|ICS Code (Electrical engineering in general):||29.020|
|ICS Code (Other standards related to electricity and magnetism):||17.220.99|
This part of IEC 61340 applies to activities that: manufacture, process, assemble, install, package, label, service, test, inspect, transport or otherwise handle electrical or electronic parts, assemblies and equipment with withstand voltages greater than or equal to 100 V HBM, 200 V CDM and 35 V for isolated conductors. ESDS with lower withstand voltages may require additional control elements or adjusted limits. Processes designed to handle items that have lower ESD withstand voltage(s) can still claim compliance to this standard.
This standard provides the requirements for an ESD control program. IEC TR 61340-5-2 1 provides guidance on the implementation of this standard.
This standard does not apply to electrically initiated explosive devices, flammable liquids, gases and powders.
The purpose of this standard is to provide the administrative and technical requirements for establishing, implementing and maintaining an ESD control program (hereinafter referred to as the "program").
NOTE Isolated conductors were historically represented by MM.
