Clare SwitchSmart
8 channel switching matrix - Overview

Used in conjunction with the HAL 104 tester, the SwitchSmart provides the capability for automatic electrical safety testing between multiple test points or testing multiple products simultaneously. This allows for unrivalled speed and efficiency coupled with the high level of safety that the modern production line needs.

Clare has developed a versatile modular eight channel switching matrix which can be used to apply high voltage or high current electrical safety tests to multiple test points or products.

Applications include any equipment which requires testing for earth / ground bonding, High voltage hipot / flash or power leakage. Each switch port is capable of being programmed to carry out all available test functions the HAL 104 offers.

Clare SwitchSmart 8 channel switching matrix



  • Increase safety and productivity.
  • Improves operator safety from shock.
  • 16 switch ports providing 8 channels.
  • Up to 5kV AC or 6kV DC Flash / Hipot.
  • Simultaneous testing of four products.
  • High voltage, high current capability.
  • Up to 40 Amp earth bond.
  • Full powered leakage capability.
  • Up to 256 sequential tests on a single product.

SwitchSmart Users
Most appropriate for medium-large scale electrical manufactures:

  • Product and Manufacturing Engineers / Managers / Directors.
  • Quality Managers / Directors.
  • Operations Managers / Directors.


This eight channel switching matrix has been designed for easy interface with the HAL 104 to allow for simple yet high specification testing system. The unit can be used with the HAL 104 alone or integrated into larger automation projects. Used with Safety e-Base there is even greater flexibility allowing bespoke test sequences to be allocated to specific product / part numbers.
