      Glow in the dark tools? Are you for real?


      Exclusively designed for electricians working in low light conditions when isolating electrical supplies, the C.K dextro GLO VDE range is available in a six piece set of slotted and Pozidrive screwdrivers. They feature a unique phosphorescent handle that gives off a strong, highly visible glow when working in dark or low light conditions.
      By exposing the screwdriver to natural light, the phosphorescent material handle will charge enough to provide 20 minutes glow. Exposure to stronger, artificial lights, such as a site lamp or head torch, will provide up to 30 minutes glow, making it easier than ever to find tools in the dark.
      The dextro GLO VDE screwdrivers also feature an ergonomically shaped dual component handle injection moulded directly to the blade, giving the ultimate bond for increased reliability and durability. Ridges along the head also give extra power in the last quarter turn.
      VDE approved to offer electricians maximum safety, the C.K dextro GLO VDE range also features an improved tip capable of withstanding over 20Nm of torque.

        Bzzzzzz zap I can feel some static!


        StaticESDStatic
        static electricity
        noun
        1. a stationary electric charge, typically produced by friction, that causes sparks or crackling or the attraction of dust or hair.
         
        (Scientists believe that it is not the rubbing or friction that causes electrons to move. It is simply the contact between two different materials. Rubbing just increases the contact area between them.) Static electricity is the imbalance of. positive and negative charges.

        Walking across a rug can produce a static electricity voltage of up to 12,000 volts, but static voltage is not life threatening. So it is possible to damage a hard drive with static electricity that is not even felt by the person because it is at such a low voltage. Also, computers become increasingly susceptible to static electricity damage as more and more circuitry is built into them.
        The main components affected by these devious charges are semiconductors. This is because they incorporate various delicate components, and when a negative charge is discharged onto it by virtue of static, it causes failures, as there is no conductor that can dissipate, hence causing damage.
        Semiconductors, include diodes, microchips, transistors, etc.
        Static electricity, causes damage to sensitive electronic components, so if one brings it near electronics, there will be failure.

        So how can we address this?

        ESD Protection

        The electronic industry has placed a growing emphasis on reliability and quality assurance. ESD damage toElectrostatic Discharge Sensitive Devices (ESDS)  can be minimized by using ESD control measures.

        • Handle electrostatic discharge sensitive devices (ESDS) only in an ESD protected area (EPA)
        • Avoid electrostatic potential differences and electrostatic discharges
        • Use wrist straps, approved footwear and floor combination for personnel grounding
        • Wear properly fastened dissipative garments
        • Avoid electrostatic generating materials (normal PE, PVC, PS, etc.) inside an EPA
        • Do not expose ESDS to electrostatic fields > 100V / cm (10 kV/m) !
        • Use only approved ESD protective packaging materials
        • Awareness, personnel training, continuous monitoring are essential for maintaining a static control program

        We can offer the following solutions to you:
        1. A wide range of ESD Products.
        2. ESD Training for your staff
        3. ESD measurements and assessing your ESD requirements on site
