This is where ESD equipment are extremely important for preventing ESD events as these events can cause damage to electronic components. The ESD solution will have a laminate that will provide the static control feature and some equipment can also be engineered to be chemical & scratch resistant. Common ESD equipment includes ESD tables, chairs, footwear, wrist straps, carts, workstations, mats, and more.
Normally an ESD surface will have a high resistance typically between 1.0 x 109 and 1.0 x 106 ohms. This will not only prevent rapid discharge of electrostatic which could harm electronic devices but also will protect the user from being harmed. Generally, in industrial testing applications the device may use a very high voltage which can be incredibly dangerous if an ESD event were to happen.
While workbenches are popular in a variety of industries, computer workbenches provide several features specific to electronic and processing equipment. Common features include display mounts, ergonomic keyboard trays, CPU holders, cable and cord management devices, power distributors, rack mounts, arm mounts, ESD protection, document trays, drawers and cabinets all designed to improve organization and productivity while creating optimal storage conditions for computer components.
ESD Tables are the most universal and commonly used ESD protection items. The tables can be equipped with various additional features such as drawers, CPU holders, storage containers, light fixtures, and much more. These units will typically have an ergonomic design with a modular format for effective productivity.
