Double Up: Dual-Wire Technology

by Michelle S. on October 25, 2013

Wondering which personal grounding solution is right for your static-sensitive environment? An ESD wrist strap delivers essential protection against damage to your valuable components – but not all wrist strap technologies were created equal.    

While both single-wire and dual-wire wrist bands provide a grounding path via a coiled retractable cable, repetitious movement and wear will cause eventual damage. Dual-wire technology delivers redundancy and added protection by incorporating two connections to ground via a single coil. So, if one dual-wire wrist strap conductor is severed, the operator will maintain reliable path-to-ground with the other wire.

When it comes to ESD protection, sometimes two is better than one. We carry a full range of dual-wire wrist straps to accommodate virtually any price range.  Shop now to discover the perfect option for your workspace.
