MIL-STD-331 / MIL-STD-464 / NATO AECTP-250

Helicopter 300kV ESD test system

Helicopters and aircrafts can electrically charge by flying through the air and colliding with dust, rain or snow. Discharges of a few hundreds of kilovolts can occur between the aircraft and the ground during landing or hoisting, or even between aircrafts during inflight refueling.

Montena has developed a system capable to produce electrostatic discharges (ESD) up to 300 kV, to conduct Personnel-borne Electrostatic Discharge (PESD) and Helicopter-borne ESD (HESD) tests according to MIL-STD-331, MIL-STD-464 or NATO AECTP-250 leaflet 253. The test system is built on two separate mobile carts, with the discharge electrode mounted on a height- and tilt- adjustable pneumatic piston.

Electrode adjustable in height (from 1 to 6 meters) and angle ( ± 60°)
Remote controlled operation for hazardous tests
Positive and negative polarity available
Pulse current measurement
