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.
The comprehensive manual, test result labels and sample forms mean that even someone new to safety testing can be using the BattPAT very quickly after unpacking. This is because it simply shows PASS or FAIL when a test is done. It is also safe for use on PCs and other IT equipment
This tester uses rechargeable batteries and is supplied with a charger - unlike most other battery powered testers which have to be fitted with Alkaline Batteries!
The BattPAT is powered by a rechargable battery, inside the tester. This is recharged via the mains charger, or for you mobile PAT testers out there - an optional Car Charger! We have used this machine extensively, and find we can get at least 400 tests out of one charge - that's easily more than enough for a day's work. Full recharge using the supplied charger takes about an hour from flat.
You might wish to consider our In-car Charger for the Batt PAT if you need to recharge, whilst travelling.
It is supplied fully calibrated and also includes the following:
Please note that the BattPAT is supplied fully calibrated. Some organisations require documentation to show that measurement instruments are within calibration. For example, most factories running an ISO9000 quality system require this. If you require a certificate . Click here for more information on Calibration Certificates
