This wrist strap prevents electrostatic discharge to whatever you touch
What you need:
- 1 meg ohm resistor(any wattage or tolerance will do
- Copper tape or foil
- a piece of wire(you can use all of the wires from a btoken cord if you like0
- bracelet(This should allow the copper tape to stick)
- one alligator clip
Step 1 cover the whole bracelet with copper tape
Step 2 solder a piece of wire to the copper tape. Do not solder the resistor to the tape. By doing that the connection will be bridal and break off.
Step 3 take the resistor and solder it to the wire which connects to bracelet
Step 4 solder another wire to the resistor to the ground clip, again don’t solder the resistor directly to the ground clip, it could break off.
Step 5 measure the meter in a range that is in greater than 1 meg ohm to see if it measures 1 meg ohm. If it does than your all done
