Smarter electrical testing
Seaward has extended and upgraded the combined electrical test and certification concept introduced by its new PowerPlus 1557 multi-function electrical installation tester.
The new features include enhanced test data management and certification capabilities which will significantly improve the operational efficiencies of local authorities, utilities, contractors and test engineers involved in large scale 17th edition electrical installation and periodic test routines in premises with identical circuit configurations.
The PowerPlus 1557 is the first electrical tester to incorporate an electronic version of the certificate within the tester, eliminating the need for dummy certificates and manual or PDA recording of test results.
Test data is automatically entered into the correct certificate fields as testing is undertaken and can be validated on-site without the need for repeat visits. Look-up tables are also incorporated within the tester.
When inspection and testing is complete, the certificate held inside the PowerPlus 1557 tester can be transferred to PC software for output and/or supply to customers.
Among the technical advances now built-in to the tester is the ability to download and merge data from multiple testers used by different engineers on large premises into a single certificate.
