    Port Appliance Tester

    Few years back I had a training on Portable Appliance Testing and I was certified to do the PAT Testing. We are thinking about buying a tester. I am not sure what brand and model to buy. If anybody has idea about PAT testing equipment please let me know.

    I had some training on Tuesday and we used a Kewtech KT71. Good bits of kit.
    The trainer also told us these were the cheapest people but i haven't checked otherwise.

    This is what we went for: Fluke 6200 PAT Tester Kit 1

    The tester is easy to work but I have to admit that the software isn't the easiest to get to grips with. There might be a better version now though?

    I totally agree.
    I've found that we have saved time using Metrel Alpha equipment generally. Previously we used a number of different brands - including various from Fluke. But in my opinion, if its simplicity you are looking for, then go with the Metrel Alpha PAT...although we did get a good deal through them which helped

    You may need to (should) get re-certified though.
