Tester for fixed and portable appliances

Testing for fixed and portable electrical appliances — Seaward’s Apollo 600.

Seaward’s latest multi-purpose appliance tester is equipped to test portable appliances and the point-to-point testing of testing of fixed appliances as recommend by the fourth edition of the IET Code of Practice. Specifically designed for risk-based portable-appliance testing, the Apollo 600 is also equipped to carry out the earth-continuity and insulation test required for fixed appliances.

The new Code of Practice recognises that inspecting and testing fixed appliances such as hot-air hand driers and water boilers can be more complex than for non-fixed appliances, but this does not mean that only visual inspections are required.

The Apollo 600 incorporates a comprehensive suite of fast and accurate tests for electrical safety to enable all workplace appliances to be tested, including 3-phase equipment and RCDs.

A built-in digital camera enables visual evidence to be taken during inspections. An integral universal risk-assessment tool enables hazards to be recorded, risk scores to be calculated and re-test intervals to be determined.
