Sometimes question comes how to measure ESD . It can be measured through Voltmeter and it can measure electrostatic voltage upto 30,000V. This meter will also identify postive and negative charges . There can be different ways to avoid or reduce this ESD.

1. Keeping synthetic material 4inch away from electronic devices.

2.Using static floor mats where necessary

3.Treat carpets and floors with compounds that drop down static charges .

And many more .

ESD floor mat can prevent electronic devices from being damaged by any electrostatic charge.

There are different sources of static electricity :

1. Waxed floors , vinyle tile on surfaces and so on .

2. Finished wood chairs, vinyle  and fibre glass.

3.Synthetic clothes, nylon etc

4.Common plastic bags, trays and so on

If we walk on carpeted floor in a heated room the shock we experience when we touch door knob is static electricity .

The use of ZNE technology buildings not only reduces cost and creates renewable energy, but it can give a boost to the economy. The implementation and execution will require a workforce, which means the result can be increased employment.
The use of CFD is more profound in automobile design because of the diverse physics involved. It can be used to optimize components for downsizing and reducing the environmental footprint while maintaining or improving operational efficiency.
A Detroit automaker was struggling with a semi-manual, labor-intensive parts receiving process. Workers had enter parts into a spreadsheet manually at a stationary workstation. This stopped the receiving process dead in its tracks. A better system was needed.
Pressure sensors can be used in a wide range of applications. It’s imperative that they’re suited for use in hazardous situations and are fully compliant with one of several protection standards.
