   Ergonomic design and advanced functionality. The pistol-shaped NSG 435 simulator is designed to sit comfortably in the operator's hand, with current operating conditions constantly displayed and clearly visible. The NSG 435's microprocessor-based controller and multifunction keypad provide the operator with instant access to its comprehensive range of built-in functions. The LCD panel continuously displays the operating status and all user-selected test parameters.

   The NSG 435 has its own internal, battery operated high voltage generator. In addition to the pre-programmed, standard IEC pulses, the user can create custom tests using single or repetitive discharges with selectable rates and manual or automatic polarity switching. An optional mains supply is available for extended test operation or for use when the battery is being charged. The NSG 435 measures and displays true air breakdown voltages. It also detects real or valid air-discharges, thereby avoiding misleading discharge counts. This is especially important during long term tests and remote test setups.

   A range of interchangeable discharge networks is available, including EN, ANSI-IEEE, and ISO. The unit comes with a standard 150 pF/330 Ω discharge network for tests to IEC/EN 621-4-2. NSG 435 is supplied with standard accessories, including interchangeable test tips, a grounding cable and battery charger - all in a durable carrying case. There is an optional fiber optic remote control trigger for operation inside a screened room or enclosure. The LCD panel gives the operator a clear, continuous indication of all the test parameters, the operational status of the instrument and the current function of each of the five softkeys.


  • Programmable discharge voltage 200 V to 16.5 kV
  • Stabilized charging voltage
  • Pre-programmed IEC/EN 621-4-2 test settings
  • True air-discharge breakdown voltage
  • Battery powered
  • Compact and lightweight design
  • Comfortable use and convenient operation

   For very high voltage discharges, such as might be required to meet military specifications or for special applications, the NSG 432 ESD simulator system from Schaffner can be used to generate electrostatic discharges up to 25kV. The NSG 432 is a compact, hand-held instrument, with a range of high voltage discharge networks for testing to various standards, including IEC 621-4-2.
