The Desco 09198 metal expansion wristband, when used with a coil cord, creates a path-to-ground for an operator with a resistance of ,3.5 x 107 ohms per the required limits of the ANSI/ESD S20.20 or ESD TR53.
The wristband's magnetic connection to the coil cord provides a superior electrical connection to eliminate intermittent failures of traditional snaps and extends the lifespan of the wrist strap.
The Magsnap is more reliable and provides consistent retention and release performance. It maintains a 1 - 5 pound release to prevent accidental disconnects and increased safety.
The patented size adjustment is designed to allow the operator to adjust the circumference size (5.75" to 13") to their wrist size and the bright color allows supervisors to see that the operator is wearing a wrist strap.
The backplate and links of this wristband are made with medical grade series stainless steel that creates a more reliable path-to-ground for the operator and is designed not to pinch or pull hair for a more comfortable wear.
The durable metal band is long wearing and easy to clean and makes superior contact with the skin for reliable removal of generated static charges.
The non-flaking or scratching laminated insulator on all external surfaces protects the operators from electrical hazards and provides many years of product life while the medical grade 300 series stainless steel used for all metal parts eliminates allergic skin reactions for most people.
Date coding is provided so that the lifespan of the product may tracked and to ensure quality control.
This product meets UL requirements to ensure operator safety.

1. Metal expansion bracelet style wrist cuffs may trap moisture underneath
and can be more effective for people with dry skin."

The Desco 09198 coil cord has a high visibility color that allows supervisors to easily see that workers are wearing the wrist bands and cords.
The rapid retraction strength polyurethane coil cords provides high memory and less coil cord dragging on the work surface.
The superior resistor connection strain relief greatly exceeds ESD S1.1 Bending Life Test. with the ongoing testing at 51,596772 cycles vs. the 16,000 cycles requirement
The patented contoured spring supported banana plug ensures a reliable path to ground connection by expanding the banana plug into the socket.
Each unit is date coded for traceability and quality control.
The improved low profile snap design keeps the cord from being disconnected. The spring loaded 4mm stainless steel constant contact snap provides constant electrical contact.
A one megohm series resistor is included in the design to protect the operator from accidental contact with equipment line voltage.
