Thermo Scientific/KeyTek MiniZap-15 ESD Simulator

The MiniZap-15 ESD Simulator Gun is lightweight, handheld, easy-to-use, and able to withstand long-term operation in rugged environments. The MiniZap-15 Simulator supports testing to the international standard IEC/EN 61000-4-2. And by simply interchanging plug-in tips, you can test to additional ESD standards, as well as do “reality checks” that indicate product performance in sensitive environments. The MiniZap tester does not use a voltage multiplier, and won’t introduce testing errors and uncertainties due to streams of artificial, high-level ESD multiples generated by a human discharge or by other ESD simulators.

ESD is the most common cause of failure in computer-based equipment, and susceptibilities often occur during installation and networking. The diagnosis and remedy for ESD failures typically require test procedures developed in R&D, but implemented by QC, manufacturing, and field service.

Practical and reliable, the KeyTek MiniZap ESD simulator and options are designed specifically for demanding applications such as these. It generates ESD simulation pulses that are real world, repeatable and correlatable – mandatory performance.
