Question..What is ESD
Answer.. Electro Static Discharge. An uncontrolled surge of 'static' between objects with differenct voltage potentials.
Question.. What is an EPA
Answer.. Electrostatic Protected Area. A static safe handling areacould be a bench, a room or any other designated area and should not have and 'static field' greater than 100v maximum!
Question.. What is Static
Answer.. An electrical charge/ field that isn't moving
Question.. What is Anti Static
Answer.. Minimal generation or retention of a 'static' charge.
Question.. What does 'conductive' mean
Answer.. Low resistance. IE less than 1 meg-ohm (106) and 1000 meg-ohm (109)
Question.. What is 'static dissipative'
Answer.. Increased resistance, which protects better against an ESD (between 1 meg-ohm and 1000 meg-ohm)
Question .. What is 'Insulative'
Answer.. Does not allow the free flow of electrons, therefore it will more than likely cause problems eg prevent a path to earth, hold a 'static' field etc.
Question.. What is 'Faraday Cage'
Answer.. A conductive battier against ESD IE a metallised sheilding bad or conductive box.
Question.. What is 'tribocharge'
Answer.. To generate 'static' by rubbing or separating of surfaces.
Question.. What is 'Potential Difference'
Answer.. A static voltage difference between two items.
