ESD Guns offers Current Target Compliant for MIL-STD-461G CS118 Testing

Released 06.08.2016 - Roseville, CA

With the latest version of Military Standard 461, Revision G, released in December 2015, two critical electromagnetic compliant tests have been added – CS117’s Indirect lightning test and CS118’s electrostatic discharge test. Compliance and testing labs will be gearing up with test equipment to conduct as much CS117 and CS118 testing in house as possible. CS118’s ESD test, is similar to established ESD standards such as IEC 61000-4-2 and ISO 10605, has requirements for unique test equipment for the test as well as verification of equipment performing the test.

There are two unique types of equipment called out in CS118 most labs will be purchasing. A 2 Ohm ESD Current Target Is required with a tolerance of +- 5%, where commercial standards had more flexible resistance values. ESD Guns has launched the CST2, a 2 Ohm current sensing transducer suitable for CS118 and virtually every other electrostatic immunity standard. The target is in stock and one of the more economically priced targets on the market. High voltage ESD meter, the other unique requirement in MIL-STD-461G CS118, as well other useful testing accessories are now in stock at ESD Guns.

CST2 ESD targets are in stock and available for rental, purchase new as well as used (when available). Contact ESD Guns for a price quote or more information.
