StaticStop Implements New Floor Tester Rental Program

Reading time ( words)

StaticStop, a division of SelecTech, Inc., and a leader in the manufacture of innovative, announced its new program that enables customers to rent meters to test their flooring. The test will certify if flooring meets the ANSI/ESD STM7.1 ESD Association Standard Test Method for the Protection of Electrostatic Discharge Susceptible Items - Floor Materials-Resistive Characterization of Materials. 

In order for a floor to effectively provide static protection, it must be able to conduct static electric charges away from people and equipment.  This ability is measured by the electrical resistance of the floor.  The lower the electrical resistance, the better the floor can conduct these charges.  This property can be effectively and easily measured using StaticStop’s rental meter and following ANSI/ESD STM 7.1.

The ANSI/ESD test method evaluates floor materials used to control electrostatic charge. This method covers all floor materials including floor mats, floor coverings, coatings, paints and floor finishes.

StaticStop FreeStyle ESD has lifetime guaranteed electrical properties, meets CA 1350 Indoor Air Quality and is MAS Certified Green. FreeStyle ESD and SelecTile ESD, as well as the Gluedown GroundFloor ESD tiles meet all ANSI 20.20 standards.

Chapter 1 Excerpt: The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to Process Validation

The original principle underlying the IPC’s ionic cleanliness requirement was that the mobility of surface ions, detectable from SIR measurements, would correlate to a maximum value of detectable ionic elements permissible on the circuit surface. The industry required a test that was both fast and accurate for process control. Thus, a simplified ion chromatograph that was able to detect ionic elements without differentiation was created.

SMTA Europe Solder Finish Webinar Addresses Defects Causes and Cures

12/14/2020 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
“What is your most common PCB problem?” A survey conducted by Bob Willis had revealed finish solderability to be the predominant contender, and it was clear that the choice of solderable finish applied to surface mount boards could have a significant effect on the assembly yield and cost of the final circuit. SMTA Europe organised an informative and enlightening webinar this month entitled “Guide to PCB Solder Finishes—Process Defects Causes and Cures,” with soldering specialist Bob Willis as presenter.

SMTA Europe Webinar: What Is a Good Solder Joint, and How Can Solder Joints Be Tested?

11/18/2020 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
What is a good solder joint? And how can they be tested not only for purposes of process characterisation, optimisation, monitoring, and control but also for ensuring their long-term reliability? Pete Starkey details a webinar organised by the Europe Chapter of SMTA that was presented by Bob Willis, an expert in soldering, assembly technologies, and failure analysis.
