This generator is targeted for use in pre-compliance testing used during product development, as well as, quality assurance testing or manufacturing troubleshooting.
Although the Model 1000 is not intended to be used as a test apparatus for EN 61000-4-2/IEC 61000-4-2 Qualification, it is designed for a quick and simple assessment of ESD susceptibility and ESD trouble-shooting at a very affordable price.
Currently ESD generators employed for EN 61000-4-2 testing range from $3400 to $8000. Although these tools are designed to meet all the specified discharge parameters for ESD testing, they are cumbersome and overkill for simple ESD troubleshooting..
