Question What is the highest amount of voltage/current you can use while being grounded? - Anonymous, Dallas , TX,
Answer The safety of the operator always comes first (before any ESD practices). A 1 megohm resistance to ground is satisfactory for a person subjected to less than 250 VAC. Anything higher than 250 VAC requires special design and safety precautions. If in doubt, always favor the safety of the person when working with live power greater than 250 VAC. The DOD-HDBK-263 refers the MIL-STD-454 which states that the maximum current an operator should receive is less than 1 milliamp AC or 4 milliamp DC.
