Thanks for the help but I do have another question. First I guess that just the touching of the smock to the skin is anough to give the charge on the person a path to the smock. OK I can accept that if button up at the breast and sleeves. Now I kno

The first thing that I would do is contact the smock manufacturer and ask them for advice on testing the smocks. ESD FROM A TO Z 2nd ed. (Kolyer) states that: smocks should have a resistivity of less than 10^12/sq and must not shed steel fibers.

Rob is right. ESD flooring is "Conductive" which means it can drain ESD from the body. But if you have an insulated shoe, it does not good, the ESD remains on the body. Now if you wear a smock, then you can rub ballons in your hair and touch any

LarryP, ESD smocks in combination with a wrist strap provide a path to ground for any charge potential. An operator wearing a smock while grounded will provide a path to ground for the chair. With an ESD chair you can have antistatic or static

We are looking at ESD chairs in our EPROM room. Currently we are using smocks with wrist straps, this was set up before me. Is there any special or different things that needs to be done to the smocks to make them work with an ESD chair?

We have a granite table out on our production floor. We use the table along with metal parallel bars and a height gauge to measure component height. Some of these boards have components on them that may be ESD sensitive. Does anyone have experience w

We agree with Ken. What does your field meter tell you? Taking it a step further [erzit backward?], what is it about the measurement that requires the granite surface? Wouldn't an ESD protected bench top be as flat as needed for most gauging like

Granite is a porous material and if anyone decided to clean this material you probably have an insulative barrier thus you would never have static dissipation. Spend $45.00 and put a mat over the granite or spend $80.00 and get an esd laminate materi
