When choosing a PAT tester, it is important to consider the volume of appliances being tested and the frequency that these appliances will need to be tested. Where a landlord may be able to rely on a low-cost solution as they’ll typically PAT test a handful of appliances at a change of tenancy, a more involved facilities maintenance technician would be more suited with an automated PAT tester that has the ability store and download PAT records and automatically produce appliance labels.
All of the PAT testers we supply offer, at the very least, the mandatory tests recommended within the IET’s Code of Practice for In-service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment; these being an earth bond test for class 1 appliances to ensure the continuity of the protective earth conductor, the insulation resistance test to prove the integrity of an appliance’s electrical insulation and the polarity test for ensuring the correct wiring of power leads.
We do appreciate that choosing a suitable PAT tester can be a little daunting. We very much welcome that you use our PAT expertise should you require any pre-sales support.
