The MiniZap is a battery operated, hand held 15kV ESD test simulator for performing contact mode and air discharge mode testing. It is the defacto industry standard for ESD testing of products at the system level.
The MiniZap allows users to meet both the 0.7 to 1.0ns rise time requirements of IEC 61000-4-2 as well as perform "real world" testing with faster rise time waves to determine how a product will really survive in its intended environment. ESD is considered by many to be the most common cause of failure in microprocessor based equipment. Therefore, testing of such systems demands clean, reproducible waveforms to avoid producing failures where none would exist in the field.
The MiniZap waveforms not only meet the requirements of current standards, but also meets the requirements for waveform purity when verified using a wide bandwidth instrument. The MiniZap is capable of up to 15kV air and 8.8kV contact testing and offers a wide selection of options that may be purchased now or in the future to meet your testing needs. The MiniZap performs compliant level ESD testing in accordance with IEC 61000-4-2 and ANSI C63.16. This unit will be compliance checked, calibration is available for an additional charge.
