ESD Wrist Straps
ESD Wrist Straps are designed to prevent electrostatic discharge (ESD) by safely grounding an electronic technician working with devices and components that are sensitive to an electrostatic charge.ESD Fabric Wrist Straps (AFWS series) have adjustable wrist bands and are made from polyester material with silver plated nylon fabric with a hypoallergenic silver-plated nylon thread for conductivity. The polyurethane coil insulation offers excellent coil memory. The soft woven fabric and curved buckle of the wrist band allows the skin to breathe and makes it very comfortable to wear. It has a maximum resistance of 160 ohms.
ESD Metal Wrist Straps (AMWS series) are premium grade wrist straps featuring a high quality adjustable, one-size-fits-all metal wrist band with an insulating outer surface with a stainless steel inner surface and a coil cord. A shorter, swivel type banana jack increases coil life, prevents cord tangles. and fits most bench grounds. It uses highly conductive copper sulfide nylon thread for conductivity and has a maximum resistance of 160 ohms. ESD Metal Wrist Straps meet or exceed the requirements of ANSI ESD-S20.20 and ESDA Standard 1.1-2006.
Applications: Aerospace Assembly, Contract Manufacturing, Electronic Assembly, Fiber Optics, Semi-conductor Facilities, and Solar Panel Manufacturing.
