ST5540 - Leak Current Testing of Medical Electrical Devices

Manufacturer:

In order to prevent the danger of electric shock, electrical devices use power supplies that are isolated from parts of the device that may come into contact with the body. However, it is impossible to achieve infinite insulation resistance. Some leak current always exists, and its magnitude changes as the insulation degrades over time. The LEAK CURRENT HiTESTER ST5540/ST5541 provides an easy-to-operate solution for measuring leak current in electrical devices, making it eminently suitable for use in an extensive array of applications, ranging from production lines to equipment maintenance and inspections.

Measurement methods

Measurement of voltage drop across body simulated resistance points, Calculation and display of current values, True rms measurement, Measurement unit floats relative to instrument ground.
