30kV ESD Simulator

Flagship ESD Simulator

Ergonomic design and advanced functionality. The NSG 438 ESD simulator is designed to sit comfortably in the operator’s hand, with operating conditions constantly displayed and accessible on a bright, clear color touch display.

NSG 438 comprehensively fulfills virtually all international standard requirements. Based on over 60 optional discharge networks, the NSG 438 can meet any of today’s automotive manufacturers’ standards.

The simulator is simple, convenient and safe to use. The whole range of parameter settings including polarity selection, freely adjustable pulse repetition, counter functions and discharge detection is available up to the maximum discharge voltage.

The color touch display and keypad for parameter input shows the precise functional and test data with user-selectable language for convenient and safe operation worldwide. The simulator contains variable threshold selection for accurate discharge detection. This detection feature can be switched off when testing EUT’s with non-conductive surfaces, such as plastic housings. Pre-programmed settings for IEC 61000-4-2 and ISO 10605 ensure that the simulator is automatically set up correctly and the appropriate discharge network is installed. The actual RC value is displayed at all times. Molded HV discharge networks in solid cases eliminate ionization and leakage current effects. Precisely tuned combinations of RC components guarantee wave shape parameters to be within tolerances. A unique activity log is included so that the types and numbers of ESD simulations can be easily scrolled through to check what has been tested and in what timeframe.

Calibration target set CTR 2 for waveform verification as per EN/IEC 61000-4-2

The CTR 2 calibration target and its accessories like 20 dB attenuator and coaxial cable forms the set to verify the ESD waveform as requested by the standard EN/IEC 61000-4-2. The 2ohm target is built following the specification of the standard.
By means of the 50ohm adapter line CTR 2-AD the performance of the CTR 2 can be verified using a spectrum analyser.

Accessories to set-up a complete ESD test area

To set-up an ESD test area accessories like vertical coupling plane ( VCP ) ,  grounding set ( EAS 30 ) and even an ESD table with HCP and Ground reference plane are offered.
