The ESD Problem

Analysis of devices returned as non-conforming or defective showed that 60-75 % of such devices were damaged by electrical over-stress (EOS) or electrostatic discharge (ESD). Recently it has been reported that up to 90% of the failures in newer technology devices are attributable to EOS/ESD. Studies show that 70% of EOS/ESD failures are caused by incorrect handling of sensitive devices by people who were not properly grounded.

The cost to industry from static damage is estimated to be tens of millions of pounds, which can be alleviated using the Sentry Static Control and Monitoring System.

The Sentry Solution

More than just an ESD tester, the Sentry MkIII is a powerful, network-enabled, measurement system with built-in data logging, allowing easy compliance with ISO 9000.

With its rugged construction, LCD display, powerful software analysis and configuration tools, and the ability to schedule tests for individual operators, Sentry offers a new concept in the avoidance of component damage from ESD.

In a single, swift operation, Sentry provides a totally effective method of verifying the integrity of protective devices worn by personnel entering static sensitive areas, so replacing inefficient and expensive paper-based systems, which offer limited checking and non-verifiable recording.
