Dust on PCB | 29 February, 2012

Hello guys, I have an issue and I hope you can share some comments; I'm in a High mix low volume enviroment, as result I have several PCBs "stored" in carts, what is the best method to clean it? they have a lot of dust, I think ionized air gun will work, what do you think? Is there a way to cover those carts? what recommendations can you share (ESD safe, plastic, other material)?

PS.- I know the root cause is that we built many boards that are not used inmediatelly and I'm working on that side already.

Thanks for your time!

As long as you're convinced that your ionized air gun is not a static generator, it should work fine in dedusting your boards.

As you say, covering your board racks while the boards are being stored is probably a better solution. If you google 'esd cart cover' you find some contacts for cart covers.
