More info

The Thermo Scientific Keytek Minizap MZ-15/EC 16kV ESD simulator gun is a totally integrated lightweight hand-held tester featuring ease of use, and the ability to withstand long-term operation in rugged environments. By simply interchanging plug-in tips, you can test to risetime standards, as well as do ‘reality checks’ that indicate product performance in intended environments.

Multiple ESD events can be generated by a human discharge, and also by other ESD simulators that introduce additional artificial and energetic multiple discharges. The MiniZap does not use a voltage multiplier, and won’t introduce testing errors and uncertainties due to streams of artificial, high-level ESD multiples. With its constant-voltage ESD simulator design feeding back and monitoring right from the tip, you know the EXACT voltage at which you’ve tested. The correct tip voltage is maintained to the instant of discharge; it then drops to prevent simulator-induced multiple

The Keytek MiniZap MZ-15/EC test system is a self-contained ESD simulator gun that enables users to perform direct, indirect & diagnostic ESD testing via interchangeable plug-in tips. 

ESD is the most common cause of failure in computer-based equipment, and susceptibilities often occur during installation and networking. The diagnosis and remedy for ESD failures typically require test procedures developed in R&D, but implemented by QC, manufacturing, and field service.

Practical and reliable, the KeyTek MiniZap MZ-15/EC ESD simulator gun and options are designed specifically for demanding applications such as these. It generates ESD simulation pulses that are real world, repeatable and correlatable – mandatory performance criteria for a company-wide ESD test program.
