46.00 WRIST STRAP AND GROUND TESTER - MODEL : WST - 01
Wrist Straps are the first line of defense against Electrostatic Charge build up on the human body. They are designed to carry away this charge as soon as it is generated. At the same time the strap must remain electrically safe the user. Thus, it is important to test every wrist strap regularly. In order to protect sensitive Electronic components the maximum strap resistance should not be more than 10 meg ohms on the other hand and the path ground should have atleast 1 meg ohm resistance as protection to the wearer from dangerous levels of current flow. The Wrist Strap and ground tester checks these parameters under actual operating with the strap on the wrist. It clearly indicates whether or not the resistance of the strap system including the wearer is atleast 800 k ohms and not more than 10 meg ohm. The instrument is provided with a low battery indication, which comes on when the battery voltage drops 7 volts.
OPERATIONS The operation of the instrument is very simple. It comes on automatically when using the banana plug into the socket or by connecting the wrist strap to the instrument and then pressing gently on the metal plate presses the metal plate. The operator can check whether the resistance of the wrist strap systems falls within the acceptable range in which case the green light (PASS) cornes ON.
