Test Equipment Description

EM Test TSS 500M10 Telecom Surge Generator for Test Pulse 10 / 700us

Telecommunication networks are exposed to lightning. As a result, external telecommunication equipment needs appropriate protection to be immune to lightning shock waves. Surge Telecom TSS 500 series simulators are used to test the immunity of telecommunications equipment.

The TSS 500M10 is used to perform tests in accordance with IEC 61000-4-5 and related standards in accordance with the requirements of ITU-T and FCC 97-270 (part 68) for the Surge B pulse.


TSS 500M10 - pulse generation 10 / 700us and coupling network in a single unit
The TSS 500M10 is a compact tester for generating Surge Telecom 10 / 700us and 9 / 720us pulses, as well as the Surge 1.2 / 50us voltage pulse. The TSS 500M10 is not only the pulse generator, but it also integrates coupling networks for 2 and 4-wire test applications. The outputs can be directly connected to the Telecom ports of the sample under test. For Telecom test lines, EM TEST offers suitable coupling networks for 4 and 8-wire lines. Preprogrammed standard test parameters allow for greater convenience of use. Nevertheless, the TSS 500M10 offers the Quick Start test procedure, in which the parameters can be changed on-line during the test to assess the susceptibility level of an individual DUT.


Easy to use Zoom
The Front Front Function Keys allow the user to program these test procedures quickly and accurately. The slider allows quick control of all test parameters of the programmed procedure, and thus the test procedures are simplified so that each step is performed correctly.
