I'm new to PAT testing, having qualified in the middle of the year and have just really started in earnest the in house testing of school equipment.
The question is this:
I test an IEC lead using the 350 and it passes the earth continuity. I then attach the IEC to its equipment and the 350 fails the test. eg. IEC 0.08 ohms, combined 0.13 ohms. Should I test the equipment with the supplied IEC test lead for extension leads, test that IEC lead and subtract the the resistance from the combined test lead/equipment test, before adding that sum it to the original IEC lead results?
If so, how do I record a pass when the 350 will only record what it gets?
