The Megger PAT450 Portable Appliance Tester is designed to test portable electrical equipment for safe operation. The tests conform to the latest editions of European regulations and standards including VDE0701-0702 and the Code of Practice for the In-Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment in the UK.
The PAT450 has a memory capacity for storing up to 10,000 test results, and also 10A and 25A earth bond testing. The unit also includes 1.5kV and 3kV flash testing, ideal for tool rental outlets and service workshops where flash testing is routine. It has a high duty cycle, with the design tailored to fast testing, easy operation, and all-day use.
The PAT450 features a unique restart, so that when moving the tester from one room to another, it restarts instantly from the same menu where it was unplugged. This is a significant timesaver, allowing more tests per day.
USB communication provides convenient download to a standard USB memory stick. An on-board 10,000 record memory provides interruption-free testing for improved efficiency, with a large QWERTY keypad for fast data entry. The instrument is capable of working with barcode scanner and a thermal transfer barcode label printer operating directly from the USB port. Thermal transfer labels are highly resistant, stable and easily available.
