What is it?

ESD (Electro Static Discharge)

Electrostatic Discharge, a phenomenon that we all know, but which assumes a high importance for work footwear, is caused by a difference of potential expressed in volts.

Specifically, a differential of 3000 volts represents the threshold for human perception.

Much lower values, such as 30 volts, are sufficient to damage a semiconductor (e.g. microchip).

When a person is isolated from the ground, for example wearing rubber shoes, he is charged with static electricity quickly reaching the above values.
