Kewtech KT71 PAT Tester Details
Highly popular amongst all levels of PAT testing users, the KT71 is a mains powered portable appliance testing instrument that is easy to use and ideal for use on different appliance types.
Whether you're an in-house maintenance professional carrying out yearly PAT testing, an electrical contractor or a person recently qualified after a PAT training course, the KT71 is an ideal entry-level product for use in offices, industry, retail and many other applications. Test results are easy to understand thanks to a built-in LCD screen which shows a full testing value and LED indicators on the front of the tester give indication whether the appliance has passed or failed a test.
The KT71 is suitable for use on Class I and Class II appliances, test leads and includes a specific earth bond testing procedure for use on IT equipment. It can also perform another earth bond test at 20A, 250V/500V insulation testing, extension lead testing with polarity and can test 110V appliances for earth bond and insulation via the use of an applicable adapter (sold separately).
When switching to live testing (in leakage current mode) audible warnings are given that the appliance is about to come live. A double button press is also required to safeguard against inadvertent switching on of an appliance.
KT71 PAT Testing Procedures
Class I Test
The KT71 automatically cycles through applicable testing procedures for this mode, starting with an earth bond test at 200mA followed by a check to see if the appliance is currently switched on.
An insulation test at either 250V or 500V is then performed, with the option also available to carry out leakage testing also available (ensures compliance with the IET Code of Practice which states that a leakage current test must be carried out when insulation testing is not safe to perform).
Class I 20A test
Performs the sequence of an earth bond test at 20A, followed by a check to see whether the user has not forgotten to switch the instrument on, then an insulation test.
The Kewtech KT71 insulation test has a 250V or 500V option and the test sequence has an alternative of a leakage current test instead of the insulation test.
This corresponds to the IEE Code of Practice which supports a leakage test where insulation tests cannot be safely conducted or are suspect.
Class II Test
The Class II sequence tests whether the appliance is switched on and then runs an insulation test. A leakage current test (touch current test) can be conducted as an alternative.
Leakage Current (Touch Current) Test
The Leakage Current Test is conducted at mains voltage, a load test and a leakage test is undertaken and the results are shown alternatively on the Kewtech KT71's screen. (Testing at mains voltage gives superior results than instruments that perform this by subsequent leakage tests).
