Fluke Biomedical, Everett, Wash, has introduced a new electrosurgical analyzer that tests all critical electrosurgical unit (ESU) functions, including precision power, current, frequency, crest factor, and load resistance. The QA-ES III can help verify the performance of electrosurgical units and ensure they are operating as specified.
The analyzer builds on its predecessor, the QA-ES II, by offering improved performance and wireless functionality. The unit is 5.5 pounds lighter than the earlier model for better portability, and requires no additional cables, leads, or hardware. Multipurpose ports and color-coded stacking leads are designed to minimize the number of connections necessary to test and verify the performance and safety of ESUs. According to the company, the QA-ES III also provides increased accuracy and range for measuring vessel sealing, contact quality monitor (CQM), high frequency (HF) leakage, and output power distribution in single or continuous mode.
“The QA-ES III has industry-leading performance and specifications for power, current, peak-to-peak voltage, and crest factor, making it an ideal electrosurgical analyzer for today’s modern high-power ESUs,” said Shirin Khanna, senior marketing manager at Fluke Biomedical. “It can store up to 5,000 test records on-board that can be quickly and easily transferred to a PC via Bluetooth or USB.”
The QA-ES III meets ANSI/AAMI and IEC industry standards for testing electrosurgical devices and features built-in automation for quick power distribution testing. An optional Ansur test automation plug-in also helps standardize work, shorten overall test time, and reduce error by automating preventative maintenance procedures with customized test templates and reports.
