Performs ALL respiratory measurements on SCUBA, avionic and medical breathing equipment in real time, in environments that include submerged, hyperbaric 1000m to full vacuum.
iBreathe MKIV Respiratory Simulator
The iBreathe Respiratory Simulator MkIV provides the fastest test environment for respiratory testing of breathing equipment, including PPO2 control, WOB and resistance. It runs test sequences in minutes or hours that hitherto have taken days and weeks on first generation machines such as ANSTI and mechanical linkage machines. The time savings come from complete automation, allowing the user to do all tests in a single chamber run, without having to surface each time to change tidal volumes. The final report document is generated in real time, and saved on demand.
This 4th Generation machine provides larger tidal volumes and supports higher RMVs than older 2nd Generation breathing machines:tidal volumes to 6 litres, and RMVs to 180 lpm. The breathing machine may be immersed in water in test chambers, with the hyperbaric option, for pressure testing from full vacuum to depths of 1000m (3300ft)The entire simulator is portable.
The respiratory simulator comprises a full 4 Quadrant CNC controlled breathing machine that oﬀers all combinations of breathing rate, stroke, waveform (sine, trapezoidal and human breathing patterns), and temperature, with real time display of results via an easy-to-use LabView graphical user interface. The simulator is fully CE certified, calibrated and generates reports automatically into Word or PDF formats that can achieve an ISO 17025 test traceability, meeting tthe requirements of even the most stringent of audits and Notified Bodies.
