Data Centers and Network Offices

Shrinking devices and faster processing speeds are making it easier for IT components to be damaged by ESD.

Unprotected IT devices can be damaged at around 250 volts. The next several generations of devices will see vulnerability drop to around 125 volts. Significant risk to the hardware exists even when there is no perceptible ESD present. In fact, damage can occur at ten times below the perceptible limit. At these very low levels, an extensive ESD protocol is required. ESD can be generated by the personnel in the room or the space’s hardware itself.

ASHRAE TC 9.9 provides a guidance on controlling ESD in data centers. The goal is to minimize electrostatic voltage potentials between all items within the area deemed to be ESD sensitive.
