Computer disk drives, solid-state drives, flash drives, etc., are all 
ESD sensitive.  ESD precautions should be taken whenever they are 
handled, regardless of mounting.

arc-fault circuit interrupters will not mitigate electrostatic discharge:




Do you have some other kind of circuit breaker in mind?
