Which PAT Tester
is right for you
?

Would you like your tester to be able to store test results for easy download to a PC?

Will you be testing portable RCDs, or surge protected equipment, and/or will you need to do powered leakage test?

Do you require measurement test result values?

Will you require a powered 110V leakage test and/or a flash test?

Would you like to store images against test results (e.g. visual inspection & failed appliances) for full traceability, complete other health and safety tests and inspection records, and/or use a USB flash drive to transfer data to and from the tester?

Would you like to upload assets for faster retesting, and/or have the flexibility to customise user and test settings?

Would you like to include asset details against test records (e.g. description, location, site etc.)?
