Typical Applications

ESD grounding accessories form part of a workplace safety system to monitor and/or eliminate the build-up or discharge of static electricity that may pose a risk to electrical components such as computer hard drives. Earth bonding plugs (also called grounding plugs) are designed as a safe and easy way to create an effective ESD grounding point for ESD products and ESD test equipment within an ESD protected area (EPA).


What are ESD grounding accessories used for?
ESD (electrostatic discharge) grounding accessories are components within ESD grounding loops. These accessories are used in workplaces where sensitive electronic equipment must be protected from static electricity, or where there's a danger of flammable liquids or gases igniting.

ESD protection is achieved by electrical grounding. Grounding accessories are components that may be required as part of an entire ESD grounding system. They're often used to connect and integrate ESD-safe mats, ESD continuous monitors, wrist straps, ESD safe shoe covers and other apparel, or ESD-safe surfaces.
