The Desco 09086 Metal Expansion Wristband and Coil Cord creates a path-to-ground for an operator with resistance <3.5 x 107 ohms per the required limits of ANSI/ESD S20.20, tested per ANSI/ESD S1.1 or ESD TR53.
The metal expansion wristband has medical grade series stainless steel backplate and links that creates a more reliable path-to-ground1 for the operator.
The solid stainless steel machined snap stud will provide a consistent 1-5 pound release to prevent accidental disconnects between wristband and cord.
The six foot (12 inches of coils) coil cord is put through Strain Relief Tests over 1 Million Cycles; 62 times the minimum requirement per ESD S1.1. This eliminates intermittent failures that occur with less durable cords and extends the lifespan of the wrist strap.
The patented2 Right Angled Banana Plug is designed to prevent wear to banana springs that will leads to accidental disconnects from banana jacks.
A relaxed retraction coil cord has a soft pull that does not tug on the wearer’s arm.
The low profile snap design prevents the cord from being disconnected or getting in the way of operator’s work area.
Each unit is date coded so that the lifespan of the product may be tracked to ensure quality control.
It meets UL requirements to ensure operator safety.
This product is made in the USA.
