Care Home PAT Testing Starter Kit
These Kits have been put together for anyone wanting to PAT Test in rented accomodation. They contain everything that you'd need to start. But, if you can think of something it doesn't have or something you need, give us a call or drop us a line - we can probably help you there too!
Top of its class, the Primetest 100 is a functional, diverse and highly useful tool. Featuring three operational modes, it is an ideal choice for those looking for an easy to us, comprehensive unit. Simply pushing a button will give you the option of either PAT Test mode, Class I and Class II, IEC Lead Test mode or Power Socket mode. To further add to its easy operation, a bright display shows the test results values as well as PASS or FAIL indication. And like the Primetest 100’s family members, it is battery powered to help users be quicker and more efficient in their work. This is a great choice for those looking for a great, versatile tester.
- A Versatile Tester It’s a PAT tester, an IEC Lead Tester and a Power Socket Tester all in one super compact unit. This product provides everything you need for basic testing facilities.
- Easy Use Testing with the Primetest 100 couldn’t be easier. In fact, it only takes the press of a button to choose your testing mode.
- Hand-Sized –Highly Portable Measuring only 26x10cm, the Primetest 100fits into the palm of your hand. It’s lighter too,under 1kg, making it one of the smallest testers available.
- Power to the Battery Like its big brothers, the Primetest 100 is battery powered, making it light, portable and extremely easy to use because there are no cables to plug in.
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.
The BattPAT is our favourite, easy to use battery powered Portable Appliance Tester.
It is ideal for those wanting to carry out in-house testing of electrical appliances in offices, hotels, schools, nursing homes, factories and construction sites.
If we were designing a PAT tester from scratch, we would want to meet two main criteria; Ease of use & Speed. If you are going to be testing a lot of equipment, you want a machine that will quickly carry out the essential tests, not waste a lot of time booting up or going through a complicated diagnostic check. You don't want a machine which is going to waste your time carrying out tests which are irrelevant, and you certainly don't want to be scratching your head trying to work out which button to press to make it go.
Thankfully, we don't need to design a Batt PAT tester from scratch, because First Stop Safety have beaten us to it! The BattPAT is perfectly formed, easy to use, and above all else, super fast!
There are only a few buttons on the BattPAT - Class 1 plastic, Class 1 metal, Class 2, or Extension Lead. Not much to go wrong there. If you have to test an extension lead with a long cable, press the 'long cable' button first. And then, 5 seconds later you get a Green Light if it's passed, or a Red Light if it fails. It's pretty difficult to imagine how they could have made it simpler, or easier to use the Batt PAT.
