The use of large-scale integrated circuits – known as ICs – means that electrical appliances are getting smaller and smaller. However, ICs malfunction or fail completely when exposed to electrostatic energy fields. This makes ESD-safe screwdrivers indispensable for such applications. The requirements for ESD-safe screwdrivers are specified in the European standard DIN EN 61340-5-1. This standard also includes a handle that has to be out of a defined conductive material. Wera ESD tools satisfy these standards and the even more stringent requirements demanded by some technology companies.
ESD screwdrivers by Wera are just the right tool, also for your requirements!
