Sefelec Rounds Out XS Safety Testing Family with Addition of CXS40 and MXS1000

ANAHEIM—AUTOTESTCON—September 15, 2009—Global Test Solutions (GTS), a supplier of high-performance test and measurement instrumentation, and Sefelec, a leader in safety and hipot testing, announced the completion of its safety testing family, the XS Series. Premiering at Autotestcon 2009 are the CXS40 milliohmmeter and the MXS1000 megohmmeter.

The CXS40 verifies ground bonds with measurement capability ranges from 1mΩ to 1.5Ω with test currents from 5A to 40A AC with regulation, and test voltages from 6 VAC to 12 VAC. The CXS40 complies with the first of the four tests required by the Electrical Safety Testing standard. With accuracy of 2.5% it is suitable for testing any electronic device.

The MXS1000 performs insulation resistance testing ranging from 50kΩ to 200 GΩ (optionally to 2 TΩ) with accuracy of 1.5% and applied DC voltage up to 1000V, which can be ramped in 1V steps from 0 to 999 seconds. The MXS1000 is highly efficient, maximizing its use in laboratories and on production lines.

“With the addition of these new products, Sefelec offers a full range of high resolution, high accuracy, and high voltage safety testers,” said Arlene Meadows, principal, GTS.
