RE: Static Discharge - An issue to be added to the technical issues list
I am looking for more information regarding the issue of charges accumulated
As I remember Roger has pointed that he measured 750V due to this phenomena.
The information that I need is the following:
1. What will considered to be acceptable circuit model that we can use to
analyze worst case conditions?
1.1 Can we assume that the worst case situation is applying charged
capacitor of TBD nF with TBD voltage and connect it through TBD impedance
between the feeding port and between the feeding port and system
2. Is it applies only to cables from CAT 5E and up?
