The generator PG1275E is specially designed for conducted susceptibility / transient tests to voltage surge and spikes of 28 Vdc electric circuits in military vehicles according to MIL-STD 1275E.

The maximum permanent current is 16 A. This value can be extended to 400 A using the optional external diode module DM400. For the spike test, the current limit is given by the external 5 µH LISN. Different versions of LISN are available. The generator can be fully controlled by a computer through a RS232 or USB interface. An automation software is proposed to assist the operator in the measurement of the transient parameters including the energy content of the spike and the surge.

This equipment allows performing the following tests according to MIL-STD 1275E.
• Injected spikes
• Injected surges
Nominal operating voltage of electrical device under test (EUT) is 28 V.
Surge charging voltage is 200 V max.
Spike charging voltage is 2000 V max.
Nominal EUT current is limited to 16 A DC (400 A DC with optional external diode module).
