ESD Guns | ESD Simulators Overview (Electrostatic Discharge Test)


Hi Armando here with Advanced Test Eqiupment Rentals. In today’s video you will learn the importance of an Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) Simulator/Gun and the standards for which these devices test. Electrostatic Discharge Simulators also
known as “ESD guns” play an important role in product development and fulfill pre-compliance and compliance testing for the following standards: ISO 10605, IEC 61000-4-2, Mil-Std-461G CS118 and other Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)
standards. Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) simulators or ESD guns produce a severe high-voltage,
high-current, and high frequency content pulse. When the
pulse is applied to equipment under test, design deficiencies are exposed as
automatic resets, program crashes, or other unusual forms of product
operations, or by the product not meeting specifications. Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)
testing is required to receive a CE mark allowing products to be sold on the
market. There are several different types of ESD Guns | ESD Simulators to choose from including
those that test components according to the charged device model (CDM), human body model (HBM),
or machine model (MM) and system level tests as described in standards such as IEC 61000-4-2 and ISO 10605. The charged device model
simulates situations that may happen in manufacturing environments. The Human Body electrostatic test model (HBM) creates the environment of a human body discharging static electricity, and then monitors how the device under test (DUT) responds. The Machine Model (MM) testing examines how the device under test responds to electrostatic discharge from another nearby device. Engineers and technicians rely on Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) Guns to quickly gain valuable information about the robustness of the equipment under
test to external transient electromagnetic phenomena. Cut
development time by half by identifying product design weaknesses sooner with ATEC’s
ESD Gun and ESD Simulator inventory. Advanced Test Equipment Rentals carries ESD Guns and ESD Simulators from the top manufacturers such as Teseq, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Haefely Hipotronics, and EM Test. Advanced Test Equipment Rentals can also calibrate
your ESD Guns and ESD Simulators. We can provide NIST and ISO 17025 calibration. Our specialized calibration
lab is A2LA ISO 17025 accredited to perform these types of services. To learn
