fixed appliance testing

Postby handyplus » Tue Mar 05, 2019 7:50 pm

Hi everyone. I have contacted seaward technical support and I am waiting for them to get back to me, but I thought posting might find an answer if someone else has had the same issue.

So while carrying out in-service electrical tests, I couldn't complete a fixed appliance test in line with the IET with my Apollo 600+

I need to test an electric shower, but the isolation switch is outside the bathroom and there is no way the test lead is going to reach.

So I thought if I just connect a 30 meter R2 test lead to my Apollo lead and null it of, i should then be able to carry out a class 1 fixed appliance test. Unfortunately even with the extended lead nulled, I still get a failed result.

So how has everyone got around this problem?
