‘Plug and Play’ PAT Testing With The New Seaward Apollo 500
- Published: Thursday, 03 March 2016 08:46
Seaward’s new Apollo 500 provides fast and efficient electrical appliance safety testing alongside advanced test data handling capabilities.
Designed to upgrade the long established and highly successful Seaward Europa, the new compact and lightweight unit incorporates all the recommended safety tests for workplace appliances in line with the IET 4th Edition Code of Practice. These include point to point testing of fixed equipment and the testing of 3 phase devices and RCDs.
A large colour display and intuitive menu-based operating system makes the Apollo 500 highly user friendly and a built-in risk assessment tool aids the user in determining the appropriate re-test periods.
With both battery and mains power operation as standard, alongside fast start-up and power saving features, the new instrument is particularly suitable for high volume PAT applications.
The Apollo 500 also incorporates advanced data handling features that include an internal memory for up to 10,000 test records, USB upload and download to PATGuard 3 software, and remote data transfer to PCs via smartphones using Bluetooth connectivity.
Compatibility with Seaward’s PATGuard 3 software also means that complete test records can be easily and securely managed on a PC, with the fast production of reports, test certificates and client invoices.
Seawards unique user test option also enables those with a responsibility for non-electrical assets, such as fire extinguishers or ladders, to create customised inspection and test sequences and record results for complete traceability.
The Apollo 500 is part of the new concept family of Seaward PAT testers introduced by the Apollo 600 - the all in one multi tasking tester and health and safety management tool.
