Why the GW INSTEK GLC-9000 Leakage Current Tester?
Leakage Current testing is one of electrical safety test. Should a product perform the leakage current test? Depending on the type of equipment, acceptable levels of leakage current have been determined and are generally outlined in the appropriate international or regional standard.
Unlike other electrical safety test (such as Hi-pot test), the leakage current test is an on-line testing, it means the DUT (device under test) is tested under a working condition; other electrical safety test tests the DUT with a off-line condition.
Leakage current is measured in such a way as to simulate a human body coming in contact with different parts of the product and then measuring the leakage current flowing through a simulated human body device or network.
There are several different types of leakage current: Earth Line Leakage, Enclosure to Earth Leakage, Enclosure to Enclosure Leakage, Enclosure to Line leakage, Patient Leakage I/II/III, and Patient Auxiliary Current
The GW INSTEK GLC-9000 leakage current tester, is used to perform leakage current (or called touch current) tests on medical electrical (IEC 60601-1) and general purpose electric & electronic (IEC 60990) equipment. This tester engages with nine measurement networks (or called Measuring Device) to provide the simulation of human body while the EUT (equipment under test) is taking a leakage current testing in compliance with the specific standards or regulations such as IEC, UL, JIS…etc..
In order to provide a simple operation environment, the GLC-9000 equips with large TFT LCD touch panel to configure system as well as to present the measurement settings information and result simultaneously. Besides, there are 50 preset testing conditions, which conform to IEC60990 and other standards, for general electric equipment can be recalled to reduce the setting time. In addition, 30 sets empty memory are available for user defined setting.
A Meter mode is also available for the GLC-9000, it uses the measurement terminal (T1/T2) to measure voltage as the same way of ordinary voltmeter. During the voltage measurement, the SELV function (safety extra low voltage) is applicable to detect whether the voltage value between measuring points exceed the SELV setting.
