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 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.
