A complete experiential classroom learning solution for schools to make visualization easier for complex theoretical concepts.
Materials that easily transfer electrons (or charge) between atoms are called conductors and are said to have “free” electrons. Some examples of conductors are metals, carbon, and the human body’s sweat layer. Materials that do not easily transfer electrons are called insulators. Some well-known insulators are common plastics, glass, and air. Both conductors and insulators may become “charged” with static electricity. When a conductor is charged, the free electrons give it the ability to discharge rapidly when it comes close to another conductor with a different potential.
So, we need ESD safety tools to know whether a insulator or a conductor is charged, so we necessary steps to prevent ourselves from getting electrocuted.
Esd Safety for Schools
We have all seen electrostatic discharge in the form of lightning or perhaps felt the zap when reaching for a door knob. Similar types of electrical charges can have an effect on the electronic components you handle every day in your work. Unfortunately, their effect is much more hazardous and not as readily apparent.
We here at IHC has come up with an innovative ESD Safety program that will help schools to blend with school’s existing curriculum and encourages teachers to give a demonstration in their regular classroom sessions about the interesting concepts of ESD learning with the help of ESD Safety tools.
What ESD Safety Lab Consists of?
IHC provides you with professional grade tools manufactured in Germany with the protection of Electro Static Discharge handles and casing. IHC has a variety of ESD safe tools including ESD Tweezers,ESD Pliers, and ESD Screwdrivers that have handles that are electrostatically dissipative. ESD Tools disperse the electrostatic charge into the handle ensuring that sensitive electronic components remain safe and uninterrupted by static discharge. Learn more about the basic concepts in Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)
For Teachers, the innovation lab provides teaching aid, a dedicated mobile app, a teacher’s training program, etc.
For Students, the innovation lab provides practice sheets, Science DIY kit, assessment, and 13x 7 support and guidance
Why ESD Safety lab is a Good Choice for you?
Static damage to components can take the form of upset failures or catastrophic failures.
Upset failures – result in gate leakage
Catastrophic failures – occur in two forms, Direct and Latent
Direct catastrophic failures occur when a component is damaged to the point where it is DEAD NOW and it will never again function. This is the easiest type of ESD damage to find since it usually can be detected during testing.
An upset failure occurs when an electrostatic discharge has caused a current flow that is not significant enough to cause total failure, but in use may intermittently result in gate leakage causing loss of software or incorrect storage of information.
Upset or latent failures may harm students and teachers. In other words, static damage may occur that cannot be felt, seen, or detected through normal testing procedures and might damage the electrical components and might sometimes cause harm to human beings.
How Does ESD Safety Lab Work?
Manufacturing of PCB of PCB Assembly any manufacturing unit should be done in an ESD-Safe and Cleanroom Environment.
When repairing PCB or electronic equipment, always wear a grounded anti-static wrist strap to ground the worker.
Lay ESD-safe mat on table or work bench and ground it.
Remove all static producing materials from the area.
Use Anti-Static tools and equipment.
Use ionizers (static eliminator) for ionization (charge mitigating) to neutralize the charge where grounding is not possible.
Use antistatic bags for packaging PCB when transporting or storage.
How to Set Up a ESD Safety Lab at School?
