ESD (Electro Static Discharge) packaging of fiber optics can be a challenge because they are fragile, highly valuable, and uniquely shaped. Our latest solution to this uses a permanent ESD plastic material to provide “coiling” of the three foot adjoining cavities for the connectors on the ends. The package uses a die cut piece of conductive memory foam in the shape of a donut to hold the coiled fibers down in the circular cavity.
This assembly is then placed in a Corstat box for ESD Shielding.
The vacuum formed tray and cover were designed, tooled, and formed at CCI and fit within one of our stock boxes, which reduces tooling costs. We have also engraved the customer name and ESD symbol on the tray cover. This is a great solution for a very sensitive, fragile, and expensive item.
