Static electricity is more problematic when there is low humidity, no matter what the season. The issue is compounded as electronic devices today are smaller and more susceptible to electrostatic discharge. Granted, most electronics have ESD protection built in; but over time or from a constant barrage of these tiny lightning-like strikes, the protection becomes corrupted, resulting in a failure. Anytime air is warmed, this only reduces the humidity further, increasing the likelihood of a static discharge.
When you get a positive surge out of what you are doing and the business you are in, challenges can be much easier to deal with. Looking back over the years of the dot com boom, the convergence of analog and IP, and the sexiness of video analytics, sometimes businesses based on the basics can grow into something very special as well. We recently caught up with Rich Mitchell, Technical Sales Director at power surge protection equipment company DITEK and chatted about their company’s growth over the past 30 years. Mitchell has been with DITEK for 28 of those years and has seen the company become a very strong player in power protection.
