Question If an operator is wearing a 270K wrist strap, conductive shoes or foot straps and is working in an area with conductive flooring and conductive bench tops, what is the maximum potential the operator could be expected to achieve? - Anonymous, York, PA
Answer The maximum potential that an operator could experience from tribocharging whilst wearing a 270K wrist strap and conductive footwear in conjunction with a conductive floor is still dependent on other variables such as RH and skin resistance/capacitance. Make the following assumptions: the tribocharging rate is 4 milliamps and the equivalent resistance to ground is 1.49 kilohms. Greatly simplifying the process and using the above assumptions then the maximum potential an operator could be expected to achieve from tribocharging is about 6 volts.
