Protection Against Electrostatic Discharge

Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) is an electrical transient that poses a serious threat to electronic circuits. The most common cause is friction between two dissimilar materials, causing a rise of electric charges on their surfaces. Typically, one of the surfaces is the human body, and it is not uncommon for this static charge to reach a potential as high as 15,000 volts. At 6,000 static volts, an ESD event will be painful to a person. Lower voltage discharges may go unnoticed, but can still cause significant damage to electronic components and circuit.

CODICO offers devices to protect products and systems from ESD event. You can choose between single line, multiple line or ESD devices with integrated common mode choke.
