A visual inspection is conducted to identify any signs of damage to an appliance, such as loose connections, frayed cables, or physical defects. The tester will also inspect the appliance to verify that it is not posing any threat due to its incorrect usage or wear and tear.
In this test, the resistance between the earth pin and any metallic part of the appliance is measured to ensure there is no leakage in the earth connection. If the resistance value is low, that means the earth connection is working fine.
In this test, the resistance between live conductors is measured. This test also checks for any signs of insulation damage, leakage or any other signs of problems to verify that the appliance is perfectly insulated and safe to use. If the value of the resistance is low, that means the appliance is properly insulated.
This test is carried out for Class I appliances because they have earth connections to keep the user safe from electric shocks. In this test, the leakage current is measured from the appliance to the earth. If the leakage current value is low, it means the earth connection is working fine.
There may be some additional tests required depending on the appliance type, such as functionality checks, operational modes and checking for other safety features. Some appliances may require specialised equipment for PAT electrical testing.
Once the testing is done, the appliance is marked pass or fail according to the results. They are also labelled with the date, tester’s name and other comments. However, the records should be properly generated and maintained for future reference and must include the following:
Although there are no regulations mandating PAT testing at regular intervals, certain regulations are put in place to ensure that PAT testing is carried out regularly.
