Iron Man™ Plus Workstation Monitor

Protect your circuit boards from electrostatic discharge (ESD) and electrical overstress (EOS)

The SCS Iron Man™ Plus Workstation Monitor provides full coverage to an ESD protective workstation and meets ANSI/ESD S20.20 in accordance with ESD TR12-01. Like most ESD monitors, it continuously monitors the resistance of an operator and worksurface mat. However, the Iron Man™ Plus also monitors operator body voltage and detects Electrical Overstress, or EOS, on a circuit board. The Iron Man™ Plus is a dual wire continuous monitor, and it is intended to be used with dual wire wrist straps.

Key Advantages

  • Electrical Overstress (EOS) detection
  • Operator body voltage monitoring
  • Quick response time
  • Low operator test voltage (0.40V)
  • Miniature size (0.85” H x 2.4” W x 2.6” L)
The Iron Man™ Plus Workstation Monitor will alarm if overvoltage from a tool such as a soldering iron or electric screwdriver is applied to the circuit board’s ground plane. The overvoltage alarm threshold can be adjusted from 0 to ±5V.

For use in facilities where ESD sensitive items are handled, such as electronics assembly, semiconductor, repair, service, medical, military and aerospace.
