IEC 61000-4-2:2008 Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) - Part 4-2: Testing and measurement techniques - Electrostatic discharge immunity test
EN IEC 61000-4-2 by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) sets the requirements for testing an EUT (Equipment Under Test) to withstand specific levels of ESD (Electrostatic Discharge) that relate to different environmental and installation conditions. This standard can be purchased at the IEC Webstore. EN IEC 61000-4-2 falls into the greater structure of EN IEC 61000 which covers broader EMC concepts. The ESD event can occur between objects or personnel and is difficult to predict. IEC 61000-4-2:2008 is not intended for a particular test equipment but as a general reproducible criteria to evaluate an ESD events affect on an EUT. ESD Simulators (ESD Guns) duplicate the abrupt release of charge and waveform created under required conditions. This standard defines typical waveform of the discharge current, range of test levels, test equipment, test setup, test procedure, calibration procedure, and measurement uncertainty. EN IEC 61000-4-2 ESD Discharge Waveform
EN IEC 61000-4-2 specifies characteristics and performance of the ESD simulator used. The standards defines the energy storage capacitance (150 pF ± 10 %), discharge resistance (330 Ω ± 10 %), charging resistance (50 MΩ-100 MΩ), output voltage (8kV & 15kV), and many other criteria that need to be considered. The standard sets 10 discharges to each test point for direct testing. For indirect testing, 10 discharges are required at both the vertical and horizontal coupling planes to each face of the EUT. There are four test levels for this standard with different corresponding test voltages. EN IEC 61000-4-2 does not define testing with pass/fail criteria but on the impact the event had on the EUT.

EN IEC 61000-4-2 Testing Criteria & Discharge Levels

EN IEC 61000-4-2 puts forth guidelines for testing both indirect and direct methods. This EMC standard sets the ambient temperature (15°C to 35°C), humidity (30% to 60%), and atmospheric pressure (86 kPa to106 kPa). It also defines in detail all of the required components of the setup. It breaks the setup down into three main categorizes table-top, floor standing, and underground equipment. The major components of the EN IEC 61000-4-2 standard include, ground reference plane, vertical coupling plane, distances, as well as many others. To keep costs low it is ideal to procure and modify both the vertical and horizontal coupling planes internally. Exact specifications of allowed materials and sizing are provided within the standard.EN IEC 61000-4-2 Test Setup
For testing to EN IEC 61000-4-2 we rent ESD simulators from EMC Partner, EM Test, Teseq, and Thermo-Keytek. All of these simulators meet the requirements of EN IEC 61000-4-2 and each provides unique testing and reporting methods. Each simulator provides tips for both air and contact discharge modes allowing for both methods of testing. We provide flexible rentals terms, as short as a week, to allow customers the most flexibility. The most widely used ESD simulators for EN IEC 61000-4-2 include the Mz-15,  ESD3000, Dito, and NSG435. We also provide options for testing to many additional standards up to 30kV. All of our ESD simulator products come with an A2LA accredited calibration and free technical support included with the rental. EN IEC 61000-4-2 ESD Simulator Rental Pictures
