ESD energy chains

Energy chains made of conductive ESD material are used to avoid static charge in manufacturing processes for electronic components or assemblies. Measurements of the electrical surface leakage resistance for igus energy chains with the special material igumid GC, were made back in 1992 by igus GmbH together with the PTB (Physikalisch-Technische-Bundesanstalt) in Braunschweig, supplemented by additional certifications in 1998 and 1999 according to DIN 53482, and the guidelines for static electricity ZH1/200 of the Federation of Trade Associations.

ESD test in the igus laboratory

ESD test in the igus laboratory ESD material tested with over 10 million cycles for the toughest requirements

To discharge potentially occurring electrostatic energy, igus recommends the igumid ESD material for the production of sensitive electrical components and for applications in hazardous environments (ATEX).
 
igumid ESD surpasses even the standard material regarding some mechanical requirements  igumid G and has been tested in over 10 million cycles in the igus technical centre.
 
Please note the following: according to a statement by TÜV Rheinland 557/ Ex 125071309.00 / 17, igus energy chains do not fall under the scope of application of Directive 2014/34/EU
