PATS Limited has again been involved from start to finish on the Megger PAT100 series PAT Tester that has been launched today. We were involved in the initial concept of the hand held testers and conducted field testing on both the PAT120 and PAT150.
The PAT100 series of hand held portable appliance testers enable simple, fast safety testing in all environments including offices, shops and business units. It is ideally suited to training organisations, easy to learn to use, tough and reliable yet with full functionality.
With rubber armoured cases and fitted with hardened, scratch proof glass, the PAT100's are exceptionally tough instruments, well able to cope with the treatment they will encounter on site or in the van. Trevor says "Its great not having to search for a power supply to plug the PAT into in order to carry out a test" This makes testing easier in a warehouse where there may not be an adequate safe power supply or if you just have to do a couple of tests somewhere.
There are 3 testers in the range:
PAT120 simple PAT tester offer Class I, Class II and power and extension lead testing with fixed pass limits; because it has two insulation test voltages it can be used to test IT and surge protected equipment.
PAT150 full functionality PAT tester adds to the offering Portable RCD (PRCDs) testing at 10 mA and 30 mA, separate tests for continuity, insulation, mains powered leakage testing and SELV measurements using the quick test (QT) button, and can be used for testing fixed appliances.
PAT150R is a rechargeable version of the PAT150.
