Test & Measurement EQUIPMENT RENTAL & LEASE Solutions

The simulation of electrostatic discharges is an important part of electromagnetic compatibility testing for any type of electronic equipment and is a particularly critical component of EMC test strategies. ESD tests are used to verify complete systems and duplicate disturbances in installations. These tests contribute to identify immunity failures caused by bad cabling or system composition, as well as grounding problems.

Somerset provides ESD simulators from leading manufacturers such as Teseq.

NSG 435 ESD Simulator

IEC 61000-4-2 compliance, up to 16.5 kV

The NSG 435’s microprocessor-based controller and multifunction keypad provide the operator with instant access to its comprehensive range of built-in functions. The LCD panel continuously displays the operating status and all user-selected test parameters. The simulator also includes a discharge pulse counter as well as a counter for long duration tests and remote use.

NSG 437 ESD Simulator

IEC61000-4-2 and ISO10605 compliance, up to 30 kV

The NSG 437 can meet any of today’s automotive manufacturers’ standards. With pulse voltages of up to 30 kV, the NSG 437 supports demanding manufacturers’ R&D test procedures to determine immunity limits.

NSG 438 ESD Simulator

IEC61000-4-2 and ISO10605 compliance, up to 30 kV

The NSG 438 is the flagship ESD simulator optimized for automotive testing. Compared to the NSG 437, the NSG 438 has the added benefit of battery operation, remote control input, and user customizable operating modes.
