• ESD Generator

    The test generator simulates electrostatic discharge as defined in the standard IEC / EN 61000-4-2. Depend on the Equipment Under Test (EUT) and the test set-up for laboratory tests the IEC standard shows two test methods: 
    1. Air discharge At this method the test generator must be moved to the EUT. The discharge of the high voltage is in the air. The test voltage can be varied from upto 30kV. The very short rise time of each single pulse generates a wide RF spectrum and interference. 

    2. Contact discharge The discharge electrode with a sharp point is connected to the EUT. The discharge switch is a vacuum relay
