Question We want to test our floor but do not know the test range it should be in to pass. Can you give me some guide lines for testing our flooring? - Anonymous, Clear Lake, WI
Answer The ESD Association’s standard ESD-DS20.20, (Protection of Electrical and Electronic Parts, Assemblies and Equipment), which references standard ANSI/ESD-S7.1, (Resistive Characterization of Materials - Floor Materials), recommends that the floor resistance be less than 1x109 ohms when tested with an approved megohmeter at 100 volts and with two 5 lb ESD test probes placed 3 feet apart. Our megohmeter, can test within this range and includes the proper 5 lb probes for testing.
