Luxo's ESD-Safe Magnifiers are designed for inspection
and assembly applications in static-sensitive environments where
electrostatic discharges can prove fatal for electronic components.
What sets Luxo ESD-Safe Magnifiers apart?
Magnifier lenses are Anti-Reflective and protected with a special
coating that alters the electrical characteristics at the surface of the
material and guards again uncontrolled static dissipation.
- To the shade and arm, Luxo applies a metal-laced paint that measures 104Ω/sq. (conductive).
- The remaining components of the WAVE LED ESD are molded in a material that measures 105 - 106Ω/sq. (static dissipative) and the remaining components of the KFM LED ESD measure 104Ω/sq. (static dissipative). Since the surfaces are no longer insulative, triboelectric charging results in drastically lower voltages, especially since any charge (under 50V) is uniformly distributed throughout the entire surface of the head assembly.
