ESD wrist straps are a critical component of ESD protection in electronic manufacturing and repair environments. These devices provide a controlled pathway for static electricity to safely discharge from the worker’s body to ground, preventing ESD damage to sensitive electronic components.

ESD wrist straps are typically made of conductive materials, such as metal or carbon, and consist of an adjustable band worn around the wrist, which is connected to a cord or cable that is grounded. The wrist strap provides a low resistance path to ground for static electricity to flow, reducing the risk of ESD events occurring during assembly or repair operations.

ESD wrist straps are available in a range of styles and sizes to accommodate different wrist sizes and shapes. They are easy to use and can be worn by personnel throughout the workday. Regular maintenance and testing of ESD wrist straps is essential to ensure they remain effective in preventing ESD damage.
