Electrostatic test system

Monday, 19 December, 2005 | Supplied by: http://www.contec.com.au/

The DITO Electrostatic Discharge test system from EM Test is designed to generate random electrostatic discharges, similar to those that occur between a human body and any other surface capable of a different voltage potential.

ESD discharges between two different objects can result in significant risk to sensitive control or process electronics that may be connected to or even located within the ESD discharge conduction path.

Such phenomena are evaluated against established EMC compliance test standards specifically intended for ESD risk evaluation, eg, IEC61000-4-2 for industrial products or ITU-TK21 for communications products or ISO10605 for automotive electronics and many others.

DITO is a fully portable system that can generate more than 50,000 pulses at 16.5 kV even when operating in fully portable mode from its internal battery.

The design includes a detachable discharge tip and discharge network as well as a built-in display reporting each operating step and test results, with built-in menus covering common ESD test standards including test routines eg, 'evaluation' which is a special test designed to locate 'points of susceptibility' in particular circuits or layouts.
