  • The committee adjudicated industry review comments on ESD DSTM11.11, ESD DSTM11.12, and ESD DSTM11.13. The documents will be submitted for publication. The non-ESD test methods in ANSI/ESD S11.4 will be reviewed to ensure all of the referenced methods and values are current and aligned with applicable military standards. The working group also reviewed a summary of box shielding test data collected so far. The group reviewed the status of inclined plane testing, discussed the distribution of cylinders, and requested additional materials. A presentation was given on the inclined plane method based on experimental work to show test method considerations.

  • Summary of meeting activities: 

    The committee reviewed the status of ANSI/ESD STM11.11, ANSI/ESD STM11.12, ANSI/ESD STM11.13, and ANSI/ESD S11.4. ANSI/ESD STM11.13 is currently out for industry review. The other documents will follow. After a committee survey regarding the future of ANSI/ESD S11.4, a decision was made to keep the document but set up a task team to review the test methods and specifications found in other documents to ensure accuracy. The box shielding task team is about halfway through testing program. The triboelectric task team is gathering samples to start round robin testing.

     

  • Summary of meeting activities:

    The committee finished reviewing TAS comments on ESD WIP11.4, ESD WIP11.11, ESD WIP11.12, and ESD WIP11.13. The documents will be submitted for STDCOM VBM following the meeting series. Updates were also given on the test data for box shielding and testing triboelectric properties using inclined planes.

  • Summary of meeting activities:

    The committee finished reviewing TAS comments on ESD WIP11.4. Then the group started reviewing TAS comments on ESD WIP11.11 and ESD WIP11.12. An update was also given on the test data for box shielding.

  • Summary of meeting activities:

    The working group discussed the status of the five-year reviews of ANSI/ESD STM11.11, ANSI/ESD STM 11.12, ANSI/ESD STM 11.13, and ANSI/ESD S11.4. The group reviewed a report of an attenuation study from the US Air Force. The lab still needs some additional volume conductive polymers in various thicknesses and conductive loading levels before the work can be completed. The committee discussed the inclined plane task team status. A test procedure will be circulated to the task team and some assistance is still needed in obtaining quartz, PTFE, and brass rollers. The task team needs to obtain film material samples for round robin testing at six labs. The working group then discussed the status of obtaining box samples for evaluation using ANSI/ESD STM11.31.

  • Summary of meeting activities:

    The committee reviewed task team progress on testing at WPAFB for electric field shielding and getting started with triboelectric study. Reviewed five-year review edits to ESD WIP11.11, ESD WIP11.12, and ESD WIP11.13. Documents expected to go to TAS between meeting series. A discussion was also held on the status of the ANSI/ESD S541 limited ballot currently out for STDCOM review.

  • Summary of meeting activities:

    The committee reviewed an industry comment on a discrepancy between ANSI/ESD S541 and ANSI/ESD S20.20 that resulted in a technical change to the document. It will be distributed for a limited ballot vote between meeting series. ANSI/ESD S11.4 was reviewed and updated during the five-year review cycle. The committee started the five-year reviews of ANSI/ESD 11.11, ANSI/ESD 11.12, and ANSI/ESD 11.13. Editorial changes are expected in each document. The status of task team activity on low charging and electric field shielding concerns were discussed.

  • Summary of meeting activities:

    The working group made minor edits during the five-year review of ANSI/ESD S11.4 so the document will be sent to TAS with a recommendation to reaffirm. An update was given by the e-field shielding task team which is proceeding with testing once samples are obtained. An update was also given by the low charging task team which is considering refining the inclined plane method and developing a standard practice.

  • Summary of meeting activities:

    The committee adjudicated industry comments on ESD DSTM11.31 and continued the five-year review of ANSI/ESD S11.4. A presentation was also given on considerations for applying ESD DSTM11.31 to cardboard boxes.

  • Summary of meeting activities:

    The committee reviewed the current status of documents currently under development including the publication of ANSI/ESD STM11.13 and ANSI/ESD S541. Discussions were held on additional updates needed in ANSI/ESD S541 including low charging and electric field shielding. The five-year review cycle for ANSI/ESD S11.4 was also started.

  • Summary of meeting activities:

    The committee reviewed and adjudicated industry review comments on ESD DS541 and ESD DSTM11.13. The documents will be submitted for publication. The group also reviewed and adjudicated consensus body comments on ESD WIP11.31. The document will be submitted for industry review. The committee also discussed the start of the five-year review for ANSI/ESD S11.4 and will review the document at the June virtual meeting.

  • Summary of meeting activities:

    The working group adjudicated all of the standards committee vote comments on ESD WIP541, ESD WIP11.31, and ESD WIP11.13LB. All three documents will move forward for industry review. There was a discussion regarding the five-year review of ANSI/ESD S11.4. The WG will continue discussions at the April face-to-face meeting; the expectation is the document will be recommended for reaffirmation. A discussion was also held on the possible revision of ESD ADV11.2. Suggestions include re-designating the document as a technical report and adding any new methods or procedures related to triboelectric testing since 1995.
