Provided with calibration to NIST traceable standards. Range: 800 Kilohms - 10 Megohms. NIST Calibrated: Calibrated with accepted procedures and standards traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Made in America. "Compliance verification should be performed prior to each use (daily, shift change, etc.). The accumulation of insulative materials may increase the foot grounder system resistance. If foot grounders are worn outside the ESD protected area testing for functionality before reentry to the ESD protected area should be considered." (ESD SP9.2 APPENDIX B - Foot Grounder Usage Guidance). "A log should be maintained which verifies that personnel have tested their personal grounding devices." (ANSI/ESD S20.20 Paragraph 126.96.36.199 Personnel Grounding Guidance). "Frequency of Functional Testing: The wrist strap system should be tested daily to ensure proper electrical value. Nominally, the upper resistance reading should be less than or equal to 10 megohms or a user-defined value." (ANSI/ESD S1.1-2006 Annex A3).
Portable small package; supervisor can use to spot check users on shop floor
For use with single wire wrist straps per ESD TR53
Battery powered 9 V tester, no adapter needed
Test results include fail low, pass, and fail high; if wrist strap fails, the operator will know if the failure is too high or too low
Test can be performed during normal use at the workstation: Improved productivity, workers can test without having to leave the workstation
