Next generation Infant Incubator & Radiant Warmer testing system

Introducing the vPad-IN, the next generation infant incubator and infant radiant warmer testing system that meets the requirements of the IEC Standards for incubators (IEC 60601-2-19) and radiant warmers (IEC 60601-2-21).

vPad-IN has all the functionality and scalability that you have come to expect from Vision Pad Technology products. Parameters are sensed inside the incubator environment and results are transmitted wirelessly to a 10″ Android tablet for analysis and display. Test parameters and test protocols can be modified without disturbing the equilibrium of the heated environment, thereby minimising test times.

Wirelessly Control Tests

Changes to test can be made without disturbing heat environment

IEC 60601-2-19 and 2-21

The ONLY Incubator analyser to test to IEC 60601-2-19 and 2-21. Follows Edition 1 and Edition 2 of Standard

vPad Platform

Built on the Vision Pad platform to give you greater flexibility and scalability

Automated Measurements

Measures all parameters automatically, following user defined protocols

Compatible with closed, forced air convection incubators and open, radiant infant warmers (optional)

  • Simultaneous measurement of humidity, airflow, sound, and 6 different temperatures
  • The only Tester available to test in compliance with IEC 60101-2-19 and IEC 60601-2-21
  • All sensors are independently movable, to be placed in positions required by the Standard
  • Sound level measurements may be taken outside the incubator for external alarm test
  • Results can be merged with vPad Safety Tests results and imported into commonly-used CMMS / Equipment Management Systems
  • Optional precision controlled heater permits testing of body temperature sensor accuracy
