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 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.
