The Solar 8282-1 Transient Pulse Generator incorporates all the flexibility and technical excellence of the previous models and provides features required by specification MIL-STD-461B/C. The Model 8282-1 provides up to 600 volts peak amplitude for each of the 0.15, 5.0 and 10.0 S spikes. The output voltage rises steeply to peak amplitude as adjusted by the panel control, then falls exponentially to cross through zero at the duration of 0.15, 5.0, or 10.0 S as selected by pushbuttons. The voltage falls below zero and “rings” for a period determined by the inductance in the output circuit or the load. The peak amplitude displayed on the LED meter is the value that would appear across a 5.0 ohm noninductive load.


  • Provides outputs up to 600 volts peak amplitude for the 0.15, 5.0 and 10.0 S spikes into a five ohm resistive load (low source impedance).
  •  A wide range of repetition rates allows spike injection in terms of the pulse rates of items being tested.
  •  The single pulse feature enables controlled isolation of transient effects.
  • Adjustable pulse position on a.c. power lines relates the transient susceptibility to the real time aspects of digital circuitry served by a.c. power.
  • Transients can be injected in synchronism with repetitive circuit functions as required by Method CS06 of MIL-STD-462.
  • Remote triggering of single or repetitive pulses in terms of particular system characteristics.
