ESD measurements (practical)

ESD measurements in practice, according to IEC 61340 (recommended advanced training for ESD coordinator)

ESD prevention measures have become a real “must” for everyone who comes in contact with electronics and electronic products. Each company has different processes, and thus will require a different combination of ESD prevention measures for an optimal ESD control program.
Very important is that the ESD prevention measures are regularly checked for their operation. In addition to daily measurements carrying out by employees themselves, such as testing the wristbands, ESD shoes, Heel Strips etc., there are also some other things that need to be checked periodically for example, the ESD floor, ESD Chairs, ESD packaging materials (incoming inspection or packaging of which the date has been expired!), ESD clothes etc.
During the training ESD measurements in practice, we go deeper into these topics.

This training includes the practical part (measuring ESD prevention measures) which among other things an ESD coordinator needs to carry out an audit.

During training ESD measurements in practice, we use the following equipment:

  • METRISO® 2000 (Digital resistance meter)
  • Temp and humidity meter METRISO® 2000
  • 2 Probes Model 850 according to IEC 61340-4-1 and IEC 61340-2-3
  • 1 Handheld probe model 45 according to IEC 61340-4-5
  • Resistance ring probe set model 880 in accordance with IEC 61340-2-3
  • Clamping Measuring Probes for measuring ESD clothing according to IEC 61340-4-9

All measurements are made and are based according to the following guidelines IEC: 61340-2-3, 61340-4-1, 61340-4-5 and IEC 61340-4-9.

Who should attend to the ESD training?

This training is meant for everyone who is involved in the implementation and maintaining ESD audits and / or measurements of ESD prevention measures such as:

  • Technical managers
  • (Prospective) ESD Coordinators
  • Everyone carries out measurements on ESD prevention measures


Certification: 1 Day exclusive exam (option)

Recertification: 0,5 day exclusive exam (option)
