ESD Answers

Perplexed over ESD packaging? Shocked by sparks? Wondering about wrist straps? Stumped over standards? Dr Jeremy Smallwood of Electrostatic Solutions is here to help…

We get emails from all over the world asking about all sorts of electrostatics and ESD issues. All of them are interesting, some difficult, and some downright bizarre! All of them show the care and understanding which is required to prevent ESD damage in electronics manufacture, the ubiquitous nature of static electricity and the strange effects it can produce.

First, check out our on-line ESD Guide, our article Static shocks, and how to avoid them, and the previous ESD Answers to make sure your question isn't already covered.

Then, go ahead and ask your question using the form below*. Or, email us if you prefer.

* We will not pass your details on to any other organisations.

We will try to reply directly by email - and we may publish some of the more interesting ESD Answers here on the web site or in Dr Smallwood's blog!
