ZESTRON and GEN3 Systems Collaboration

Jan 21, 2021

ZESTRON and GEN3 Systems is proud to announce their collaboration on a new test service for the US electronics Industry to help develop Objective Evidence required by the latest release of IPC-J-STD-001 Revision H.

Located in Manassas, Virginia, ZESTRON is the global leading provider of high precision cleaning products, services, and training solutions in the electronics manufacturing and semiconductor industries. ZESTRON operates eight technical centers worldwide with the industry’s most knowledgeable team of engineers.

When asked about this exciting collaboration with Gen3 Systems, ZESTRON’s Executive Vice President Mark McNeil said “Obtaining Objective Evidence when trying to qualify and periodically monitor a process is key and GEN3 was the right partner for us to achieve this capability in-house via their AutoSIR unit.  ZESTRON remains committed to continuously increasing our ability to provide value-added services when it comes to process qualification.”

GEN3, manufacturers of the AutoSIR™, AutoCAF™, and CM Series PICT test instruments, have supplied this equipment and helped establish this new test service.

GEN3 Chairman and CEO Graham Naisbitt said, “It is always an issue trying to demonstrate SIR measurement and process control equipment especially during the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions. Having our equipment available in such a well-suited facility means that customers can more easily and better evaluate their requirements in achieving the desired Objective Evidence”.

Measuring changes in insulation resistance is neither fast nor straightforward. However, users will have access to data to ascertain when and at which point in their assembly process, ECM problems appear. This will help evaluation of the material set, so vital in determining electro-chemical compatibility between each assembly step.

ZESTRON’s Manassas technical center permits testing pre-prepared IPC B52 test coupons or a B53 coupon for material pre-screening.


ZESTRON is headquartered in Manassas, Virginia and operates in more than 35 countries. With eight technical centers worldwide and the industry’s most knowledgeable team of engineers focused on high precision cleaning, ZESTRON’s commitment to ensuring that its customers surpass even the most stringent cleaning requirements is without equal.
