vPad Record Manager App Record Manager
View/Print/Convert and Copy Test Reports.

Record Manager provides direct access to all test reports created by the vPad Apps. Reports can be reviewed on screen. In addition, reports can be converted to PDF documents; printed to a wireless printer; or copied to USB or a Bluetooth device (PC) one at a time, or in user-selected groups. Test records can also be transferred directly to Dropbox, box, Google Drive and OneDrive. File management has never been so easy or complete on a basic manual safety tester.

Compatible with:
vPad-ES App vPad-ES
Begin your Vision-Pad Experience with a new standard in Electrical Safety Testing.

vPad-ES provides basic electrical safety testing in a new, rich graphical environment using an Android tablet. Testing can be done following the requirements of IEC 60601 or AAMI-ES1 standards. Operated through a 10.1″ Android tablet, intuitive user interface, a 25-point physical inspection checklist, and the ability to create test records on the go, running electrical safety tests has never been so easy!

Compatible with:
Taking vPad-353 to the New Levels!

vPad-623 is a second-generation Android App to run on either the vPad-ES 2 or the vPad-Rugged 2. Improvements were made to fully support testing in accordance with IEC 62353 using the Direct, the Alternate, and the Differential Leakage Testing methods. As individual tests are made, a test record is created in internal memory. The results can be viewed at any time or saved to a test report file for printing or distribution. A 25-point, fixed format physical inspection procedure is standard, and forms part of the final test report. Basic electrical safety testing has never been so easy!

Compatible with:
vPad-AS App vPad-AS
Expand your Inspection Capabilities, Standardise your Test Methods, and Reduce Testing Times.

The vPad-AS is an automation application for the vPad-ES and ES 2, vPad-Rugged and Rugged 2 Electrical Safety Analysers. This App provides the ability to automate the electrical safety test the way you require, to the Standard you want. Automation sequences, to follow the required Standard, can be created for as many scenarios as you can envisage, with no restrictions. These auto sequences can be named to your preference, with an additional description field to provide details of what the auto sequence entails – no more guessing. Test Instructions can be displayed, along with pictures or video to describe what to do during the test. In addition to this flexibility in creating electrical safety auto sequences, an Equipment Inspection, up to 50 steps, can also be tailored to your needs.

Compatible with:

Custom Auto Sequences in accordance with IEC 62353.

vPad-A6 is an automated Electrical Safety Testing App designed to use and/or create automated electrical safety tests in accordance with IEC 62353. By creating and customising auto sequences, users can categorise their managed inventory into grouped tests, allowing for consistency and repeatability. Including a test is as simple as selecting a check-box.

Compatible with:
vPad-NFPA App Large vPad-NFPA
Electrical Safety Automation Testing in accordance to NFPA-99.

The vPad-NFPA has now become the go-to-method for Electrical Safety Testing in North America. This automation application for the vPad-ES and ES 2, vPad-Rugged and Rugged 2 has helped many organisations standardise testing on the equipment they manage. Not only could organisations control the type of tests they do through simple test selections, but they could also set higher pass/fail tolerances to further increase patient safety. Automation Apps such as vPad-NFPA has helped organisations large and small to standardise their testing, delivering a higher-level of quality and consistency.

Compatible with:
vPad-STM App vPad-STM
Create Automated Electrical Safety Tests.

vPad-STM™ is a software application (App) which may be installed on vPad-ES 2™ and vPad-Rugged 2™ electrical safety analyzers, and which may be used in conjunction with vPad-AS™ and/or vPad-A6™ Apps to create automated electrical safety tests of arbitrary complexity. Such tests may be required when evaluating electrical safety of medical devices in full conformance with IEC standards.

vPad-STM provides these benefits when combined with the test capabilities of vPad-AS and vPad-A6:

Perform IEC electrical safety tests of equipment providing a variety of medical functions, where each medical function may have a differing number of applied parts (patient leads) and protection class (Type B, BF or CF) Perform tests which combine measurements from different IEC safety standards, for example, perform leakage testing per IEC 60601 in combination with insulation resistance testing per IEC 62353 Perform electrical safety tests in accordance with Edition 2 of IEC 60601, instead of Edition 3 which is the default used by vPad-AS when the “limits per standard” setting is enabled.

Compatible with:
vPad-CHECK App vPad-Check
The Ultimate Level of Automation.

Using a script based Checklist, the autosequence can now be any number of tasks, in any order, with pass/fail limits applied. Individual tasks can be almost anything: inspect, measure, pass/fail, electrical safety sequence (vPad-AS, vPad-NFPA or vPad-A6), etc. You will even be able to control other devices either wired or wirelessly, and import their test results. You can now create the test you want.

Compatible with:
Tracks the Test Equipment Inventory, its Calibration Status, and includes this information in Tests Records.

As accreditation requirements change, the need to follow the tenets of the Quality Systems approach to all aspects of medical device maintenance is becoming the norm. One of these tenets is traceability. One of the requirements of a good, traceable service, preventive maintenance and calibration program is the ability to demonstrate that the work was performed using appropriate, calibrated test instruments. vPad-Cal provides a tool to track the test equipment inventory, its calibration status, and include this information in the test record for a device through the use of vPad-Check.

Compatible with:
Equipment and Work Order Management system.

vPad-EQM is a simple and easy-to-use equipment manager app for your vPad system. Import your equipment information from any asset program that can create an Excel spreadsheet, or create it on-the-go as you encounter the equipment. Trace your work through work orders and test reports.

Compatible with:
Convert Files to be Ready in Almost any Program.

vPad creates test reports in a text file format. vPad-XPORT can convert those files into a format that is compatible with your CMMS program. Currently, vPad-XPORT supports CSV, XML and MUP file formats, but if you can define your needs, we can probably create a conversion that works for your organization. Works in conjunction with vPad-mT.

Compatible with:
vPad-mT App vPad-mT
Export Medtester Files to a vPad Compatible File.

If you are currently working with a CMMS program that produces medTester export files, vPad-mT will convert the files (MTEXPORT.ITM, MTEXPORT.LST, MTEXPORT.IDN) into a vPad-Check compatible file. (Pre-requisite: vPad-Check)
