ESD Assessment
An ESD/EOS Assessment from Restronics New England covers your whole facility. Plus, it’s offered ”on us.”

The majority of ESD (electrostatic discharge) reviews are simple; looking at connections ensuring wrist straps and other static control products are working correctly. However, they are not keeping pace with the demands of the modern electronics manufacturing industry. The EOS/ESD Assessment goes further than the typical survey to help you identify and address EOS and ESD concerns. In conjunction with our partners, we will check your workstations, production tools, chairs, carts, ESD floors and ESD containers.

The EOS/ESD Assessment also provides a sampling of select areas within your facility. These include shipping/receiving, soldering stations, functional test, and SMT lines. The Assessment Report provides numeric findings, gaps between the program and industry standards ANSI/ESD S20.20 and IPC-A-610E, references to best practices, and recommendations for improvements.

If you are wanting to learn more about ESD control for your company, we have a valuable, free resource – the ESD Awareness Guide, where you’ll learn more about:

A good ESD control program is as strong as its weakest link. Paying attention to these fundamental ESD control principles is where you should begin:

  • Clear identification of ESD vulnerable components and products.
  • Grounding of all conductors, even personnel, in an ESD protected area.
  • Removal of non-essential insulators from ESD protected areas and neutralization of charges on essential insulators via ionization.
  • Enclosure of ESD-susceptible items in static-shielding packaging when transported or stored outside an ESD protected area.
