How to install ESD Workstation
1. Lay the table mat flat on the workbench with the snaps toward the operator.
TIP: Mild heat (sun light) will remove creases caused by shipping.
2. Connect the common point ground cord to the table mat by snapping it to the left or right snap. image02
3. Connect the coil cord to the common point ground cord by plugging the banana plug into one of the ground cord's banana jacks. image03
4. Snap the wrist band to the coil cord. TIP: Make sure that the operator wears the wrist band on bare skin and tightens the band so that no gap exists between the skin and the band. image04
5. Lay the floor mat on the floor in front of the workbench with the snaps toward the bench.  
6. Connect the floor mat ground cord to one snap on the floor mat. image05
7. Connect the common point ground cord and floor mat ground cord to ground. Use the green wire building ground point as specified in EOS/ESD Standard 6. Connection to this ground point most easily accomplished by removing the center AC outlet plate cover screw, placing the screw through the eyelets from both ground cords, and replacing the screw. The wires can be moved to the left and right sides of the screw so that they do not obstruct the outlet. image06


Cautionary Notices:

WARNING: Only qualified personnel should work with exposed AC outlets. Consult with a qualified electrician to make ground connection if necessary. AC voltage is dangerous.

CAUTION: Exercise extreme care when using energized equipment at an ESD workstation. Ground Fault Current Interrupters should be considered to avoid shock. Most static control equipment is not designed to be used near voltages greater than 250 volts.


8. Mount the ESD Awareness Sign above the work area where it is clearly visible to both the operator and anyone approaching the work area. Before hanging the sign, clean any dust or oil from the wall before application for better adhesion. Next, remove the cover tape from the back of the adhesive strips, place the sign on the wall, and press firmly across the entire sign so that all of the adhesive contacts the wall. image07
9. Heel Grounders: Open the velcro strap. Remove foot from shoe and insert tab. Trim excess tab material with scissors if necessary. Place foot back into shoe and slip rubber cup onto the shoe's heel. Close velcro strap. Repeat procedure for other shoe. image08
Newly installed work stations should be tested for continuity. A surface resistivity meter with a "resistance to ground" function can be used to test continuity from the ground point to all part of the workstation.
