Keytek MiniZap MZ-15/EC ESD Simulator (Rental)
The Keytek MiniZap MZ-15/EC is a battery operated, hand held 15kV ESD test simulator for performing contact mode and air discharge mode testing. It is the defacto industry standard for ESD testing of products at the system level.
The MiniZap allows users to meet both the 0.7 to 1.0ns rise time requirements of IEC 61000-4-2 as well as perform "real world" testing with faster rise time waves to determine how a product will really survive in its intended environment. ESD is considered by many to be the most common cause of failure in microprocessor based equipment. Therefore, testing of such systems demands clean, reproducible waveforms to avoid producing failures where none would exist in the field.
