Additional Information [Hide]

Anytime anyone, including guests, are near your sensitive, expensive, electronics, you need them to be static aware and static safe. However, that doesn’t mean that they need a production quality static wrist band. The Limited Life Static Wrist band is a low cost disposable static wrist band that is perfect for handing out to guests, or anyone, who will be working around your electronics for a short period of time.

An anti-static wrist band (properly grounded) should be worn at all times when handling exposed electronics circuitry and components. By wearing this strap, any static charge built-up on the wearer will be dissipated to ground (through a protective 1 Meg Ohm resistor). This ensures that the wearer will be at ground potential and no damage can occur to the electronics.

For optimum protection, a wrist strap should be used in conjunction with a properly grounded anti-static mat .

Features Include:

  • An economical solution for those who need occasional use of an anti-static wrist strap.
  • Ideal for field service technicians, computer repair, hobby use, etc.
  • Velcro strap. One size fits all. 36" cord with alligator clip.
  • Integrated 1 Meg Ohm resistor for protection of user.


A static factoid

Did you know that when you feel that tell-tale "ZAP" of static discharge, that your body is discharging over 2,000 volts? Below this voltage, a discharge still occurs, but it is not normally felt by most people. Of course when dealing with low-voltage electronics, even 50 volts is enough to cause permanent damage so you should always ground yourself with a wrist strap. Remember: just because you don't feel the 'zap' doesn't mean you weren't charged to dangerous levels.
