Electrostatic discharge generators(ESD) are machines used to generate electrostatic discharge (ESD) signals to test how much ESD a piece of electronic equipment can tolerate without damage. Van de Graaff generators are a type of electrostatic generator used for scientific demonstrations.
ESD Generator(It is different from ESD Simulator) vary by the types of components they are suited to test. The principle variable is the voltage an ESD generator actually generates. The voltage ranges of the generator will vary within the bounds of around 30 volts to around 30 kV depending on the size and tolerance of the electrical components it is designed to test.
Generally speaking, the ESD Generator is used in Lighting, electric meter, and household appliances filed, also the ESD Generator have to meet relevant internation standard, there are main several standards, such a IEC61000-4-2, EN61000-4-2, ISO10605, GB/T17626.2, GB/T17215.301 and GB/T17215.322, espectially EN61000-4-2.
