Test and Tag Exit Lights Fire Extinguishers
Our services include:
Testing Class I – Earthed Equipment: Earth continuity test with our portable appliance tester (PAT tester) at 100 mA to 25 Amps depending on the appliance type. Insulation or leakage test at 240 volts on all appliances with internal switching that is only activated when the appliance is powered at operating voltage. For equipment with no internal switching we undertake a 500-volt insulation test.
Testing Class II – Double Insulated Equipment: Insulation or leakage test at 240 volts on all appliances with internal switching that is only activated when the appliance is powered at operating voltage. For equipment with no internal switching we undertake a 500-volt insulation test. Class II equipment relies solely on insulation for safety, i.e. has no protective earth connection, so the results of the leakage test are very important.
Testing 3-phase Leads and Machines: Inspection, earth and other tests as appropriate for individual 3-phase appliances are carried out.
Testing RCD’s: Earth continuity test, insulation resistance test, polarity check at 40 volts, and test for trip time of under 100 milliseconds.
More Information on Power Boards (multi boxes): The risk of fire is high when using a power board with no appropriate overload, particularly when used with high energy appliances such as heaters. All power boards must have an overload under AS/NZS 3012 2.6.10. AS/NZS 3105:2007 is the standard for all power boards and 4.5.3 requires an overload. For these reasons we fail any power board that does not have an overload.
Testing Power Boards and Cord Extension Sets: Earth continuity test at up to 10 Amps, insulation test at 500 volts or 250 volts, and polarity check at 40 volts.
