We are living in a technology-driven world, and we are highly dependent on electrical appliances for our daily routine tasks. That is why it is crucial to maintain electrical safety and minimise the chances of any potential electrical hazard. PAT testing solutions offer the best way to ensure electrical safety.
In portable appliance testing, all the electrical and electronic appliances are thoroughly inspected to ensure they are working normally and do not threaten the users. However, you must engage a PAT testing company in London to carry out PAT testing, ascertain the safety of your electrical equipment, and attain a portable appliance test certificate as a result, which verifies that your appliances are safe for use.
Con-Fused is a well-established firm that has provided services of PAT testing in London for years. We house only certified electrical technicians who are fully capable of carrying out inspection and testing safely and efficiently and provide a PAT testing certificate in London after thoroughly inspecting your electrical appliances.

Our Detailed and Thorough Procedure
Our technicians follow a well-designed algorithm to ensure maximum output for portable appliance testing in London.
Visual Inspection: A visual examination is conducted to check for any obvious signs of damage, such as frayed cables, loose connections, or physical defects. The tester looks for potential hazards, incorrect usage, and signs of wear and tear.
Earth Continuity Test: This test verifies the integrity of the earth connection in an appliance. It involves measuring the resistance between the earth pin of the plug and the accessible metal parts of the appliance. A low resistance indicates a good earth connection.
Insulation Resistance Test: This test measures the resistance between the live conductors and the earth or between different live conductors. It checks for insulation breakdown or leakage, ensuring the appliance is adequately insulated.
Earth Leakage Test: Class I appliances have an earth connection to prevent electric shock. The earth leakage test measures the leakage current flowing from the appliance to the earth and ensures it is within safe limits.
Functional Checks: Depending on the type of appliance, additional tests may be performed to assess its functionality. This may include running the appliance through its operation modes, checking safety features, or using specific testing equipment for specialised appliances.
Documentation and Labelling: After testing, each appliance is individually labelled as passed or failed according to the test result. The labels typically include the test date, the tester’s name, and relevant notes. Detailed records are maintained, documenting the test results for future reference and compliance purposes.
Our Comprehensive Testing Service
We at Con-fused provide PAT services for all kinds of appliances. Appliances for portable testing are divided into three classes, i.e.:
Class I Appliances: These appliances have a protective earth connection and typically have a metal casing. Examples include computers, refrigerators, washing machines, power tools, and kettles. Class I appliances require the most comprehensive testing due to their higher risk potential.
Class II Appliances: Also known as double-insulated appliances, Class II devices are designed to eliminate the need for an earth connection. Their additional insulation also protects against an electric shock. Examples include televisions, audio equipment, power tools, and some chargers.
Class III Appliances: Class III appliances are low-voltage devices supplied with power from a safety isolating transformer. These devices operate at extra-low voltages (typically 50V or less) and include laptops, mobile phones, and some power tools. Class III appliances have built-in safety measures and are typically considered to have a very low risk of electrical shock.
