A complete data logging ESD test station for ESD heel straps/footwear and wrist straps.

The PGT120.COM ESD grounding tester takes quick and accurate resistance measurements of ESD wrist straps, ESD footwear, heel grounders and smocks and stores test data on a computer. Data logging ESD test information in a computer database eliminates a paper log, where the operators must hand write ESD test information and you must relie on the honor system for compliance. The unit operates with 3 independent measuring circuits which allows the wrist straps and heel grounders be to tested individually and simultaneously. The PGT120.COM can be connected to an automatic door opening system which allows entry with only passing results.

Data Acquisition

Having access to this information digitally is extremely valuable to your quality program. Manipulate the data with the easy to use SQLlite, a open source data base management program that is one of the most widely deployed database engines in the world or export the data to excel.  Learn information like if the technician passed or failed, how often they had to retest, how long your ground products actually last and much more. Our system is perfect for a team of just a few technicians or a large team of up to 50,000 people.  Multiple ESD testers can be installed throughout your facility and test information is logged into one database. The software used to collect and log information requires does not require an annual license fee and can work with up to 32 testers.

A modular system

The PGT120.COM testing system consists of individual components that can be swapped or upgraded at any time which means the system can grow with your company. Not ready for data logging today but would like to in the future?  The PGT120.COM is a fully functioning ESD tester that can be upgraded to data logging at any time. There are several options for Human Input Devices (HIDs) (that allow for employees to input their IDs) and the system works with most USB devices so existing HIDs can be used or changed if your company’s systems change.  A keypad is used to input employee IDs for simple programs, or use bar code scanners, card swipes or RFID readers for more complex programs.  There are multiple accessories such as a light signal, test badge printer, floor mats as well as a Touch Screen Computer. The computer, the TC18, creates a beautiful ESD testing kiosk that is perfect for lobbies or main entrances to show your commitment to quality control and ESD protection. The TC18 has a Linux-base operating system that displays test results, give pass/fail indications and plays company videos.

Hands Free Test Mode
ESD footwear such as heel grounders or ESD shoes can  be measured in a hands free mode which means that the staff members are tested automatically when standing on the plate – No Button Press Needed!

100volt Test Circuit
The PGT120 uses a 100volt test circuit (by default) which is the same voltage used for qualification tests. Using 100 volts allows the PGT120 to test all materials consistently, reduces false failures and ensures comliance to ANSI ESD S.2020. Test voltage is also selectable. DIP switches on the PGT120 can adjust the voltage to either 30V or 50V.

The PGT120.COM is supplied complete with footwear testing electrode, flexible cord, transformer with power cord and calibration protocol. Recommended calibration interval is 24 month Corresponding wall mounting plate, and electrode anti-fatigue mat is sold separately.

USB Connected Accessories

Pair the unit with the PGT120.COM Data Terminal and you receive real-time ESD testing with personnel identification, access control and central data maintenance. Also connect to a number of accessories such as a label printer, bar code scanner, RFID, database server and much more.

  • Ready to integrate into existing infrastructure
  • Multiple PGT120.COM stations can be networked
  • Existing identity cards or time attendance cards can be re-used
  • Open database interface
  • Measurement data is ready to process after a few seconds

PGT120 With Turnstile

Data Logging: Data Terminal Options

The PGT120 ESD Tester must be paired with a Data Terminal to log test results. Test data is recorded and accessories are connected to the PGT120.COM tester with a Data Terminal. Three versions of the data terminal is available for your unique application:

Data Terminal2 - Standard Model

The PGT120 Data Terminal 2 is the base system that is ready to integrate into existing HID infra-structure. Systems can be con-nected via USB and an open da-tabase interface is used. Model number: 7100.PGT120.COM.DT.

Data Terminal DT3

Data Terminal3 - RFID Model

The PGT120 Data Terminal 3+ is equipped with a built-in RFID Reader for employee identifica-tion. Also includes a display, a relay to open doors/barriers, 4 USB ports. Model number: 7100.PGT120.COM.DT3.

PGT120COM TC18 Touch Screen

Data Terminal TC18 - Touch Screen Computer Model

The PGT120 Data Terminal TC18 is a 10” touch screen MiniPC that can display test results as well as store data. Includes 4 USB ports, LAN-Port RJ45 and RS232 ports. The housing is durable aluminum with front panel mounting.  Model number: 7100.PGT120.COM.DT3.

PGT120 ESD Tester Installation Options

The PGT120 ESD Tester can be installed in your facility in several ways:

Wall Mounted

To save valuable space, the PGT120 can be mounted to the wall.  The wall mounting plates is model number: 7100.PGT120.WK.
