Connect Common Point Ground to Mat

The top anti static side of the mat collects static off of equipment and tools laid on top of it at a static dissipative rate, (1 x 106 to 9 x 108 ohms / square).

The bottom of the mat then conducts static to ground at a conductive rate, (1 x 103 to 9 x 104 ohms / square).

It’s recommended you have grounding cables attached for every 5 feet of mat. They should not be “daisy-chained” together. Instead, directly connect the grounding cables to the electrical outlet.

ESD Grounding Method for a Common Point Ground

Electrical outlets typically are the best path to ground the mat in any building because they follow the piping to the Earth’s electrical field underneath the building.

When connected to the electrical outlet, the mat is in electrical balance with the positive and negative charges of the building you are using it in.

ANSI / ESD S4.1 Test Data

The border line between conductive and static dissipative is 1 million ohms per square. This is also referred to as 1 meg ohm or 1 x 106 ohms / square.

ESD Resistance Chart for 5300 Series Anti Static Mats

To satisfy the ANSI / ESD S4.1 Worksurfaces – Resistance Measurements test standard the top static dissipative part of the mat was measured using resistance-to-groundable point and resistance point-to-point tests.

ANSI / ESD S4.1 guidelines at section 8.0 recommend resistance-to-groundable point (RTG) tests should find the top surface of grounded mats measure between 1 x 106 and 1 x 109 ohms / square.

Resistance point-to-point (also known as top-to-top or RTT) tests should measure the ESD resistance of the top surface of the mats at greater than or equal to 1 x 106 ohms / square.

As viewable in our diagrams, all 5300 Series mat samples were recorded within the acceptable range between 1 x 106 and 1 x 109 ohms / square, regardless of humidity, to meet the current S4.1 standard.

In our low relative humidity test, the sample with the least resistance measured 1.2 x 107 ohms / square.

The mat sample with the highest resistance measured 3.9 x 107 ohms / square.

In our moderate relative humidity test, the sample with the least resistance measured 1.0 x 107 ohms / square.

The mat sample with the highest resistance measured 9.8 x 107 ohms / square.
