DTU6 Diathermy instrument tester – Basic Kit


The DTU6 can detect the slightest break in the insulation of a diathermy instrument. Such a break can be very difficult and time consuming to detect visually, yet may be sufficient to give a patient serious burns or the surgeon a distracting shock.

The DTU6 can be used thousands of times per year, bringing down the cost of testing diathermy instruments and saving hospitals considerable cash drain by eliminating the unnecessary disposal and replacement of non-faulty instruments.

The DTU6 is fully portable and lightweight. Its microprocessor- based design incorporates output voltage supervision and output power limiting for increased operator safety. The DTU6 is mains adaptor or battery powered.

Simple to set up and operate, the DTU6 indicates insulation faults by means of an audible alarm and high visibility red LED.

The diathermy instrument is simply passed through an electrode with the whole operation taking no more than a few seconds. Additional electrodes are available for minimally invasive devices, forceps and cables.
