Combination Wave/Surge generators are required to meet IEC/EN 61000-4-5, ANSI (IEEE) 62.41 and other conducted immunity standards requiring a surge EMC test. The EMC Shop stocks all types of Combination Wave/Surge generators for compliance and pre-compliance testing. Rent or buy Combination/Surge generators for individual tests or multifunction generators to complete an assortment of tests in a compact solution. Most systems can be easily upgraded to include additional tests as required.

Combination Wave/Surge generators are typically benchtop, but heavy equipment. When doing testing on three phase power lines systems usually require much larger coupling/decoupling networks which substantially increase system size. EM test environments with ground planes with connections to earth are required to safely use transient generators.
Common Combination Wave/Surge Tests
- IEC/EN 61000-4-5 specifies two Combination Wave pulses: Open Circuit Voltage Short Circuit Current
- A common combination wave test is the 1.2/50 & 8/20
- Another common wave test is the 10/700 & 5/320, or otherwise known as telecom wave
- The four standard test levels , excluded of EUT: 0.5, 1, 2, 4 kV (0.25, 0.5, 1, 2 kA)
