Built for low to medium-volume electrical production environments, this instrument combines seven different electrical safety tests into one compact unit. It can be used both as a simple manual tester or with varying degrees of automatic test sequencing. It has on-screen user instructions and a QWERT keypad, and can perform insulation resistance, flash/hipot, earth/ground bond, leakage, short-to-line and run/load tests. They are all individually user selectable, and results from up to 6,000 tests can be stored in the instrument's internal memory. It includes special safety interlocks and protection routines, and there are a number of available test station accessories, including warning beacons. There is also an optional safety label printer available to make test bags, labels and test reports.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
