GLOW WIRE TESTER
IEC 60695-2-10, 11, 12, 13, last edition 2021
Glow Wire Test Apparatus
The Montecs / Dunel Glow Wire Test Apparatus is one of the most advanced equipment for GW Test performing. We are pioneers in applying a high level of automation to performance tests GW, GWFI and GWIT. Four versions of this machine are available.
Glow Wire Test Apparatus is required by several standards, such as: IEC 60695-2-10,11,1213 – IEC 60950-1 – IEC 60335-1 – IEC 60884-1 – IEC 60238 – IEC 60745-1 – IEC 60400 – IEC 60730-1 – IEC 60598-1 – IEC 61050 – IEC 60320-1 – IEC 61058-1 – IEC 60742 – IEC 60669-1 – UL 746A – BS EN 60695-2-1 – IEC60884 – BS 6458 – NF C20 -921-1 – IS:11000. MTCS3022 and DNGW695.
Series complies with all those standards above. This equipment is assembled in North America - Canada using the most advanced technologies and accurate certificates process according to IEC requirements.

Chamber & Design
The glow wire test chamber developed by Dunel was designed to allow the installation of the needle flame device. Using the same optimization in the lab environment.
Electrical design & hardware
Using strong hardware in compliance with the most important Norms, all components are UL listed. The electrical panel is easy to access for maintenance, thermocouple change, calibration etc. The electrical power-buss is dimensioned to minimize the noise, harmonic distortions and its design enable the installation of the refrigerated resistance holder, for sequential tests, when needed.
