We make suggestions

– for your protection

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) occurs due to a potential difference. This difference, which for instance can be caused by frictional tension, can discharge as an energy pulse with a short but very high electrical current. Frictional tension or other electrostatic charges from the human body can lead to damage and loss of quality to your product i.e. components when touched, generate the human body’s pulse of energy.

To protect your product, yourself and your employees from ESD, we offer an audit in your company in accordance with DIN EN 61340-5-1. The documentation serves as the basis for a global approach as the control medium. We can advise you on this issue and show you how to link these tasks with others. In addition, we can implement seminars tailored to your Company.

Why is this interesting for you?

After a successful completion of the audit you will receive a certificate for your company, confirming a legally compliant ESD organization and safety in accordance with DIN-EN-61340-5-1. This certificate is important, for example, for insurance companies, partner companies and customers.

Can the tasks in ESD area also get solved externally?

We can also assume the ESD safety in your company as an external partner. In many companies, time and manpower are scarce – by overtaking these activities, ITW Schindler GmbH can help you to become a legally compliant ESD organization on the fast track.
