Using Tech Wear X2 Garments with 3M’s 724 Workstation Monitor

by Andy on January 6, 2011

Tech Wear’s X2 garments are designed to work in conjunction with 3M’s 724 Workstation Monitor. This popular 3M workstation monitor provides immediate notification when a wrist strap malfunctions or when it is being worn improperly. Before the invention of Tech Wear’s X2 garments in 1998, the only way to track an operator’s charge imbalances was with a dual-snap wrist strap that measures surface resistivity on the skin.

However, when used with 3M’s 724 Workstation Monitor, Tech Wear’s X2 garment design includes both the wearer and garment in the monitored loop. The X2 jacket or coat makes contact with the operator at the two wrist cuffs (one cuff is connected to the garment’s fabric and the other cuff is connected to the monitor snap by an isolated conductive path). You can see the path of the electrical circuit in the image to the left.

All-Spec carries Tech Wear’s X2 jackets and coats in several colors with sizes ranging from X-Small to 5XL. From now until March 31, 2011, stock up on Tech Wear garment items at reduced sale prices.
