Some companies utilize ETS laboratory equipment to measure materials in a non-laboratory environment or in applications for which the system was not designed. If plans are to use Resistance Measuring, Static Decay, Triboelectric Charge Generation or Static Shielding equipment in a dusty, hazardous or production environment, special measures or equipment modifications should be taken to assure the equipment operates optimally.
