SEAM AED Electrode Test Platform

Compliance testing to
ANSI/AAMI/IEC 60601-2-4:2018
made simple.

The SEAM design philosophy applied to AED electrodes...

The SEAM AED Electrode Test Platform has been designed to perform the compliance testing on disposable AED electrodes using a biphasic defibrillation waveform, in accordance with the ANSI/AAMI/IEC 60601-2-4:2018 (Sections 201.108.1 – 4, 6, 10c plus pacing).  This test system is available in 4 or 12 channel configurations.

Features of the SEAM AED Test Platform

  • Modular Design
  • Easy Scale Up
  • Intuative Interface
  • Full Range of Tests
Each channel includes circuitry to perform all the electrical properties tests defined in IEC 60601-2-4. Because this design makes each channel independent of one another, a SEAM tester is extremely robust to failures. If a failure is encountered, an operator can efficiently determine the root cause through swapping channels and samples. In the event that a channel has to be taken out of service, the remaining channels will continue to operate as normal.
Small research facilities find our 4-channel SEAM tester a cost-effective solution when they begin their development process. As companies move into production or increased test capacity is required, their original investment is not wasted as the existing components can be moved to a 12-channel bus and additional testing channels can be added to expand testing capacity.
The each channel features a pair of 0.063" sockets on flying leads which are used to interface the electrode pair. We can also design and build custom adapters to support any sample interface.

The SEAM hardware is driven by an easy-to-use application which can be installed on any PC (Windows 7 and up). This interface gives users the flexibility to design any test sequence in the laboratory. The software also allows test sequences to be standardized to ensure consistency during production.
The SEAM AED Electrode Test Platform can be used to test both adult (360 J) and pediatric (100 J) AED electrodes using a defibrillation pulse from a MegaPulse Biphasic P 360/100J (CE rated) from Compliance West, USA. The SEAM software drives the MegaPulse making the system fully automated.

We rely on QC Integrated Solutions and their SEAM ECG Electrode Platform systems to provide us with the electrical data that is required to meet our customer's stringent electrical requirements.
