Detect ESD Events in your Process
The PED-718 is a portable indicator that will help you quickly detect ESD events in your process. If you’re handling ESD sensitive devices, use the PED-718 to detect and count discharges as well as showing you the relative strength of each ESD event.
Fully Adjustable Alarm
Settings give the user the ability to adjust the alarm threshold to detect and count only those discharges that exceed the threshold. The LED’s will turn red if the discharge exceeds the threshold. There is a sound switch that can also be used to detect ESD events that exceed the threshold.
Evaluate the Effectiveness of your ESD Program
To confirm that your ESD protection is effective is to know whether you have ESD events in your environment, how strong they are and how many of them occur. The PED-718 is the right tool to show you the effectiveness of your ESD program.
The PED-718 is capable of rejecting most non-ESD related EMI events by using a filter that separates and rejects signals that are different from classic ESD events.
A Valuable Add-On to your ESD Kit
Installing and maintaining an effective ESD program requires a wide range of measuring equipment. The PED-718 can help determine the source of potentially damaging ESD events and is an important part of every ESD coordinator’s tool kit.

Detection range, sensitivity level and accuracy are not claimed because the PED-718 is an indicator and not a meter. Detection range and sensitivity are relative to the strength of the ESD event. If the ESD event is weak, the PED-718 will not capture it at a great distance because the energy given off by the event will lose its strength by the time it reaches the PED-718’s antenna.
It is generally recommended to point the antenna as close to the targeted object as possible. The closer the antenna is to the source of the ESD event, the better chance it will have at detecting the radiated energy in the air and counting the event. The recommended maximum distance is 1 foot (30 cm).
