PGK-820-MK Garment Test Kit

Especially designed to measure the electrical resistance of static control garments

PROSTAT Corporation's new PGK-820-MK Garment Test Kit is designed specifically for measuring the resistance of static control garments per ESD Association Standard ESD STM2.1-1997, Garments. The new kit features PROSTAT's PSI-870 resistance instrument for measuring sleeve to sleeve and point to point resistance. This meter gives simple, repeatable measurements to indicate whether a material is conductive, static dissipative or insulative. The PSI-870 employs parallel bar sensing and features an easy to read LED light scale.

In addition, the kit includes PROSTAT's specially designed PGC-821 Garment Clips, test leads and instructions. Attach them directly to a garment's sleeves or hem for making either evaluation or audit resistance measurements. These unique clips are designed for simple connection to a resistance measurement instrument via banana input receptacles. Clip flanges are insulated to provide electrical isolation when making measurements.
