Portable Appliance Testing

the EMS approach picture

Each electrical appliance is visually inspected for signs of damage.

The plug, cable and fuse are inspected. An appropriate test sequence is selected according to the type of appliance.

The appliance is then plugged into the PAT Tester for testing. The electrical item is then logged and labelled.

Upon completion, a PAT certificate is given to the customer with a breakdown of all the results.
