Surge Generators

Surge Generators

The EMC Shop stocks surge generators for conducted immunity compliance testing. Most current models of surge generators include an integrated coupling decoupling network capable of applying power to single phase DUT up to 16 Amps. Additional 3 phase coupling networks are available for most surge generator. Data line CDN's allow for testing of ethernet, USB and other high speen communication/power lines.

Test Standards: Surge Generators

Waveform & Levels : Surge Generators

  • IEC/EN 61000-4-5 specifies two Combination Wave pulses: Open Circuit Voltage Short Circuit Current
  • A common combination wave test is the 1.2/50 & 8/20
  • Another common wave test is the 10/700 & 5/320, or otherwise known as telecom wave
  • The four standard test levels , excluded of EUT: 0.5, 1, 2, 4 kV (0.25, 0.5, 1, 2 kA) Surge Test Environment
