Press Release


Service engineers can reduce the time taken to test the electrical safety and operation of a wide range of medical devices and equipment used in hospitals, operating theatres and other facilities using a field service kit now available from Rigel Medical.


The comprehensive kit featuring the Rigel 288 is suitable for engineers requiring a flexible, easy-to-use and accurate solution for testing devices for electrical safety to IEC 62353 or other appropriate standards and guidelines including IEC/EN60601-1, VDE 0751-1, AS/NZS 3551, AAMI, NFPA-99, MDA DB 9801-2006.

A state-of-the-art Bluetooth barcode scanner enables devices and equipment to be quickly and easily identified, while test results can be stored within the Rigel 288 safety analyser and printed wirelessly to the rugged battery operated Elite Test n Tag printer.

Traceability is improved as information can be downloaded into Med-eBase - the easy-to-use asset management software. This enables the user to store and manage test results, email html test certificates to clients and schedule new work orders, which can then be fully uploaded into a large onboard memory.

The compact, lightweight design and long life battery power of the Rigel 288 reduces downtime between tests, making the instrument practical and highly portable for multi-site use. It features easy-to-follow menu driven instructions for ease of operation and test control of all required electrical safety tests in manual, semi automatic or fully automatic test modes.


Users also have the facility to select from a range of preset test programs or develop their own customised routines.


A large internal memory facilitates the storage of test results for safety audit and traceability purposes. In addition, as well as storing the results of electrical tests, there is also the ability to record user defined inspections and measurements from other equipment such as SpO2, NIBP, ECG and other electro medical patient equipment.

The kit comes in a hard wearing, impact and water resistant Pelican carry case featuring dedicated foam inserts to safely hold the instrumentation in place and provide optimum protection during transportation.

Rigel 288 field service kit forms part of a comprehensive range of high performance specialist biomedical test equipment supplied by Rigel Medical, part of the Seaward Group.
