MiniZap-15 ESD Simulator

Demonstrate regulatory compliance and prevent damage to sensitive electronic products with the Thermo Scientific™ MiniZap-15 ESD Simulator. Electrostatic discharge, or ESD, is one of the major causes of device failures in the electronics industry. The MiniZap-15 ESD Simulator enables electronics OEMs to meet international regulatory requirements such as CE Marking while improving product quality and reliability. This handheld, self-contained tester features a constant voltage ESD simulator design that feeds back and monitors right from the tip to protect against multiple ESD events.

The MiniZap-15 ESD Simulator is lightweight, handheld, easy-to-use, and able to withstand long-term operation in rugged environments. The MiniZap-15 Simulator supports testing to the international standard IEC/EN 61000-4-2.  And by simply interchanging plug-in tips, you can test to additional ESD standards, as well as do “reality checks” that indicate product performance in sensitive environments. 

The MiniZap tester does not use a voltage multiplier, and won’t introduce testing errors and uncertainties due to streams of artificial, high-level ESD multiples generated by a human discharge or by other ESD simulators.
