Storing Components Properly

Posted by on 12/11/2017 to General

Sometimes, your electronic components will need to be stored with extra care and protection. Some parts will need to be kept at specific temperatures with specific humidity levels or other components may be extremely static-sensitive. How do you ensure you store them safely?

Look into standard plastic compartment storage bins, when you have no concern for static sensitivity. Allow for an appropriate size for your components. You don’t want to stuff something into a box too small for it, nor do you want a fragile part rolling around in a box that is far too large. We offer some storage boxes with removable compartment dividers, this allows for customization of individual compartments ensuring the correct space is allotted to a specific component.

If you are dealing with components that are static sensitive, look into conductive storage. This may include Static Bags, ESD Shelving, Desiccator Cabinets and/or Conductive Part Bins. Place static-sensitive components into a conductive static shielding bag, so that it can be stored safely without worrying about static charges generated by un-controlled environments, which can have a harmful effects on sensitive parts. Larger elements should be placed on conductive shelving when being stored, ensuring each component remains un-effected by the changing static in their surrounding environment.  

If you have any components that might be temperature and humidity sensitive, keep them safely locked away in a Desiccator Cabinet. For example, lithium batteries are notorious for starting fires when brought above a certain temperature or when a component becomes saturated with humidity from the air and cannot perform accurately. In these cases,  a temperature control cabinet that regulates humidity is the solution.

It’s simple to keep your components safe with just a bit of foresight. Contact The Waveroom Plus for all your sensitive component storage needs. We’ve got the right equipment you need to keep your parts safe and secure, no matter what storage parameters you may encounter.
