The mini burst field generators are particularly small. They are used to identify and eliminate weak points in electronic assemblies in the development phase. They generate a burst or an ESD field at their tip. The mini burst generators are guided by hand across the equipment under test (e.g. printed circuit board) with their field-emitting tips close to its surface. The weak points respond to the pulsed field and malfunctions will occur. The burst field generators can be applied to selected individual sections of the circuit board design to identify potential weak points (faults in the ground system, individual traces or IC pins). Separate magnetic (P11 and P12) and electric (P21) coupling allows an optimal adaptation of EMC countermeasures to the respective weak point.

The P11 mini burst field generator creates a magnetic disturbance field with a diameter of approx. 3 mm at its tip. Localized pulses can be transmitted via this field onto the surface of printed circuit boards and components allowing for weak points such as the sensitive parts of conducting paths, c…
The P12 mini burst field generator creates a magnetic disturbance field, which functions like a coupling clamp. This allows the disturbance current to be coupled into single conducting paths, IC pins, SMD components, and thin cables (flat cables). To measure, the P12 can be positioned onto the devic…
The P21 mini burst field generator creates an electric field at its tip, which is suitable for coupling into conducting paths, wires, pins, and components, especially SMD components like resistors and capacitors. Single conductors of flat cables or plug contacts can be tested.
