Energy chains made of conductive ESD material are used to avoid static charge in manufacturing processes for electronic components or assemblies. Measurements of the electrical surface leakage resistance for igus energy chains with the special material igumid GC, were made back in 1992 by igus GmbH together with the PTB (Physikalisch-Technische-Bundesanstalt) in Braunschweig, supplemented by additional certifications in 1998 and 1999 according to DIN 53482, and the guidelines for static electricity ZH1/200 of the Federation of Trade Associations.
