That's good information Mike ... thanks for posting it. smile

Are any of them battery powered? think

I was also wondering about BC Group (I like their kit); but I don't see any mention of 62353 there. frown

I don’t like most of the BC Group products as they only perform the protective conductor resistance test using 10mA. The minimum for many standards, like 62353, is 200mA. I see they do one model that is a re-badged Gossen Metrawatt device, so assume this will cover 62353.

Yes; well spotted. I believe that many BC items are re-badged from OEMs. I suspect Dale in the case of the "10 mA" testers you mention. But their range overall is more or less complete, and their catalogue is very good.

I assume that the Gossen Metrawatt is the SA-2500. The manual for that one does indeed mention 62353 (and VDE 0751-1), as it does the "Alternative Measurement Method". As well as a 200 mA PE test current.

Meanwhile, here is a handy source of BC User Manuals. smile

Another meter you can add to the list is the Metrel MI 3360 M. (Must have the M designation so it includes the IEC 62353 tests). Also the GMW TG euro 1 med and the Gossen Metrawatt Secutest Pro (M7050-V003) can perform IEC 62353 testing including applied parts. I see the GMC Secutest Pro is also listed on the RS website.

Also to answer the original posters question, IEC 62353 (BS EN 62353) should be used in the UK as mentioned in the MHRA Managing Medical Devices (2015) publication. This states not to use 60601-1 tests (page 22) and to use 62353 (page 24).

M for Medical? think

And yes; that Secutest Pro really looks "the business"! smile
