Prostat CVM-780 Video Tour

May 31st, 2013 No comments

Prostat Corporation’s CVM-780 Contact Voltmeter has combined the ease of using a digital voltmeter and the low input capacitance of a true electrostatic voltmeter.  Being a true voltmeter means that the CVM-780 reads real voltage, it does this without confusing it with electrostatic field strength.

How to Measure Volume Resistance or Volume Resistivity

May 24th, 2013 No comments

We’ve already gone over how to make a surface resistance measurement but how do you make a measurement for volume resistance?  A volume resistance measurement is pretty similar to a surface resistance measurement with the exception of a couple of steps. Read more…

How to Measure Surface Resistance

May 8th, 2013 No comments

Measuring ESD controls in a production process is obviously important to your product’s quality. Why would you take the time to do ESD audits to protect your product throughout production and not your packaging materials? If you’re not quite sure how to measure your packaging materials read on because we’ll help you with making a surface resistance measurement using current industry guidelines! A surface resistance measurement will let you know if your packaging materials are static dissipative, which, is the ideal surface resistance for making direct contact with ESD sensitive devices. All it takes is a few easy steps to make a proper measurement!  What would you be measuring with a surface resistance test? Read more…
