Monitors operator and work surface Work surface monitoring may be disabled, providing user with more flexibility
NEW Mat ground connection for grounding and verifying resistance of mat to ground
NEW Dual status LEDs for operator monitoring
Housing has tabs with holes, with screws and adhesive backed Velcro® strips provided
Optional mounting means unit is suitable to most any machinery or work, even in hard to reach locations
Audible and LED visual alarms the instant a failure occurs
Alerting user and supervisor of problem, allowing immediate corrective action
Park snap feature Provides means for operator to disconnect wrist strap cord when normally leaving work area without audible alarm sounding & provides means of wrist cord storage
Wave Distortion Technology provides real-time monitoring Pays for itself - ensures ESD protected workstation, reducing catastrophic failures and latent defects
Utilizes reliable wave distortion technology Provides true 100% continuous monitoring, not pulsed current that's off over 90% of time
Can use with any brand of single-wire wrist strap and cord components Life-cycle costs of monitor/wrist strap/cord are 66% lower than dual-wire approach
Miniscule electrical current required to generate waveform No reported case of skin irritation
Designed for use by 5 foot tall 90 pound to 6 foot 5 inch 250 pound person Individual adjustment for each operator is not necessary
Provided with calibration to NIST traceable standards Important for users to maintain NIST calibration at their facility
Made in America
Note: Continuous Monitors pay for themselves improving quality, productivity, eliminating wrist strap daily testing and test result logging. Per ESD-S1.1 paragraph 6.1.3 Frequency of Functional Testing "The wrist strap system should be tested daily to ensure proper electrical value. Daily testing may be omitted if constant monitoring is used."
Per ESD Handbook TR 20.20 paragraph 126.96.36.199.4 "Typical test programs recommend that wrist straps that are used daily should be tested daily. However, if the products that are being produced are of such value that knowledge of a continuous, reliable ground is needed, and then continuous monitoring should be considered or even required."
Note: Work surface must have a conductive layer such as Dual Layer Rubber or Dissipative 3 Layer Vinyl or NVMT Dissipative Laminate with conductive buried layers. SPI Continuous Monitors are not recommended for use with homogeneous matting.
