Re: Carpet Static Cure

A safety note on static control (ESD) wiring...commercial wrist strap systems have a 1 Megohm resistor in series with the connection to earth ground.

1. A static charge slowly dissipates through the high resistance connection--this limits device damage.
2. Current through the wearer is limited in case of accidental contact with high voltage.

Keep the humidity up to the mid 40%, if you can.
Just misting with a spray bottle isn't enough. A small
living space may require over a gallon/day, if the dew point
is low. If you have a humidifier, but don't know what
your level is, then get a meter to determine where you are;
They're cheap enough -

If you don't want to get into the above, you can make
your own anti-static spray, using fabric softener:

You can also buy products that are made for the purpose:

http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=anti+static+spray



There are even anti-static products added to jet fuel to
keep bad things from happening.



The bottom line is that static electricity can range from a
nuisance to a serious danger, and cutesy answers don't
solve it.

There was an article in one of the magazines a number of

years ago about



installing a new gasfet in a preamp in the bathroom all

steamed up by



running hot water in the shower. That was intended to

eliminate the



static problems and was reported to have worked.
