Case Study #4

Equipment: model AL-300-HF-A power amplifier and model AL-T100-V25/1200-F300K/500K transformer
User: Kimberly-Clark
Application and Specific Requirement: Providing 0-1200 V rms. at the frequency range of 300K – 500K Hz for IEC 60601-2 and IEC 60601-2-18 compliance tests

We provided Kimberly-Clark with a model AL-300-HF-A standard wideband AC power amplifier to drive a model AL-T100-V25/1200-F300K/500K high frequency high voltage transformer. This system provided the required signal to perform the compliance tests for the IEC 60601-2-2 (HF surgical equipment) and IEC 60601-2-18 (endoscopes using HF insulation) standards.

Conclusion: A combination of our wideband AC power amplifier, which can go up to 800K Hz, and a high frequency step-up transformer (usually at the frequency range of 100K Hz - 500K Hz) can produce the necessary signal to perform the IEC 60601-2-2 and IEC 60601-2-18 compliance tests.
