Seaward’s new approach to PAT
Seaward’s latest electrical safety tester establishes a brand new approach to portable appliance testing.
Uniquely, the innovative new Apollo 600 is equipped with on-board risk assessment tools to assist the user and ensure a proportionate response to the inspection and testing of electrical equipment.
The new multi-purpose PAT tester combines electrical testing with sophisticated safety data collection and handling features, including an on-board digital camera, to help those involved in maintaining safety in the workplace to demonstrate compliance with all the latest guidance on inspection and testing programmes.
In this way, the combined risk assessment and electrical safety inspection and testing capabilities of the Apollo have been specially designed to mirror the latest advice provided by HSE and the fourth edition of the IET Code of Practice for compliance with the Electricity At Work Regulations 1989, and Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999.
The Apollo includes all of the electrical safety tests required by the IET Code of Practice including earth continuity, insulation resistance at 250V or 500V, protective conductor current, touch current, IEC lead polarity and portable RCD trip time, without the risk of tripping the installation RCD.
