Watch the Rigel 288+ overview video

In this short video, Michael Walton, Applications Engineer at Rigel medical covers the main features of the Rigel 288+ Electrical Safety Analyzer and shows how it can test to both IEC 60601 and IEC 62353. 

The Rigel 288+ Downloader App

Transfer medical device test data straight from your pocket. The Rigel 288+ Downloader is an app built to make paperless and wireless data transfer possible for biomedical and clinical engineers performing electrical safety tests, using just a smartphone or tablet.

The app works by generating a PDF containing the test data that can be saved, printed or sent via email and attached to a works order or so they can be stored to a central database or a CMMS.
