Typical short circuit current waveform from the F-170808-1033 taken at 5 pulses per second with a ten second persistence of the scope display and using a model F-65 current probe. The amplitude is a function of the external loop inductance.
The FCC-TG-115A is a coaxial charge line type of pulse generator designed to generate a trapezoidal shape output pulse. It is designed primarily to drive current injection probes to inductively couple current onto cables bundles to satisfy the CS-115 test requirements of Mil Std. 461/462D,E,F. It can, however, also be used to directly drive loads without using the inductive coupling.
The FCC-TG-EFT is a capacitive discharge type of pulse generator designed to generate a 5ns x 50ns double exponential shape output pulse. It is designed primarily to drive small loop antennas to generate very localized magnetic (H) fields having the wave shape of the electrical fast transient (EFT) specified in IEC 61000-4-4. These localized H fields are used to determine susceptibility of Integrated Circuits or other circuitry to the EFT.
The family of P-2DC suitcase style pulse generators can be customized to provide double exponential or oscillatory waveforms. Direct drive of a target or inductively coupled drive of a wire, cable bundle, or conduit are available. The standard configuration allows a continuously adjustable DC charge voltage from 0 to 15 kV. An option is available to extend this charge voltage to 30 kV by filling the suitcase volume with sulfur hexafluoride (SF6).
The P-2DC operates off either internal rechargeable batteries or from an external AC power adaptor/battery charger. It is easily carried and the cover is removable for access to the controls.
