ESD Guns


ESD guns, also known as electrostatic discharge guns and ESD simulators, are handheld tools which test products' immunity to electrostatic discharge. Technicians often rent ESD guns to complete pre-compliance or compliance testing for ISO 10605, IEC 61000-4-2, MIL-STD-461G CS118 and other ESD test standards.

ESD guns, also known as electrostatic discharge guns and ESD simulators, are handheld tools which test products' immunity to electrostatic discharge. Technicians often rent ESD guns to complete pre-compliance or compliance testing for ISO 10605, IEC 61000-4-2, MIL-STD-461G CS118 and other ESD test standards. ESD testing can be divided into three distinct types, each corresponding to interactions the device may have while being operated: human body, machine, and charged-device testing. A human body electrostatic test simulates a human body discharging static electricity and then monitors how the device under test (DUT) would respond to contact with a person. Machine model testing examines how the DUT responds to electrostatic discharge from another nearby machine, especially devices the DUT could encounter on a daily basis. Charged device testing simulates electrostatic discharge reactions that may occur in manufacturing environments wherein the DUT interacts with highly charged devices

Testing accomplished with ESD simulators is crucial to manufacturers seeking to achieve compliance with safety standards. Without ESD simulation testing, manufacturers can’t move forward with other testing testing to fulfill a variety of other key MIL-STD and ISO requirements in preparation for production. Advanced Test Equipment Rentals stocks ESD guns from the top manufacturers in the industry, including Schaffner, Teseq, EM Test, Thermo Keytek, and more.
