Electrical testing – Seaward PrimeTest 250

Seaward says the latest addition to its range of portable appliance testers incorporates a unique range of electrical safety tests to ensure that all workplace electrical equipment does not pose a danger to users.

The new hand-held PrimeTest 250 is said to be the first electrical tester in its class to provide all the electrical tests required for compliance with the IEE Code of Practice for the In-Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment – and it also includes a host of other features.

These additional test capabilities include an RCD trip time test, a three-phase leakage test and a 250V insulation test suitable for testing sensitive electrical appliances and surge-protected leads, says Seaward.

It adds that the range of tests incorporated in the lightweight and versatile instrument means that most workplaces appliances can be tested using long-life battery power. The range also extends to powered earth leakage and touch current measurement tests when required.
