Product safety testing system upgraded
News Release from:
02 March 2007
Clare Instruments has upgraded its Elite electronic product safety testing system with the introduction of a number of additional technical features. The functional load test current of the new Elite has been raised to 16 amps making it suitable for the safety testing of the vast majority of domestic electrical and electronic products.
The upgraded instrument also features expanded PC control software. Automatic control of up to 20 programmable test sequences can now be incorporated for maximum efficiency and high-speed testing on large volume production lines.
Another new feature to reduce test time and improve productivity is the ability to input product serial numbers held on bar codes by direct connection to the Elite via a bar code reader.
Hipot, insulation, earth bond, leakage and load test sequences are all user configurable to the exact specifications of the product under test and this feature has been further extended to meet the needs of certain functional test routines.
For example, user analogue measurement input can now be scaled to match transducer input and the result displayed as a meaningful value, allowing the measurement and recording of other product features including flow, pressure, temperature and pressure.
With these adaptations and added features, different Elite instruments are available to meet national and international regulations for the production line safety testing of all electrotechnical manufacturing requirements. Individual test modules can also be incorporated in customised test station solutions for bespoke or application specific test routines.
