For Contact Discharge (CD) up to 30 kV and Air Discharge (AD) up to 32 kV

The EMC-Partner ESD3000 is a light weight, hand-held battery operated tester. The modular construction enables many different test standards to be performed by simply changing the module. A broad range of accessories enable testing to many applications for contact discharge, air discharge and indirect discharge.

The easily interchangeable discharge modules (DM) quickly adapt the ESD3000 to the specified circuits of a new application. Each new module fitted to the ESD3000 is automatically identified and the corresponding program displayed. Modules can be configured to meet requirements for special component values but also so that the waveshape is correct using the defined calibration method. The modules contain all the high voltage circuits making the ESD3000 the ONLY ESD system capable of fully conforming to different calibration requirements.
