Medical devices make physical or electrical contact with a patient, for the purposes of diagnosis, treatment or monitoring.
Engineers and technicians involved in the procurement, testing, installation, maintenance, calibration and operation of medical devices are required to ensure that they carry out appropriate procedures for acceptance, fault management and routine testing of medical devices. These procedures are outlined in “AS/NZS3551:2004 Technical Management Programs for Medical Devices.”
The Rigel-288AUS is a next generation tester that carries out the electrical tests required by AS/NZS3551 and stores results for download to PC asset database software. The Download Software manages inspection and test results, produces test certificates and schedules next tests to assist in compliance with the requirements of AS/NZS3551.
The Rigel-288AUS also interfaces via wireless Bluetooth technology to the Optima Tag Printer and BCS-Blue Scanner to provide the ultimate portable biomedical testing solution that weighs less than 3kg.
