The electrostatic discharge consists of release of static electricity when two bodies with different electrostatic potentials , place near or come into contact each other.

Electrostatic discharges have to be necessarily keep under control in order to prevent shock to personnel, problems to electronic components and create possible ignition sources for fires or explosion.

As a problem solution of electrostatic discharges, it  is necessary to avoid that bodies charge and/or protect devices with specific structures.

Istituto Giordano can do laboratory tests and offer services in site in order to demonstrate that products/systems are adequately protected by electrostatic discharges.
