GLOSSARY: One Hundred Megohms

OHMs meterOne Hundred Megohms, or “One Hundred Meg,” equals one hundred million ohms or 1.0 x 10E8. The exponent 8 refers to the eight zeros after the 1. Staticworx recommends an electrical resistance measurement of 1 x 10E8 as the maximum upper level for an ESD flooring specification.

Note: Many ESD flooring manufacturers recommend electrical resistance measurements as high as 1.0 x 10E9 (1 Billion ohms or One Thousand Meg).

StaticWorx believes that resistance measurements higher than 1.0 x 10E8 gives the flooring material too narrow a margin of error, and that the 900-million-ohm gap between 100 million and 1 billion ohms is too large a jump in electrical resistance. If a material has a resistance of 1.0 x 10E8, or 100,000,000 ohms, environmental changes and other mitigating factors should have little or no effect on the floor’s electrical performance. If a material has a resistance of 1 x 10E9 when it’s installed and low RH reduces conductivity or its resistance deteriorates over time, the floor may no longer provide adequate ESD protection.
