  • vPad-RF is the smallest full featured analyzer for testing Electrosurgical Units (ESUs). Built on our Vision Pad platform, vPad-RF has all the functionality you have come to expect from products built on this platform. What really makes this product unique is its built-in HF Digital Scope and Spectrum Analyzer.
    • Digital signal processor (DSP) enables accurate testing of all ESU makes and models, continuous and pulsed-waveforms
    • Integration of ESU testing with HF digital storage oscilloscope and spectrum analyzer functions provides three pieces of test equipment in one
    • High powered RF load provides settings required for all IEC 60601-2-2 tests, including Covidien ForceTriad maintenance procedures
    • Wide measurement range - up to 8.5A
    • Pre-Configured automated PM routines for most major manufacturers
    • Works with vPad safety analyzers and automation apps.
