Have you ever wondered if there are instructions for either “how to use” or “where to connect” an anti static wrist strap to ground yourself? In this article I show how to use wrist straps with their grounding cables so that you can properly ground yourself to an electrical outlet.
One of the requirements of an ESD Smock is that it is static dissipative. Since ESD smocks contain carbon, which is conductive, they potentially are isolated floating conductors if they are not grounded. ESD smock testing procedure and grounding methods are reviewed.
