Teknis Launches Megalin Range of Constant Monitoring


Reading time ( words)

Teknis_Megalin.jpgTeknis is pleased to announce their new range of Megalin Constant Monitoring equipment, ensuring complete real-time ESD grounding for personnel, EPA surfaces and tools (e.g. soldering irons) providing enhanced protection for Electro Static Sensitive Devices (ESDS) commonly found within electronics manufacturing and associated repair companies.Megalin have designed a unique market leading range of constant monitors which, when used together with Teknis compatible dual cord wrist strap assemblies, provide instant real time warnings of damaging ESD grounding failures and events.

In many cases, personnel only test their wrist strap assemblies upon entering the Electrostatic Protected Area (EPA) at the beginning of the working day. With the increasing sensitivity of ESDS, Constant Monitoring ensures any breach of ESD grounding is immediately recognized and both operators and management alerted audibly and electronically via a standard network.

Constant Monitoring has been available for around 25 years, but the earlier capacitance based products have always been relatively unreliable. Compared to the standard daily wrist strap testers, and infrequent resistance to ground testing of ESD benches and work surfaces, constant monitors offer the benefits of real-time monitoring, whilst reducing the cost of many hours spent auditing.The Megalin range begins with the CM1600GZ entry-level Constant Monitor which controls 2 EPA’s, 2 operators (with Wrist Straps) and alerts via Audio and LED alarms. The more sophisticated CMGZ1800 can be combined with Megalin’s CMBOSS1800GZ Software, Infrared Operator Presence wrist cord connections, and the GZ1800H Router, enabling up to 128 monitors to be connected allowing resistances to be monitored and adjusted remotely via a traditional network. Email warnings can be set to announce failures or inconsistencies in grounding as they occur.

The Megalin Constant Monitor is available in the UK exclusively from Teknis, who are happy to offer complete demonstrations of the products available.

Investigation on the Assembly Process for m03015 and a Brief Look at m0201 Components

11/14/2018 | David Geiger, Robert Pennings, and Jane Feng, Flex
Components continue to shrink in the SMT world, and the next evolution of passive components includes m03015 (009005) and m0201 (008004). The m03015 and the m0201 components will see primary adoption in products that require further miniaturization, which would be SiPs. These modules would then be assembled into products through attachment, another assembly, or via other interconnect methods. This article explores the development of an assembly process (SMT only) for the m03015 component.
