I have some tools for anti-static purposes for repairing a computer: an anti-static wrist strap, an anti-static mat, a grounding plug on which only the earth pin is metal (the hot and neutral are plastic), and a travel adaptor to connect the grounding plug to the powerboard (because the only available plugs on the market are for US sockets).
The environment is an apartment in a complex building.
The grounding plug is to be plugged into a multi-socket powerboard (with surge protection) via the travel adaptor. The anti-static mat and wrist strap are to be connected to the grounding plug. I then put my laptop on the mat and wear the wrist strap.
Because I’m a noob when it comes to electrics, can someone evaluate the danger in this setup in situations such as:
- Ground faults of other people’s appliances in other apartments in the building
- Power surge in other apartments in the building
- Power outage, and restoration
- Issues with phone/tablet adaptors plugged into the same powerboard
- Ground faults of appliances in my apartment which are plugged into other outlets
Lastly, what is the standard setup in, for instance, a computer repair shop on the street? Is this anything like theirs and is this setup generally safe in terms of not exposing humans to 230 V?
