored, handled, or transported outside an ESD safe environment inside an anti-static bag.
Here’s a comparison of an American made BenchPro ESD laminate workstation versus a knock-off import.
What is Conductive Flooring? For the full guide to ANSI/ESD S20.20 flooring specifications, see here. Electrically conductive flooring is sometimes (semi-accurately) referred to as anti-static conductive

Answers to Common ESD Questions Such As When Do You Need an ESD Wrist Strap?
Here’s where you can find extra large ESD trash bags.
Because flat panel display (FPD) manufacturing is performed in a cleanroom environment, it faces the same problems resulting from static electricity buildup that other high
Static Free Flooring, ESD Tile, and and ESD Coatings Updated 9/27/17 As static sensitive electronic components grow more sophisticated, so do consumers of static-control flooring.
Today, more than ever, meeting the complex challenge of reducing ESD losses requires more than reliance on faith alone. Users require a way to legitimately evaluate and compare competing brands and types of products. They need objective confirmation that their ESD control program provides effective solutions to their unique ESD problems.
