Clare Instruments, electrical safety testing specialist, claims the risk of an electric shock, during product testing, is completely eliminated with its range of test fixtures and enclosures.

The range enables the operator to carry out the safe and controlled electrical testing of a wide range of products within the production and laboratory environment, complying with the requirements of EN 50191 -Erection and Operation of Electrical Test Equipment.

The enclosures also meet guidelines laid down by the HSE in its document INDG354 - Safety in Electrical Testing at Working (which follows closely the EN50191 standard).

Power operated products can be placed within the sealed and protective environment of the enclosure for electrical testing. This avoids direct contact between the product under test and the operator, eliminating the risk of an electric shock.

Clare's enclosures can also be used for the multiple testing of products using the latest internal switching automation technology, reducing production test cycle time and improving product quality. Conductive foam nests can also be safely incorporated for testing Class II double insulated products.

Manufactured from durable hard-wearing aluminium extruded parts, the enclosures incorporate high impact resistant clear plastic panels, dual safety door switches and facilities for the safe discharge of DC hipot/flash/dielectric post testing.

Optional integral test connection automation, PASS/FAIL stamping and destructive test fail are available to maximise test throughput, and to enable the system to cycle without direct operator input.

All the enclosures can be used directly with any of the Clare range of advanced testers to provide a fully integrated, highly effective and cost efficient production line testing solution.

Clare enclosures come in a choice of volume sizes to meet most

* 400H x 400D x 400W mm (ENC1)
* 500H x 500D x 500W mm (ENC2)
* 600H x 600D x 600W mm (ENC3)
* 400H x 400D x 1000W mm (ENC4)
* 2000H x 1000D x 1000W mm (ENC5)

Dual door safety interlock switches terminated with two metre lead and three pole plugs are supplied as standard. Custom sizing and automation services are also available on request.
