RS PRO Wristband and Heel Grounder Testing Station
The RS PRO Compact Tester series can be used to test personnel wrist straps and footwear for measuring a static charge. The tester uses either red or green LEDs and an audible alarm to indicate whether the measured resistance is within the range specified by EN 61340-5-1. A foot plate is included with the RS Compact Tester to allow users to test both their footwear and wrist strap. The Compact Tester is powered by a 9V PP3 battery for portability.
This ESD meter measures the resistance of the external circuit between the metal contact button and the cord connectors or the foot test plates. The wrist band and cord, plates, footwear, connection to the operator, operators body resistance and the fingertip button contact are all part of the circuit. In case of a failure being indicated, determine whether the wrist strap or the footwear alone is failing by ensuring that the other elements of the circuit are sound.

ESD (electro static discharge) test meters are used to measure the level of electrostatic discharge on a person, surface, or piece of equipment. This is to prevent damage to other equipment, such as integrated circuits, that might be caused by sparks from excess ESD. Ideal for electronic assembly areas.

How do ESD test meters work?
ESD test meters measure electrostatic discharge by monitoring the surface resistance level to determine whether it is within an acceptable range for safety. An alarm and LED indication (green or red light) is often used to indicate this. Regular testing of ESD wrist straps and grounding cords, heel straps and ESD footwear is essential for static control.
What are ESD grounding wrist straps used for?
Workers in the electronics industry commonly use SD grounding wrist straps to protect sensitive electronic components and equipment from electrostatic discharge. In other applications they're used to prevent electrical sparks that could ignite flammable liquids, gases and explosives.
