Lab Equipment

Postby pat4sb » Mon Feb 06, 2017 11:21 pm

I have a request to do PAT testing on lab equipment. These is mainly used to analyse fuel oils. equipment ranges from heating baths to very complex analysers. Has someone had any experience with this type of equipment?

Some of the units include a built in PC so my approach is to treat it as IT equipment. My concern however is that some equipment is very expensive. For example a spectrum analyser may cost GBP 150 K.

What precautions can be taken during testing to ensure equipment is not damaged during testing.

If your using one of the more up to date battery powered testers it will only put 200mA into an appliance causing no damage.
