Guarantees having the right cord when needed
Ground cord for mats and surfaces
Stacking snap allows it to be used as a common point ground
Fits either stud or socket on mat
Terminated with a #10 (0.200") ring terminal
Built-in one megohm resistor
NOTE: Per ESD 6.1 "Provisions may be made to include a resistor where it may be required for a purpose other than ESD."
ESD Handbook TR 20.20 paragraph 5.1.3 Basic Grounding Requirements "The first step in ensuring that everything in an EPA is at the same electrical potential is to ground all conductive components of the work area (worksurfaces, people, equipment, etc.) to the same electrical ground point. This point is called the common point ground. The next step in completing the ground circuit is to connect the common point ground to the equipment ground (third wire, green)"
One Megohm resistor is required in wrist straps, however, the recommended practice is hard ground per ANSI/EOS/ESD S6.1 that is no resistor between the common point ground terminal and a work surface floor mat, or shelving. Per ANSI/ESD S20.20 Table 1 Grounding System Technical Requirement, the Recommended Range is less than 1 ohm AC impedance.
