ESD sensitivity of a VFD/LCD module?


I have seen images of people experimenting with these modules but in the datasheets it says that they are sensitive to electrostatic discharge, is there a way of protecting them without cases (to use them for experimenting with micro controllers)  would zener diodes on the inputs and power supply make them less sensitive, or is it a overstressed problem to cover the manufacturer?

....or is it a overstressed problem to cover the manufacturer?

Exactly. If you live somewhere very dry, in winter or summer conditions, static discharges may be an issue.

In the North of England where I live, the air is so damp, we never really have a problem.

Steve didn't mention synthetic fabrics - do you ever get static on your person?
