This instrument is designed to measure the Static Voltages carried on a human body. It is a good auditing tool to verify whether Personnel entering an ESD safe area are carrying any hazardous charges on themselves. It can also serve to verify whether all the ESD protection measures which have been taken to make a particular area ESD safe are effective. By such measures, we mean conductive flooring, antistatic table mats, wrist straps, static shielding bags, ionizing equipment, conductive containers, and bins, etc.
It is very simple to use and only requires the person under test to touch the Button on the instrument and directly read the charge level in volts on the meter.s
The Eltech-05 version gives a hazard warning if Voltage measured exceeds 100V.
