One of the most requested product lines which are supplied by us here at Test Equipment are Test & Tag Machines, otherwise known as PAT Testers (PAT is an abbreviation of Portable Appliance Test). All of these machines are capable of undertaking different tests, all to the relevant Australian Standards. The only thing that tends to differ as you go up the range (apart from price) is the functionality of each unit.

 

For example, the entry level units are capable of performing insulation tests, earth continuity tests and current leakage tests in one handy unit, some units can also test RCD trip swithces for correct operation, and some units have a built in memory to allow the user to save the results for downloading to a PC, eliminating the requirement to manually complete a log book. The higher level units are fully automated and allow tags to be printed on site and fully manage client assets.
