The Simple PAT portable appliance safety checker is an easy to use battery powered, manual PASS or FAIL portable electrical appliance safety checker.
The SimplePAT PATS tester has clear Pass or Fail LED indicators that show if the UK 240V electrical appliance or leads being checked are electrically safe. You only need to press a single button and then the SIMPLE PAT performs both an insulation test and earth bond test, and then gives you pass or fail indications for both electrical safety tests. When testing extension leads and computer IEC cords / leads it performs a polarity test as well.
The SIMPLEPAT can also test surge protected extension leads often found in office environments around IT equipment, if you have any long extension leads in excess of 20 metres then press the long lead button, the internal test limits are adjusted so you are less likely to get false fail indications.
PAT Training Services suggest performing common sense visual indications on appliances to check for any obvious visual defects that may affect the safety prior to using the SIMPLEPAT. So look at the appliance first for any electrical, mechanical or thermal damage that might affect the safety, making sure you inspect the plug, flexible cable and the body/case and switches of the appliance. Appliances can fail during a visual inspection, don't be afraid to use Fail labels. This small hand held SIMPLE PAT unit is ideal for most smaller companies, offices, shops etc and service applications. It performs fundamental safety checks on Class 1 (earthed) and Class II (double insulated) 240 volt ac UK electrical appliances.

2 Item(s)per pageQ: is this tester suitable for PAT testing 110v equipment? with a appropriate adapter. Posted On: 08/11/2014 By: Thomas O'connorA: Hi Thomas, Yes, the SimplePAT will carry out all of the mandatory tests described in the IET's 4th edition code of practice for PAT Testing with the use of an optional 110V appliance adaptor.Q: Is the SimplePAT's insulation test voltage of 350VDC suitable for testing IT equipment in the line of the "soft test" outlined in Chapter 15 of the "Code of Practice for In Service Inspection and testing of electrical equipment" (Ed 4) which suggests 250VDC might be more suitable in contrast to the suggested default of 500VDC? Thanks Posted On: 03/10/2013 By: Neil WatsonA: Hello Neil, PC's in the market today (manufactured after 1995) have a PSU qualified by British Standard BSEN60950 which can, in fact, withstand a 500VDC insulation resistance test. Please bear in mind that portable appliance testers carry the test out between live conductors to earth, rather than across line to neutral, which would potentially cause damage to equipment. The SimplePAT is also safe for carrying out the earth bond test on IT equipment, as the current supplied to conduct this test is at 200mA. I hope this helps

I called up not having a clue of what tester to buy. I had originally looked at a tester that cost over triple the price of a SIMPLEPAT, but after speaking to a helpful member of staff I was assured that this PAT tester would cover my requirements as a landlord. I felt I was given honest and impartial advice and I am very satisfied with my SIMPLEPAT Tester. It really is as easy to use as stated on this website. Cheers!
