3M ESD Pro Event Detector ™
3M™ ESD Pro Event Detector
Locate and identify ESD events in your process
The ultimate goal of an ESD program is to reduce the strength and occurrences
of ESD events, or electrostatic discharges. ESD events can destroy sensitive
components during their manufacturing, handling and assembly. Knowledge of
the presence of ESD events and their relative strength is critical for assessment of
the ESD environment and for determining whether the production environment is
suitable for handling ESD-sensitive devices. The only way to verify that your ESD
protection works is by knowing whether you have ESD events in the environment,
how strong they are and how many of them occur. The portable, easy-to-use 3M
ESD Pro Event Detector serves as a quick measure of the effectiveness of your ESD
The ESD Pro is a hand-held indicator of ESD events that detects and counts the

discharges as well as shows the relative strength of each ESD event. The ESD Pro
offers variable settings of the discharge alarm threshold to detect and count only
those discharges that exceed the threshold. The ESD Pro provides an audio alarm
on each discharge and an LED bar-graph to show the relative strength of the ESD
events. If the discharge exceeds the set alarm level, the LEDs turn red.
Often, devices such as relays,
solenoids, stepper motors, and others
generate signals similar to those of
The ESD Pro is capable of rejecting most non-ESD related EMI (electromagnetic
ESD events. In order to separate
interference) events. This special proprietary charge device model (CDM) mode
genuine ESD events from those
allows assessment of the ESD environment in places where EMI events resulting
caused by equipment operation,
from stepper motors, solenoids, relays and sources abound.
ESD Pro uses patent-pending signal
processing to differentiate signal
Applications for the ESD Pro include electronics assembly, semiconductor device
waveforms with the focus on CDM-
manufacturing, disk drive manufacturing, medical environments and military
type events that are most critical in
electronics manufacturing.
ESD Event Detection
ESD Pro provides detection of electrostatic discharges
(ESD events) that are harmful for sensitive components.
Adjustable Alarm Threshold
Easy-to-set alarm threshold helps to set a level below which ESD
Pro rejects events as insignificant for a particular application.
ESD Event Count
ESD Pro has a four-digit counter to provide a count of discharges
above the set threshold.
Rejection of Non-ESD Events
Proprietary waveform analysis algorithm in its CDM mode rejects
most non-ESD EMI events to provide accurate detection of
legitimate discharges in noisy environments.
A small hand-held instrument that can be carried and used
anywhere for quick assessment of ESD environments. ESD Pro
belongs in the toolbox of every engineer and technician who is
concerned with ESD damage to their parts.

Where to Use the 3M™ ESD Pro?
ESD Pro is a versatile instrument with several important applications, among which are:
• ESD Diagnostics and Troubleshooting
Whenever an ESD issue comes up, ESD Pro is your best tool to identify the location of the problem occurrence. Find the
specific steps in your process that cause ESD events, and the relative strength of an ESD event at each step. It also can be used
to verify whether the problem still remains or it has been corrected.
• Evaluation of ESD-protective Equipment
Does your ionizer really improve your ESD situation in a particular location? Simply run your process with your ionizer on
and then off and ESD Pro will show you whether this ionizer makes a difference in your process. With ESD Pro you will be
able to select and to install your ESD protective measures with the maximum efficiency.
• Tool Qualification
Can you process your sensitive components on a particular tool? Find it out with ESD Pro before damaging your devices.
• Next Step
For more advanced ESD diagnostics and qualification, use 3M™ EM Aware ESD Monitors that can provide you with the
actual discharge strength values and enable you to have a record of your ESD environment in several locations simultaneously.
