Tests IEC 60601-1 - Grounding Resistance, Leakage Current and Dielectric Rigidity in an automated way

Good Morning!
We are an electromedical manufacturer and would like to ask you a question, which device do you use to test the 60601 (Grounding Resistance, Leakage Current and Dielectric Rigidity) in an automated way? Example only one model of ours each lot is about 1,000 units, and according to we interpret we have to do 100% of the lot, the tests take about 40 minutes per device, we would like to shorten this time

One example here:
The Rigel 288+ Electrical Safety Analyzer from Rigel Medical

(Disclosure - no connections)

It can be set up with a pre-programmed set of tests and limits, can record results to computer etc. and can be quite quick.
It is not entirely 'hands free'; typically, you would still need to use a probe for earth bond tests.

Also note that it does not do the dielectric part of the tests - you'll need another machine for that.

I believe that other manufacturers do similar equipment - for example Fluke, but I do not have experience of those.
