ESD simulators, as known as ESD guns, provide a cost-efficient solution for electrostatic discharge testing. This type of EMC test equipment duplicates the release of electrical energy between two objects that have a potentially different voltage. This discharge can be caused by built up static electricity and often times can create a visible spark. Electrostatic Discharge is a key element of electromagnetic immunity testing. Common testing standards include EN/IEC 61000-4-2, MIL-STD-883, ISO 10605, and ANSI C63.16. We carry a diverse set discharge networks including automotive, military/avionic, and human body model testing to facilitate customer testing requirements.

There are two different methods for testing for ESD, air and contact. All of our ESD generator rentals provide tips for both air and contact testing. The contact testing method maintains constant physical contact between the simulator and the EUT during discharge. This method is preferred by many standards as it eliminates environmental factors such as humidity and temperature. IEC 61000-4-2 states "Contact discharge is the preferred test method. Air discharges shall be used where contact discharge cannot be applied."  The air discharge testing method is accomplished when moving the simulator towards the EUT until discharge. This method is the most common in field testing environments as it most closely simulates the real-world phenomenon. Testing is also done using both the positive and negative polarities. ESD Test Equipment Waveform - IEC 61000-4-2 Waveform
Electrostatic discharge is a commonly occurring electrical event and is mentioned and tested to by a wide variety of standards. Many standards have different criteria for replicating this discharge, often similar categories of testing have comparable requirements. These requirements were developed taking into consideration the given environment of the equipment under test. Often times, these require special consideration when considering choosing the most effective simulator to complete testing. We provide ESD simulator/ESD gun rentals for the list standards shown in the table below. Automotive testing requires special consideration given the many manufacturer standards and requirements. ESD Simulator Networks, Test Levels, and Related Standards  
ESD simulators duplicate this discharge and waveform allowing for testing of equipment to ensure functionality in anticipated environment. We offer a variety of simulators for rent each having benefits depending on testing needs. However, the majority of simulators have three major components a discharge tip, the unit holding electronics, and the power supply. Some configurations require a cord that ties directly to the power supply while others provide a cordless option. We also offer different ranges in voltages that can go up to 30kV. We offer from rentals from all the major suppliers including Teseq, EM Test, EMC Partner, and Thermo-Keytek. Our EMC test equipment rental customers have the ability to both rent and purchase these products online via our website. All our electrostatic discharge test equipment comes with an A2LA accredited. ESD Simulator/ESD Gun rental Simplified Diagram

Dito Rent & Buy New - EM Test 16.5kV ESD Simulator

Rent the Dito by EM Test a hand-held, lightweight ESD simulator that allows for air discharge to 16.5kV and contact mode to 10kV for testing to IEC 61000-4-2. A2LA accredited calibration is included in the EMC rental equipment price.Transient Specialists is the only authorized sale partner of EM Test ESD simulators in the United States. EM Test a leading manufacturer of electronic test equipment has created this product to simulate an electrostatic discharge between two different objects including the human body. 

The Dito rental comes with an 150pF/330Ω discharge network for testing to IEC 61000-4-2 and other EMC immunity testing standards. This cordless ESD simulator is powered by a rechargeable battery and has enough energy to 50,000 pulses at 16.5kV. Discharge tips and discharge networks can easily be changed without disassembling the gun; simply remove one and plug-on another tip or module

This EM Test generator comes with pre-programmed test routines allowing for user to easily test to EN IEC 61000-4-2, ANSI C63.16, and many others. The discharge modules are automatically recognized and the R/C configuration is shown in the display of the test equipment. The display is easy to manipulate and requires minimal effort to change testing parameters. The Dito rental comes with both air and contact discharge tips.
