One of the most common causes of electrostatic damage is the direct transfer of electrostatic charge from the human body. When one walks across a floor, an electrostatic charge accumulates on the body. Simple contact of a finger allows the body to discharge, possibly causing device to damage.
The Model PST-01 is designed to measure the static Voltages carried on a personnel. It is a precession instrument to verify whether Personnel entering an ESD safe area are carrying any hazardous charges on themselves.
It is very simple to use and only requires the personnel under test to touch the plate on the instrument and directly read the charge level in volts on the meter. Apart from the measuring the voltages, it can also be used to safely drain away the charges from the personnel. The instrument has a special feature of visual and audible “HAZARD” indication when it measures more than +/-100V. It is very quick and convenient method to check personnel voltages.
Moreover the tester will audit any potential static generator or dissipater, like. Wrist straps, heel grounders, toe straps, static safe shoes, floor mats, etc....
