CaptivATE 4.1.1 Automation Software

CaptivATE provides an Off-The-Shelf Electrical Safety Test Solution for accurately performing automated hipot, leakage current and functional tests. Testing is made simple and fast by automatically downloading the test setup, conducting the required measurements and outputting the test results. CaptivATE automates the process of electrical safety testing when used with Chroma’s Guardian 19050 Series Hipot TestersGuardian 19032 Series Electrical Safety AnalyzerHybrid 19035 Wound Component EST Scanners, Sentinel series ATS, and the Chroma 11025 and QuadTech 1730T LCR Meters.

Testing Capability

Using the CaptivATE software and a Guardian 19032 Series Safety Analyzer, possible test functions include: AC or DC Hipot, insulation resistance, ground bond, earth leakage, patient leakage, patient auxiliary leakage or enclosure current leakage, as well as a functional check. Provides tests for ISO 60601/60950/61010/60335 requirements.

Plant-Wide Implementation

Multiple installations of CaptivATE (plantwide or globally) can share the same database, providing a central data location that is updated in real-time. A single installation license is required for each test system.

Automatic Loading Test Setup:

The test setup can be loaded and verified by using a bar code scanner to identify both the product model and serial number(s). This reduces the possibility of an operator selecting the incorrect test for the product.

Paperless Testing

Saves and prints all measurement results as well as product model number, serial number, time and date, test operator, test instrument used and test name. Prints and electronically stores product test certificates.

Increased Productivity

All the electrical safety and functional testing can be combined into one test system, thus eliminating the need for multiple setups and test stations. The intuitive graphic interface is easy and efficient for the test operator, reducing operator error.

Password Protection

CaptivATE provides four levels of accessibility (Operator, Technician, Engineer and Administrator), providing control of specific functions within the testing process.
