Test adaptor avoids tripping
Seaward’s latest PAT accessory is a special new adaptor for effective RCD testing.
The adaptor has been designed to enable users to test a portable RCD or RCD protected extension lead without risk of tripping the main RCD in the installation.
Most Seaward portable appliance testers are already equipped with an integral RCD trip time test. However, when testing a portable RCD using a mains outlet on an installation which is RCD protected, the test may cause the main RCD to operate.
The new compact RCD test adaptor eliminates this problem by providing an isolated mains supply which prevents unwanted tripping of any RCD at the main distribution board or consumer unit.
The Seaward NTB-1 RCD adaptor can be used easily and effectively with any make of PAT tester or RCD test instrument.
The new NTB-1 RCD test adaptor from Seaward forms part of an extended range of PAT accessories that include PAT Checkboxes for regular in-service confirmation of test accuracy, pass/fail labels, Test ‘n’ Tag printers, barcode scanners and record keeping software.
