230V to 110V Adaptor 16A (PTA 3)
This adaptor is for testing 110V appliances with PAT Testers that do not have a dedicated 110V socket.
- Kewtech KT71
- Seaward Primetest Range
- Older Seaward PAT Testers without 110V Socket
- Seaward Europa
- PATCH Tester
- Fluke 6200 and 6500
And any other PAT Tester without a 110V socket.
Please note that this adaptor is for PAT Testing ONLY!
We wire these in-house, and use the recommended wiring method which allows the adaptor to be used for PAT Testing, but will not allow a 110V appliance to be accidentally powered by a 230V supply if it is plugged into the mains, or if a run test or earth leakage test were to be carried out by the tester. Some suppliers wire these adaptors 'direct' which is very dangerous!
If your PAT tester carries out any kind of 'fuse test' or continuity test it will always fail this test (due the appliance appearing to be switched off.) You can safely ignore this condition and proceed with the earth bond and insulation tests in the normal way.
230V IEC to 110V 3 Pin Plug 16A (PTA 2)
Adaptor for testing 110V extension leads.
If your PAT Tester already has a dedicated 16A 110V socket (the yellow one!) then this adaptor will allow you to test 110V extension leads - in the same way as you test 230V extensions with a short IEC cable.
