Question Question with the abundance of PC screens on production floors. What are the guidelines to ensure fields created from front, back and sides do not corrupt ESDS items? Is there a minimum distance these monitors should be kept away from ESD sensitive components and assemblies?
Answer According to ANSI/ESD-S20.20-1999, section (Protected Areas Guidance), all process essential insulators (like monitor screens) that have electrostatic fields that exceed 2,000 volts should be kept at a minimum distance of 12 inches from ESDS items. 2,000 volts is a measure of the electrostatic field at the point of measurement and is not necessarily directly related to the electrical potential of the item. Our Reztore™ Topical Antistat can be applied to monitor surfaces to substantially reduce charge generation.
