Software, Device Testing, Electrical Safety
Definition : Device testing software designed to operate electrical safety device testers, control/monitor a limited number of the tester functions, and/or process data obtained while testing. This software may be intended to work with one or a few models of electrical safety testers, usually from the same manufacturer. The software may perform a variety of algorithms to facilitate the operation and analysis of the measurements performed while assessing the device electrical safety, and/or while processing and or receiving information from hospital information systems. Electrical safety testing software is not usually available separate from the tester but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the tester; the software is mainly used in biomedical engineering departments located in healthcare facilities. Dedicated electrical safety software intended to assess the safety of electrical devices and accessories, such as line voltage/wiring in receptacles and the integrity and operation of ground-fault circuit interrupters is also available.
