New Rigel analyser for electrosurgical devices

Faster and easier testing
Rigel 377The speed and ease of electrical safety testing of electrosurgical devices is significantly improved with the new 377 high performance analyser from medical test instrumentation specialists Rigel Medical.


The Rigel 377 features a range of easy-to-use custom settings, including a variety of test sequences and power distribution curves which make testing faster, easier and more accurate.


Compliant with IEC 60601-2-2*, it is capable of checking to within high degrees of accuracy the correct and safe performance of electrosurgical devices during routine, type and production line testing. A large array of internal resistors, ranging from 10 - 5100O in 10O steps, provide extremely accurate and detail power curves.


Remote electrode monitoring capability is carried out using a rotary encoder, which also controls the potentiometer, scaling up and down in manual or automatic mode to capture the alarm using the on-screen dedicated fast key. Data can be stored onboard for future traceability.


Product features built-in memory, comprehensive data management facilities and the widest range of in-built resistors, while a large full colour screen displays easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions to ensure the correct connection to the device under test.


Bluetooth-enabled technology allows wireless connectivity to PCs and other equipment for the fast and convenient downloading of test data and the uploading of the electrosurgical device?s power curves and the manufacturer?s test specific programmes.


Output waveforms can be examined through a built-in scope output which allows for easy confirmation of the desired waveform shape.


Clear, easy-to-understand in-built graphics display connection diagrams, programme settings, power curves, alarm settings, data management and data analyses.


The 377 high performance analyser forms part of a comprehensive range of high performance specialist biomedical test equipment supplied by Rigel Medical, part of the Seaward Group.


Rigel Medical is based at Bracken Hill, South West Industrial Estate, Peterlee, County Durham, SR8 2SW.
