IEC 61000-4-2:2008 Compliant Testing DevicesSan Diego, CA - November 17, 2009 -- Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is the sudden and momentary electric current that flows between two objects at different electrical potentials caused by direct contact or induced by an electrostatic field. The IEC 61000-4-2:2008 standard relates to the immunity requirements and test methods for electrical and electronic equipment subjected to static electricity discharges, from operators directly, and from personnel to adjacent objects. Such electronics vary anywhere from your kitchen blender to your home computer, basically anything containing a microchip.

It additionally defines ranges of test levels which relate to different environmental and installation conditions and establishes test procedures. The object of IEC 61000-4-2:2008 is to establish a common and reproducible basis for evaluating the performance of electrical and electronic equipment when subjected to electrostatic discharges. 61000-4-2 defines typical waveform of the discharge current, range of test levels, test equipment, test setup, test procedure, calibration procedure and measurement uncertainty. It gives specifications for test performed in "laboratories" and "post-installation tests" performed on equipment in the final installation. One can test up to 4 GHz when following this particular standard.

Advanced Test Equipment Rentals provides IEC 61000-4-2:2008 compliant testing devices including the Schaffner/Teseq NSG 438, NoiseKen ESS-2000 and many more.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
