Electrical Safety Software Manages and Records Test ProceduresJuly 26, 2019 by Scott McMahan
Vitrek has introduced QT Enterprise, a major upgrade to its PC-based software that controls the operation of the company's V7x and 95x lines of high-performance electrical safety (hipot) testers and 98X Series insulation resistance testers. QT Enterprise is Vitrek's feature-rich safety testing software platform that provides time and cost-saving features.
In test situations with multiple test points, the QT Enterprise platform can interface with Vitrek's 964i High Voltage Switching Systems to further automate the process. For complex setups, QT Enterprise can display detailed instructions and images to the operator to ensure proper connections prior to testing.
Summary of features:
- Configurations, test sequences, test results, users, and other system settings are stored on a local PC or in a central SQL database accessible through a network
- Test data is easily accessible, and a user may sort and filter a list of results based on specific needs
- Integrates with a barcode scanner to read DUT model and bring up the correct, ready-to-run test sequence
- Multimedia setup instructions can be incorporated into test sequences giving visual prompts for easy and accurate DUT hookup
QT Enterprise records the results of every test.
Provided filtering functions can recall individual tests for auditing purposes or perform detailed analysis on testing or product performance. Results of recalled tests can be saved as PDF or CSV files as if the test was just performed.
Vitrek says QT Enterprise provides a clean and intuitive means for creating and modifying a virtually unlimited number of electrical safety testing procedures.
Each test sequence can have as many as 999 steps to perform a comprehensive range of electrical safety tests including ac and/or dc voltage withstand, insulation resistance, ground bond testing, and others.
The software only communicates with the tester (and optionally, the switch units) when required to do so. Consequently, computer setup to define users, system configurations and/or test sequences can be performed without connecting to interface hardware or the units themselves.
