Insulation Tester with optional Bi-Polar Fixture and Wire Tester

Designed for electrically testing electrosurgical instruments, the low frequency high voltage Insulation Tester is used to detect and locate defects such as pinholes, cracks and bare spots in the jacket or coating of laparoscopic and bi-polar electrosurgical instruments. The Insulation Tester is a handheld, portable unit that tests the insulation integrity of electrosurgical equipment for flaws in protective coatings applied over conductive instrument surfaces in order to prevent inadvertent tissue burns, which may occur during electrosurgical instrument procedures. Manufactured with a rechargeable battery, the Insulation Tester maintains applied test voltage with constant current source, features full test current at low voltages, limited output current for operational safety, easy to read LED Indicators, as well as LED display of alarm and battery charge. The Insulation Tester comes with the following reusable and interchangeable accessories: ground wire with alligator clip, ring electrode, tri-hole electrode, brush electrode, saddle, and case. The Bi-Polar Fixture accessory that works in conjunction with the saddle, ground wire and brush electrode can be purchased separately. Additionally, an optional Wire Tester accessory used with an HV Red Lead Wire is available for testing wires by locating and identifying defects such as pinholes or cracks in the conductive core.

Healthmark offers Insulation Tester Calibration Service for the MM513-100 Insulation Tester unit. This service allows healthcare facilities to send to Healthmark their McGan Insulation Tester for annual routine calibration to ensure that the unit is operating at the appropriate voltage. Recalibration is recommended annually and when the Insulation Tester’s integrity is in question. See the Insulation Tester IFU for further information on the operation of the Insulation Tester. A Loaner Insulation Tester is provided while your Insulation Tester is in for calibration.
