Q&A Electrostatic Discharge Simulators

 ISO 10605 standard

 

Q1

What is the ISO 10605 mentioned in ESS series brochure and other sales materials?

 

Q2

Why should I use two different gun heads depending on the installed CR networks for ISO10605 ESD testing?

 

Q3

Can the combination of GT-30R discharge gun with its 150pF-2K ohm capacitor-resistor unit (Model 06-00074A) and 330pF-2K ohm capacitor-resistor unit conduct a compliant testing to ISO10605?

 

Q4

I am a user of the NoiseKen Discharge Gun TC-815R (and either of ESS-2000/2002/2000AX/2002EX ESD simulator main unit). Will additional purchase of ISO relevant capacitor-resistor units be good enough to make the ESD system compliant with the ISO 10605 standard?  

 

 

Q1

What is the ISO 10605 mentioned in ESS series brochure and other sales materials?

 

   

The title of the standard is "Road vehicles — Test methods for electrical disturbances from electrostatic discharge" It specifies the electrostatic discharge (ESD) test methods necessary to evaluate electronic modules intended for vehicle use.   The standard describes test procedures for evaluating both electronic modules on the bench and complete vehicles.  It covers discharges in the following cases:

  • ESD in assembly
  • ESD caused by service staff
  • ESD caused by occupants


The standard is based in part on the IEC 61000-4-2 and describes vehicle-specific requirements.  To fully meet the specific requirements, NoiseKen offers some additional items (optional accessories) to the standard GT-30R gun package.  
Also refer to Q&A "IEC 61000-4-2 standard" section Q1.  

   
Q2

Why should I use two different gun heads depending on the installed CR networks for ISO 10605 ESD testing?

 

   

The ISO 10605 standard specifies two different tolerances for peak current amplitude for four RC networks, as follows: +/-10% for 150 pF/330 ohm and for 330 pF/330 ohm and +30/-0% for 150 pF/2K ohm and for 330 pF/2K ohm. 

 

The 2K ohm type gun head has a lower inductance component than the 330 ohm type to obtain a higher first peak current value.  Note that a peaking effect (higher peak amplitude) for 150 pF/2K ohm and for 330 pF/2K ohm networks is done by the discharge circuitry but not by charge voltage adjustment.   This approach is more faithful to the intention of the standard.

   
Q3

Can the combination of GT-30R discharge gun with its 150pF-2K ohm capacitor-resistor unit (Model 06-00074A) and 330pF-2K ohm capacitor-resistor unit conduct a compliant testing to ISO 10605?  

   

    Replacing the standard (supplied with GT-30R) head with other head Model 03-00072A is necessary to meet the required waveform specifications. Also refer to Q&A 2.
   
Q4

I am a user of the NoiseKen Discharge Gun TC-815R (and either of ESS-2000/ESS-2002/ESS-2000AX/ESS-2002EX ESD simulator main unit).  Will additional purchase of ISO relevant capacitor-resistor units be good enough to make the ESD system compliant with the ISO 10605 standard?

 

   

Our company would like to recommend you to purchase the GT-30R Dicharge gun which is compatible with your ESD main unit.   TC-815R (and its predecessors TC-815P and others) cannot meet the requirement of 10 discharge per second applicable to all four capacitor and resistor networks, newly added in the 2nd edition of the standard.
