New Features Found on Associated Research, Inc's LINECHEK II Make for More Effective Line Leakage Testing
Lake Forest, Illinois, - Announced today by Associated Research, Inc is the addition of new enhanced features to their LINECHEK II model 620L Line Leakage tester for more effective compliance testing for medical device manufacturers. The 620L is a fully automated Line Leakage tester that is able to perform the most commonly required Line Leakage tests as called out in such specifications as UL2601, UL60601-1, IEC601-1, IEC60601-1, and EN60601-1 among others. The 620L also has the common measuring devices already incorporated into the instrument.
The 620L now provides added functionality to help medical device manufacturers comply with agency specifications for electrical safety compliance testing. A new MD Voltage Display feature allows medical device manufacturers to measure the voltage drop across measuring devices as called out in IEC60065 & IEC60990. A new Leakage Current Display capability allows the 620L to now fully comply with specifications requiring AC, DC and AC+DC leakage measurements. The 620L can also now record maximum RMS or Peak leakage current during a test.
The 620L can be configured for use in stand alone applications or as part of a test system when interconnected to any Associated Research Hipot or Ground Bond tester. For automated control of applied part test points, the 620L may be combined with the SC6540 modular scanning matrix. Lastly, Ethernet, USB/RS-232 or GPIB communication interfaces allow for the automated control of the instrument.
Additional features for the 620L include:
Choice of USB/RS-232, Ethernet or GPIB PC Interface
Perform patient lead tests as part of a medical test system
Continuously runs DUT during Line Leakage Testing even in reverse polarity conditions
Interconnection to Associated Power Technologies AC Power Source
Interconnection with any AR Hipot
50 Memories with 30 steps per memory
Most Common Measuring Devices built-in
Optional Functional Run Testing for additional measurements
Graphic LCD and intuitive menu system
Autoware Testing Software available for complete automation control
Handles up-to 40 Amp maximum continuous DUT current
The LINECHEK II model 620L is available for immediate delivery and is priced at $4,595.00. For more information on LINECHEK II or to view complete specifications please visit Associated Research's site at www.asresearch.com/products/linechek2/Default.aspx.
