The Seaward Apollo 500+ 5th Edition PAT Tester is an updated version of Seaward’s Apollo 500+ PAT Tester and is compliant with the new code of practice, this includes Class 2 FE, protective and touch leakage limits to 5mA (as the new code of practice now requires testers to have a pass-fail limit of 5mA for all leakage tests) as well as other new tests as per the 5th Edition.

The new 5th Edition firmware will also be available to download free of charge for current Apollo users who will be able to update to the new firmware and benefit from the new test features.

Note: in existing Apollos touch current tests will be limited by the hardware to 3.5mA.

The 500+ is optimised for conducting extensive tests on portable appliances. Its large memory (capacity to store up to 10 000 records) makes it particularly well suited to high volumes of PAT testing. Please see the following video for an introduction to the Apollo 500+. 

The Seaward Apollo 500+ PAT Tester includes the following test features:

  • Low current earth continuity test with Zap circuit, guaranteeing accurate measurements
  • Insulation resistance
  • IEC lead test
  • Protective conductor current
  • Touch current
  • Load power/current
  • Alternative leakage current
  • RCD test
  • Power Socket Test
  • Class 2 FE

This instrument is also capable of performing point-to-point fixed appliance testing for earth continuity and insulation resistance. These safety tests ensure compliance with the IET 4th Edition Code of Practice and can be organised into up to 100 user-customised electrical test and visual inspection sequences. This tester also includes an integrated electrical risk assessment tool with retest calculator, allowing the user to determine suggested retest periods.

In addition to this, the Seaward Apollo 500+ PAT Tester is able to read and produce 2D QR codes. These capabilities are facilitated by additional accessories:

  • The Seaward Test ‘n’ Tag Elite 2 Printer allows the user to print labels with a unique QR data code.
  • Seaward’s new Bluetooth 2D Elite Barcode Scanner can be used to scan QR codes in order to access information regarding previous tests, thereby automatically populating the Apollo 500+'s relevant test fields, allowing the instrument to perform retests quickly and easily.
  • Available for Android and iOS, Seaward’s FREE QR Data Viewer App also facilitates the scanning of QR codes allowing the user to view test information which can then be shared via email.

The Seaward Apollo 500+ PAT Tester’s ability to read, print and utilise information in QR data codes is made possible as a result of its updated firmware. For further information regarding the firmware, hardware and compatibility updates pertaining to the Seaward Apollo 500+ PAT Tester, please see below.

Firmware Features

The firmware on the Apollo 500+ has made it versatile, practical and efficient for quick, mid/high volume PAT Testing. 

  • User permissions for Bluetooth
  • An option to delete particular results
  • The ‘View Data Menu’ has been improved to facilitate faster scrolling and a more effective search. The user is able to filter results according to various specifications, including the PASS/ FAIL status of each test.
  • The ‘After Test’ function includes the option to automatically print test results.
  • Leakage test settings include options for ‘Worst’ and ‘Last’
  • Items can be deleted from the predictive drop-down menu options allowing the user to tailor the interface to his/her requirements
  • The inclusion of USB on-the-go technology allows the user to download information directly onto an Android device
  • Downloaded files may be named using unique identifiers, ensuring that they are easy to locate
  • Measure main voltage and outlet wiring polarity using the newly added socket-outlet test
  • Asset ID is displayed on each test screen
  • Review Step allows the user to check test details before adding any final comments

Software Compatibility

In addition to the Bluetooth, scanner and printer compatibility of this tester, it is also compatible with the Seaward’s PAT Guard 3.4 Software with Time Manager (sold separately). This software allows the user to review results, create reports and manage teams of workers.

Hardware

The Seaward Apollo 500+ PAT Tester’s firmware and software compatibility improve its versatility, whilst its hardware update improves the instrument’s practicality.

The Seaward Apollo 500+ PAT Tester includes a removable, interchangeable, rechargeable battery pack; however, it may also be powered using a mains supply, ensuring that downtime is kept to a minimum.

Furthermore, the test leads supplied with this unit feature stronger PVC insulation and the probes have been designed to be sturdier, making them better suited to demanding usage.

In other respects, the Seaward Apollo 500+ PAT Tester’s design is similar to that of its predecessor, the Seaward Apollo 500/+ PAT Tester. It continues to include colour, high-definition display and QWERTY keyboard, ensuring that it remains simple to use.

The Seaward Apollo 500+ PAT Tester is an easy-to-use, plug-and-play PAT tester, ideal for testing high volumes of portable appliances. Its updated design ensures that it is practical, versatile and adaptable.
