Fixed Appliance Testing
As well as carrying out your PAT Testing our staff are able to test your fixed appliances.
Fixed appliances are tested by carrying out much the same tests as used when carrying out PAT Testing with the main tests being a check of the earth continuity and the insulation resistance. Because fixed electrical appliances are often not fitted with a plug they cannot be plugged into a PAT Tester and are therefore often left untested which can pose a risk and raise issues surrounding compliance.
To carry out testing of fixed appliances we use our Megger multi-function testers which incorporate a range of test functions and are fully calibrated. We are able to carry out testing of fixed appliances at the same time as PAT Testing or on a separate visit to suit individual requirements. For electrical equipment that is not able to be turned off for safety or practical reasons such as server racks thermal imaging would be the next best option. Take a look at our thermal imaging service for more details.
