|Publication Date:||1 September 2020|
This document provides measurement techniques, under specified conditions, to determine offset voltage and discharge time for ionizers for qualification and periodic verification tests in production locations.
This document does not include electromagnetic interference (EMI) measurements or uses of ionizers in connection with ammunition, flammables, explosive items, or electrically initiated explosive devices.
This document describes ionization qualification and periodic verification test methods for types of ionizers and room ionization alternatives, which are not delineated in ANSI/ESD STM3.1 or ANSI/ESD SP3.3.
