Validation testing is essential for manufacturers to ensure compliance with NRTL product test requirements including UL/CE marking.
Electrical safety testing specialists Seaward have produced the HAL series that perform all of the applicable tests needed for insuring compliance with UL type tests, EU Directives, International, European and UK standards in one convenient package.
The ClareHAL hipot / ground bond tester will help you meet your testing and legal obligations, including data capture/logging/archiving. All basic tests, as specified in widely used product and safety standards, are included:
Earth/Ground Bond testing
DC Insulation Testing
AC/DC Flash/Hipot/Dielectric withstand testing
Functional/ Run testing
Leakage Current testing
The ClareHAL Tester can be used in three modes – automatic, manual and direct PC control via the external communications port.
In automatic mode complete test sequences are stored in the memory. New sequences are easily programmed using testcodes, or via menu driven choices. Up to 5 tests can be linked into 1 sequence, all tests are time stamped and results can be stored in memory. Automatic mode provides a structured, repeatable route to testing which ensures all data is collected for traceability and auditing. This mode is intended for standard production line use.
Manual mode provides a quick, simple route to tests and is intended for use in the laboratory, repair or re-test environments where ease of use and quick repeatable tests are are paramount. Manual mode can be initiated by a one button press and allows individual tests to be performed more freely. The type of test and its parameters are entered into the tester. The output can be maintained continuously, varied by means of the rotary encoder or timed as in automatic mode. A facility to store results is available although this is not necessary to perform tests.
