Fluke Biomedical, Everett, Wash, today announced a new addition to its line of electrical safety analyzers: the ESA609. The new unit is designed to be rugged, portable, and user-friendly, according to the company.

The 1.5-pound analyzer includes a carrying strap for handheld operation and a tilt stand for easy setup. A rubberized case helps prevent damage if the unit is dropped, and offers an ingress protection rating of IP30 to keep out contaminants.

The ESA609 tests to ANSI/AAMI ES1, NFPA-99, and parts of IEC62353 and IEC60601-1. It integrates all functions needed to test medical devices when patient lead testing is not required, including line (mains) voltage, ground wire (protective earth) resistance, equipment current, leakage current, and point-to-point tests. Its push-button design enables quick testing and fast transition between tests. Heavy-duty switches allow users to change polarity and configuration of the neutral connection between open and closed.
