Continuous monitors provide operators with instant feedback on the status and functionality of their wrist strap and/or workstation. They detect split-second failures when the wrist strap is still in the "intermittent" stage. This is prior to a permanent "open" which could result in damage to ESD sensitive components. Continuous monitors verify the ground integrity of both the operator and ESD workstation and eliminate the need for periodic testing (and record keeping). Dual polarity technology
provides true continuous monitoring of wrist strap functionality and operator safety according to accepted industry standards. Dual-wire continuous monitors
are to be used with dual-wire wrist straps
and provide redundancy; even if one dual-wire wrist strap conductor is severed, the operator still has a reliable path-to-ground with the other conductor.
The EMIT Dual-Wire Dual-Operator Programmable Monitor monitors two operators and two ESD worksurfaces eliminating the need for periodic testing and record keeping of wrist straps. The Dual-Wire Dual-Operator Programmable Monitor uses low-voltage steady state DC continuous-loop technology to continuously monitor (versus pulsed or intermittent) dual-wire wrist strap functionality. Independent audio and visual alarm conditions make it easy to identify the status of the worksurfaces and operators.
The EMIT Zero Volt Monitor
provides continuous ground monitoring of two operators and their worksurfaces using ZERO VOLT MONITORING™resistive loop technology. No other method is as direct and reliable. This technology allows the operator totypically be near zero volts with respect to equipment ground. The Zero Volt Monitor
is also unaffected by capacitance variations associated with personnel and environmental conditions.
The EMIT Zero Volt Monitor (ZVM) Solo
is a single station continuous monitor for operator, supervisor, ESD worksurface, and metal tool fixture ground. It will continuously monitor the ground integrity and charge generation of one operator and supervisor as well as the ground integrity for one ESD worksurface and one optional metal tool fixture. This single station monitor also features communication ports that allow it to be used with EMIT SIM Software for data tracking and management.
The Vermason Body Voltage Monitor
is a single station continuous monitor for one operator, one ESD worksurface and one tool ground. A second monitored jack is featured for use by a supervisor or second operator.
