The EM-4310 Spike Generator is a transient event generator designed to create high amplitude, narrow width pulses which are coupled onto AC or DC power lines as specified by Method CS06 and RS02 of MIL-STD-461 and MIL-STD-462.
A typical electrical transient rises quickly to a peak value and then decays exponentially to zero. After the spike voltage decays to zero, the waveforms exhibit a ringing characteristic that depends on the load connected to the spike generator.
The amplitude of the output spike is variable from 0 to 600 V peak. Three different pulse widths are available: 10.0μs, 5.0μs, and 0.15μs. Pulse width is defined as the time required for the output pulse (spike) to rise to a peak value and decay to zero.
The EM-4310 can inject spikes onto AC or DC power lines in variety of modes: asynchronous, synchronized, or single pulse.
