MegaPulse DF-80PF DSW:
Surge Tester DF-80PF DSW - Damped Sine Wave Output DF80 App DD, Microprocessor

  • $5,420.00

The MegaPulse DF-80PF DSW Surge Tester is designed to conduct the test shown in AAMI DF80, App. DD, Table US.DD.1 and Figure US.DD.1 - Damped sinusoidal waveform parameters. The resulting waveform is in accordance with those requirements. For waveform and tolerance/compliance graphs and information, click here.

The DF-80PF DSW is built with 50 ohms output impedance. If another impedance is desired, please contact us.

The DF-80PF DSW is designed as a laboratory instrument with a duty cycle 1 pulse every 5 minutes continuous within tolerances. Other duty cycles are optionally available:
Option 60.  Allows one test every 60 sec continuously.
Option 12.  Allows one test every 12 sec continuously.

The power output of the DF-80PF DSW is 360J. A front panel switch reverses the output polarity. 

Positive and negative pulses can be delivered manually using the front panel buttons, or the pulses can be set to operate under computer control using the TestMinder Megapulse PF option.

Actual output waveforms are available for review in the Manuals section below.

MegaPulse DF-80PF DSW ships with cables, graphs of theoretical and actual waveforms, and a Calibration Certificate. One-year warranty.

  • Generates the waveform required by AAMI DF 80 App. DD, Specifications for damped sinusoidal output waveforms.
  • Designed with operator safety in mind: Set up the EUT to the right and behind the tester, and a right-handed operator will find himself standing to the left of the tester, allowing maximum separation.
  • Theoretical graphs and actual graphs showing the output of your tester are included with each MegaPulse Defib Surge, allowing easy sanity checks and proof to visiting agency engineers of test setups.
  • 360J output; 50 ohms impedance standard.
  • Reverse polarity waveforms available by pushing a button on the front panel. No need to change the test setup. Positive polarity indication minimizes errors.
  • Front panel voltage meter shows residual voltage in charging circuit for safer operation.
  • 1-year calibration cycle.
  • All test leads included.
  • 1 year warranty
