Significant time and cost saving benefits are provided by the new Sentinel series of bench-top Hipot/flash testers from Clare, which deliver improved type testing during product development or enhanced compliance testing in a laboratory environment.
The Sentinel 200, 500 and 501 electrical safety testers enable manufacturers to check their products in-house to ensure compliance with the relevant international technical conformance standards such as EN 60598, UL 1598, IEC and CSA C22.2 before being sent to third party test/approval houses. This can reduce product time-to-market, saving time and costs in the process.
The Sentinel series is ideal for R&D facilities and compliance laboratories, while design, quality assurance, and manufacturing and production engineers will also benefit from the easy-to-use safety test features.
The fast, safe and accurate testing of high voltages up to 5kV AC and 6kV DC is provided across the range while accurate testing up to 500 VA AC power output – allowing for 100mA tripping currents, a requirement in many standards – is available on the Sentinel 500 and 501 units. The latter also provides earth bond/insulation resistance testing.
