Sentinel Blackbelt’s new features make it even more flexible and multi-functional than before.

FREMONT, CA: The Sentinel Blackbelt from Cincinnati Test Systems has been updated with new capabilities, making it the most capable and multi-functional single-channel benchtop leak tester on the market today.

Blackbelt is a precise device with low space requirements and maximum performance. This makes it excellent for testing components and devices with complicated internal geometries and challenging physical qualities like flexibility and elasticity in high-volume manufacturing and clean room production environments.

“Our team has drawn on years of experience from the field working side-by-side with manufacturers to update Blackbelt with new features that make it even more flexible and multi-functional than before,” said David Kralovetz, Global Market Specialist - Medical at CTS. “Blackbelt remains the trusted go-to for manufacturers, particularly for medical devices and industrial lab environments.”

The Blackbelt has become a cornerstone because it has so many standard characteristics. Manufacturers can readily tailor their tests to meet a wide range of requirements. While Blackbelt is a single-channel instrument, it can perform various tests on up to four sequential ports for single components with multiple connection points or numerous unique parts. It can save all of the test results simultaneously.

Differential pressure/vacuum decay, Six extra standard mass flow ranges, Added manifolds, improved valves, Enhanced Test Station Control with 12 inputs/12 outputs, and Expanded communication protocols are among the new features of Blackbelt.

The newest Blackbelt also supports CTSnet LT. Plant staff can easily manage compatible Blackbelt instruments on the plant's network using CTSnet LT software, including configuring tests and copying/pasting new test programs to quickly configure another instrument, reviewing waveforms and other data generated by each test cycle and exporting reports, quickly upgrading instrument firmware, and backing up and restoring programs and instruments.
