The HCAI-2 High Current Arc Ignition Test System is according to IEC 60950-1:2001, BS EN 60950-1:2001, BS 7002:2000, GB 4943.1-2011<Safety of Information Technology Equipment>, UL746A, IEC60947.1: 1999, GB/T14048.1-2000, IEC730.1:1993, GB14536.1-2008 and other relevant standards. It used on parts and components of insulating materials or other solid combustible materials that are prone to flame spread in electrical and electronic equipment may ignite due to proximity or contact with electric arc, causing electrical fire and endangering the reliable operation of equipment and personal safety. This system is suitable for lighting equipment, low-voltage electrical appliances, household appliances, machine tools, electrical machinery, power tools, electronic instruments, electrical instruments, information technology equipment, electrical affairs equipment, electrical connectors and accessories research, production and QC department. It also suitable used in insolating materials, engineering plastics or other solid combustible materials industry.

Test principle: The arc ignition is repeated on the surface of the sample to 200 times, and the high current arc ignition resistance performance of the sample is evaluated by whether the sample ignites under the specified number of arc ignition.

System Configuration:
