2.5 Components that can be destroyed by electrostatic discharge (ESD)
● Bring components into contact only with ESD-compliant materials, e.g. ESD tables, ESD
● Only carry out measurements on the components if one of the following conditions is met:
surfaces, ESD packaging.
– The measuring device is grounded with a protective conductor, for example.
– The measuring head of a floating measuring device has been discharged directly before
The necessary ESD protective measures for the entire working range for electrostatically
sensitive devices are illustrated once again in the following drawings.
Precise instructions for ESD protective measures are specified in the standard
DIN EN 61340‑5‑1.
Conductive floor surface, is only effective in conjunction with ESD shoes or ESD shoe grounding
ESD shoes or ESD shoe grounding strips are only effective in conjunction with conductive flooring
ESD wrist strap
Cabinet ground connection
