Windows 7: Anti-static component pad

07 Dec 2010   #1

Anti-static component pad

In addition to a server, I use internal sata drives externally as offline backups. I use a front sata panel to attach the drives, as can be seen here:

Akasa Thermal Solution

However, placing them on my desk surface is somewhat precarious, as the surface is hard and provides no ESD protection.

To the question: I'm looking for some sort of mat or pad, aproximately 12"x12" (give or take) that will absorb impact and protect against static electricity. I would think these would be fairly common, but apparently not.

Any ideas?

Found some in England for 10 on AdvanceTec. Guess they're not any good for you if you're not in England, but will give you an idea of what to look for.

Here you go: Cables Unlimited ACC-1420 12-Inch x 21.5-Inch Anti-Static Grounding Pad: Electronics

Not pushing Amazon or Cables Unlimited, but just search for "antistatic mat" and you should find similar - wherever you are!
