“The Social Rewind,” is a weekly compilation of what we thought were the most interesting, funny, or informational social media posts of the previous week. Q Source follows a variety of really fascinating companies and individuals on Twitter, Facebook & Google+ and we want to share the best of what they have to say.

Leading off this week’s column: Tektronix shared this post about a combination of human creativity and robotic arm technology to paint a picture. Imagine how this could be used to assist disabled people with basic tasks, allow machinery operators control in dangerous environments, and even open your beers for you as you sit on the couch watching the big game. Okay, we made that last one up, but it could happen.

In a somewhat related story, Oktoberfest is here and that means beer. Puritan’s post has great advice on how brewers of all sizes can keep bacteria out of their brew.

Okay, if you are one of those sit on the couch, drinking beers kinda folks, this post from Laboratory Equipment magazine might interest you. Read about how new research is leading to an “Exercise Pill.”

From couch potatoes we move over to gases. Agilent Technologies post looks at the scientist who discovered an entire section of the periodic table: Sir William Ramsay and his “noble gases.”

Do you know where “argon” got its name from?

Posted by Agilent Technologies on Tuesday, October 6, 2015

If gases make you think of hot air, perhaps this next post is appropriate. This 3D Printing Industry post is just in time for the presidential debates: Now you can 3D-print presidential candidate shoes (featuring Hillary and The Donald).

The Importance of Testing & Monitoring Your ESD Grounding Devices – Guest Blog

by Craig Zander, Transforming Technologies

In Craig’s debut Guest Blog for Q Source, he explains the importance of testing and monitoring of ESD grounding devices.

Transforming Technologies PDT 800K Test Station
The first line of defense for protecting electronic devices and assemblies from damage due to Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) is to properly ground all personnel that come in contact with the product. When a person is effectively grounded, all of the voltage that accumulates on their body when moving rapidly travels to ground before it can affect the product.

The most common and reliable method for grounding operators is the wrist strap and coil cord combination. The conductive materials inside the wrist band contact the skin and transfer the voltage from the operator through the cord and to ground. When worn correctly, and tested or monitored, wrist straps are the preferred method for grounding people.

When grounding a person through a wrist strap, ANSI/ESD S20.20 requires the resistance of the person to equipment ground to be less than 3.5 x 107 ohm (35 meg ohm). Typically, the resistance to ground of a person properly connected with a wrist strap is just over 1 meg ohm (the value of the resistor in the cord assembly).

Wrist strap and coil cord assemblies need to be tested or monitored regularly. Some companies chose to test the wrist strap system one or more times per day at central testing stations (for example, the PDT 800K Test Station). Other companies opt to continuously monitor (using a device such as the CM1602 Constant Monitor) the wrist strap connection so that product is not handled if the grounding system fails.
 
Transforming Technologies CM1602 Constant Monitor
There are situations, however, when being connected to a ground jack via a cord is not conducive to efficient or even safe operation. Operations that involve frequent transportation of product within the facility, as well as operations that involve machinery, present a challenge to the wrist strap and coil cord grounding method. In these cases, factories may use a combination of conductive flooring and foot grounders to effectively ground the operator.

The requirements for grounding a person through flooring and footwear have changed in the ANSI/ESD S20.20 2014 Standard. Previous versions of ANSI/ESD S20.20 provided you with two options. If the resistance from the person through the footwear, through the floor and to ground was less than 35 megohm, no further testing was necessary. If the resistance was greater than 35 megohm, you could still meet the requirements of the standard if the resistance was less than 1.0 x 109 ohms and you can demonstrate that the operators generate less than 100 volts. The latest version of S20.20 (ANSI/ESD S20.20-2014) requires the resistance test and the walking voltage test for qualifying flooring and footwear materials together. While many flooring and footwear options may pass the resistance test, it has been discovered that some combinations of floor materials and foot grounding materials do not work well together.

To test the walking voltage generation of flooring and footwear systems you use ANSI/ESD STM 97.2 Floor Materials and Footwear - Voltage Measurement in Combination with a Person. This test involves recording the voltage of a person while they perform a repetitive walking pattern. To record the voltage you can use a charge plate monitor with data recording capability, or a similar instrument with the same specifications listed in the test method.

Body voltage measurement test set-up.
The new software “Digilloscope”
can mark the five highest
peaks automatically and calculate
the average value.
Transforming Technologies developed the Warmbier WT5000 Walking Test Kit to meet the needs of the ANSI/ESD STM 97.2 test. The WT5000 is a battery-operated instrument that is easily transported to various areas of the factory floor. The system includes the trademarked data acquisition and analysis software “Digilloscope for Windows™.”

The WT5000 records the voltage on the operator while they are performing the walking steps called out in the standard. Once several repetitions of the pattern are complete, the software will provide the peak voltage and average value. The data is used to confirm compliance to standards and to determine the lowest possible voltage device (Human Body Model Discharge Threshold) that can be handled in the facility.

Thanks for that very important information about ESD control and testing, Craig. We look forward to future Guest Blogs to learn from your expertise.
