Apollo 600 For Formal PAT Visual Inspection Needs
14th February 2014
Seaward’s most advanced electrical safety tester establishes a brand new approach to portable appliance testing by combining effective formal visual inspection with all required electrical testing functions.
In line with the latest HSE guidance on maintaining electrical equipment, the new Apollo 600 is specially equipped with a unique range of features to ensure that proportionate actions are taken on the inspection and testing of workplace electrical appliances.
The Apollo 600 upgrades the test capabilities of the Seaward PrimeTest 350. As well as an onboard risk assessment tool to help determine re-test intervals, the new multi-purpose PAT tester incorporates a built-in digital camera to enable high quality images to be tagged against appliance records for completely traceable electrical safety record keeping and maintenance.
We have put together a series of videos demonstrating 10 possible uses for the Apollo 600 camera. To see them, click on the image below.
Alongside this unique visual inspection feature, the Apollo 600 also includes all of the electrical safety tests required by the IET Code of Practice including, earth continuity, insulation resistance at 250V or 500V, protective conductor current, touch current, IEC lead polarity and portable RCD trip time, without the risk of tripping the installation RCD.
In addition to testing plug in appliances, the Apollo 600 is fully equipped to test permanently connected and 3 phase electrical equipment.
For broader safety requirements, the new concept tester can record a wide range of other health and safety inspections and tests, including fire detection and emergency lighting checks, and also has the ability to output a wide range of safety labels, test reports and certificates.
The Apollo 600 is complemented by the upgraded PATGuard 3 test results management software. As well as a universal risk assessment tool to determine the corrective actions for any workplace hazard, this intuitive software enables comprehensive PAT records to be established alongside asset management registers and full inspection and test reports with photographs as evidence.
