ACL Staticide's Five Tips for ESD Control

ACL Staticide ESD Floor Finish
We're always looking for useful tips to share with you and today we have some good ones about ESD Control. The folks over at ACL Staticide have taken the definitions of the ESD Association and created a list of Top Five Basic Rules for ESD Control.

ACL's Five Basic Rules for ESD Control are:
  1. Define the boundaries of the environment in which unprotected electrostatic sensitive devices will be present. This is the ESD protective area.
  2. Define the sensitivity of devices to be handled in the ESD protective area.
  3. Do not contaminate the area with unnecessary non-static controlled materials.
  4. Establish a suitable static control program that both limits static generation to less than the damage threshold of the most sensitive device in the environment, and provides a safe, defined path for the dissipation of static charges.
  5. Audit the ESD protective area regularly to ensure that static control is maintained. Document the findings for future reference.
