Kewtech KT71 PAT Tester
The Kewtech KT71 PAT Tester is the new handheld PAT Tester from Kewtech Corporation.
PAT Testing just got easier with the Kewtech KT71!
The KT71 is setting the trend for future PAT testers - quick and easy to use, with a combination of automatic test sequences, simple indication of PASS/FAIL, and accurate values for record keeping. Using the rotary dial on the front panel allows the user to choose between Class 1, Class 2 or power cord (extension lead.) If the appliance is Class 1, the user can choose between the normal 20A earth bond test for 'normal' appliances such as kettles, toasters, washing machines etc, or a lower current (200mA) earth bond test which is suitable for testing IT equipment.
The Kewtech KT71 is an extremely popular PAT Testing machine, due in equal part to it's low price, professional appearance and great build quality.
Note this is a mains powered machine - it is NOT battery powered. It is, however, very quick and easy to use, and can be used one-handed. It is not quite pocket sized, but is certainly much more portable the standard PAT testers.
When testing power cords and extension leads, the KT71 will automatically carry out a Polarity Test, in compliance with the current edition of the IEE Code of Practice. The test results are shown on the digital display, although a series of LEDs on the top panel indicate red/green for Pass/Fail on Earth or Insulation.
The KT71 is designed for testing 230V appliances, and will carry out load/leakage tests if required. It is also possible to test 110 volt appliances using an adaptor (see below), although we would recommend a machine with a 110V socket is used if you need to test a large quantity of 110V tools.
Uses for the Kewtech KT71
We would recommend the Kewtech KT71 PAT tester if you need to carry out testing in a domestic environment (rented house etc) school, college, university, hotel, hospital, office, factory etc. We would not recomend it for construction sites, or factories with lots of heavy industrial equipment. The KT71 will test IT equipment perfectly well, although if you are ONLY testing IT equipment, then our advice would be to get a battery powered machine such as the Seaward Primetest 100 or BattPAT, which will be quicker.
For testing 110V appliances you will need this adaptor 110V PAT Testing Adaptor Lead and if you want to test 110V extension leads, you will need this adaptor as well 110V PAT Testing Extension Lead Adaptor
