Lightning Testing and Surge Immunity Testing

Lightning and Surge Testing

Keystone Compliance offers engineering services for standard and custom lightning transient immunity testing requirements and surge immunity testing requirements. Lightning testing can be completed in single-stroke, multiple-stroke and multiple-burst testing. Direct lightning testing is typically required for exterior aircraft systems. Indirect lightning testing is required for most aircraft electronics, both internal and external. Indirect lightning simulates secondary currents and voltages that travel through circuitry and cabling. The testing is also referred to as a surge immunity test.

Below is a summary of the lightning test and surge test capabilities of Keystone Compliance:
