Desco Introduces New stat-A-REST™ Foot Grounder

foot grounderDesco has introduced the new stat-A-Rest™ foot grounder. stat-A-REST™ is a new, innovative ESD footwear product. The product employs a unique static dissipation unit-sole securely affixed to the bottom of the user’s footwear through a lightweight elastomer perimeter attachment system.

stat-A-REST™ provides a superior footwear solution in ESD-sensitive workplaces over alternatives in the market including strap-type products and ESD shoes. The electrical performance of stat-A-Rest™ footwear is excellent, with values in the mid 107 ohms range for operator resistance-to-ground measurements made using the methods called out in ANSI/ESD STM97.1. stat-A-REST™ foot grounders are made in the United States of America.

  • Full-Coverage Foot Grounder with Contact Points on Sole and Heel Area
    Converts non-ESD footwear to ESD footwear; choice for when handling more sensitive devices (Human Body Model Class 0A)*
  • Walking Voltage Generation <50 Volts Tested per ANSI/ESD STM97.2
    Easily meets the ANSI/ESD S20.20 < 100 volt peak body voltage requirement for use as an ESD footwear component in personnel grounding footwear / flooring system.
  • Point-to-Groundable Point Resistance < 1 x 109 ohms
    Meets ANSI/ESD S20.20 required limit tested per ANSI/ESD STM97.1, ESD SP9.2, and ESD TR53
  • Tear and Chemical Resistant Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) Material
    Increases the service life of foot grounder.
  • Non-Marring Material
    Will not leave marks on floors (or operator’s shoes); reducing maintenance costs of touching up on floors.
  • Conductive 8-Strand Nylon Polyester Grounding Tab
    Additional conductive material provides reliable connection with operator’s sweat-layer.
  • Made in the United States of America
    This item is stocked in Canton, MA

*Foot grounders must be used with an ESD floor (recommend conductive flooring < 1 x 106 ohms) to create a path-to-ground and minimize charge generation

VSWR and its Effects on Power Amplifiers

Voltage Standing Wave Ratio results from an impedance mismatch between a source (an amplifier) and a load (test application). This mismatch can influence the performance of the source.
