Manufacturer of portable appliance testers, The Seaward Group, has upgraded and enhanced the range of test functions performed by its Supernova dual voltage PAT tester.

The new Supernova Elite advanced tester is now capable of testing RCD trip times alongside its existing flash/hi pot test and dual voltage testing capabilities.

The range of tests incorporated in this comprehensive test instrument means that all electrical safety tests can be carried out quickly and effectively on the complete range of workplace electrical equipment and appliances, says the company.

The inclusion of the RCD test is in keeping with the latest IEE Code that when extension leads or multiway adaptors are fitted with an RCD, the operation of the RCD should be checked using a test instrument to determine that the trip time is within specified limits.
