Not Available Not Available The ESU-2400’s advanced features allow for new test modes, such as Tissue Response Simulation testing.
Crest Factor Higher is Better 500 500 20 16 DFA Technology makes the ESU-2400 and ESU-2050P the most capable measurement devices in the field.
REM/CQM/ARM Testing 1 Ω steps 1 Ω steps w/ CQM-2000 1 Ω Steps 25/100 Ω Steps The ESU-2400 has better resolution for REM/CQM/ARM Testing.
REM/CQM/ARM Testing 1% + 0.5 Ω 0.5% + 0.5 Ω
(CQM-2000)
5% + 2 Ω Not Available REM/CQM/ARM Testing is a critical safety test for ESU Generators. High accuracy testing helps to ensure patient safety.
Pulsed Mode Measurement Included Included Not Available Not Available Many generators, such as the Conmed 5000, use a pulsed output waveform. The ESU-2400 and 2050P are the only choice for measuring this output.
DUT Communication Included Not Available Not Available Not Available The ESU-2400 communicates with a DUT, enhancing auto-sequences with full automation.
Automated PM procedure for ForceTriad™
101 steps
Included Not Available Not Available Not Available The Automated PM configures the output mode, power level, triggers the generator and validates the generator output. This significantly reduces the time required to perform the PM procedure.
USB 3 Ports Storage Input Devices Communication 1 Port Communication 2 Ports
Input Devices Communication
None USB Ports are provided for communications, storage and input devices such as a keyboard, mouse and barcode scanner.
