ESD Electrostatic Discharge pre-compliance test setup

The most important components of this test setup are an ESD simulator system including ESD guns, an isolation transformer, vertical and horizontal coupling planes and a wooden table. Also, a reference potential plane should be available on the floor surface of the laboratory which is connected to the EUT. In this test, there should be at least 1 mm spacing between the EUT and all metallic components of the setup. The overall aim of this setup is conducting EMC testing according to IEC 61000-4-2 standard.

Application

This test setup could be applicable at both device and system level at different classes according to EUT sensitivity and specifications. The main simulator generates multiple discharge current waveforms in accordance with the requirements of the standard. This test setup dramatically helps increasing time to market of the products and avoids imposing costly delays to the production line of the systems.
