Lightning Surge Generators

Lightning surge generators are used for lightning simulation testing. A substantial amount of test standards require indirect lightning tests on components that are going to be installed in commercial avionics, automotive, and military industries. These tests need to be completed on components, products, devices, and vehicles to meet immunity test standards. RTCA/DO-160 Section 22 and MIL-STD-461 require both single stroke and multiple stroke lightning surge simulators.

Avalon Test Equipment carries lightning surge generators to meet standard requirements. Contact us with questions or for a particular test setup.
