Sensor Designed for Monitoring of Electrostatic Charge Build-up
Mon, 10/13/2008 - 12:07pm
This electrostatic voltage sensor (Model 875) is designed for in-line monitoring of electrostatic charge build-up, which if left unchecked, would disrupt manufacturing processes and/or cause product degradation and early life failure of semiconductors and other charge-sensitive components. By using the new sensor, manufacturers of electrostatic-sensitive devices can monitor production lines and other manufacturing processes in real time, thereby enabling process adjustments to be made that will improve production yields and product integrity. Model 875 features a measurement probe with automatic calibration technology that enhances the utility of the sensor by maintaining high accuracy and speed, even as the distance between the non-contacting probe and the monitored surface changes, unlike other measurement technologies which require fixed-probe-to-surface spacing.
