Adjustable elasticated wristband that is comfortable and durable. Designed to help keep you safe from static discharge when used with the appropriate ESD matting and grounding accessories. Silver monofilaments provide effective contact between the band and your skin to ensure that it can protect you. The 10 mm male stud is designed to be fitted to a coil cord (sold separately), which should then be attached to a common ground point. Meets IEC61340-5-1.
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can pose a serious risk in environments with a lot of electrical equipment and is of particular concern to electronics manufacturing businesses. ESD not only exposes workers to static shock but it can also permanently damage sensitive electronical components. Creating an ESD protected area (EPA) mitigates these hazards by preventing the build-up of static charge through the grounding of both workers and conductive materials. To create a complete EPA, combine static-dissipative mats with grounding wristbands or heel straps. For maximum performance your mat should be used with a grounding wire and bonding plug.
