Which Single-Wire Monitor is Best for your Application?

Continuous Monitors provide operators with instant feedback on the status and functionality of their wrist strap and/or workstation. They detect split-second failures when the wrist strap is still in the “intermittent” stage. This is prior to a permanent “open” which could result in damage to ESD sensitive components. Continuous Monitors verify the ground integrity of both the operator and ESD workstation and eliminate the need for periodic testing (and record keeping).

Single-Wire Monitoring allows the use of any standard, single-wire wrist strap and coil cord. The monitor / wrist strap system life-cycle costs are significantly lower than dual-wire systems. While they would not be suitable for the most critical applications, Single-Wire Continuous Monitors are an economical way to monitor both the operator’s wrist strap and workstation surface.

The Multi-Mount Monitor continuously monitors:
• One operator wearing a wrist strap
• One ESD worksurface

Its small package and mounting tabs with holes make it highly suitable to install on most equipment or work bench surface.222603


The Jewel® Mini Monitor continuously monitors:
• One operator wearing a wrist strap
• One ESD worksurface

This unit is ideal for individual workstations for assembly, test, packaging or other applications.



The Dual-Operator Monitor continuously monitors:
• Two operators wearing a wrist strap
• Two ESD worksurfaces

This unit is ideal for workstations that are shared by two operators.
