Valstat DP 10 static discharge pads are antistatic touch pads. They have a static dissipative layer that conducts unwanted static charges safely to ground. By only touching the pad for a few seconds, operators and workers are free of electrostatic charge build-up and are thus safe from an electrostatic discharge.
Valstat® Anti-Static Touch Pads
(Anti-static touch pads.)
Static electricity accumulates on the human body, as you walk and move about. Charges can build up to high levels when the relative humidity is low or due to sudden changes in temperature. Another reason a charge build up is a phenomenon called induction. If you are in the vicinity of a material or a process that has or generates high levels of static, you can pick up significant charges. When static charges equivalent to 3000 V or more builds up within you, your body receives a shock when you touch grounded material or another object of lesser potential.
Sparks can at times fly off, which can be potentially hazardous if the atmosphere has gases or liquids or materials having a low explosion level or flash point. Valstat® antistatic touchpads can be placed at strategic locations like desks, walls, partition, filing racks, machines etc. Touching this pad will eliminate uncomfortable shocks to workers, protect your equipment and avoid sparks leading to potentially dangerous situations. By only touching the pad for a few seconds, operators and workers are free of electrostatic charge build-up and are thus safe from an electrostatic discharge.
