Portable Appliance Testing


Portable Appliance Testing is a series of tests to ensure the safety of all who use these appliances. It is a series of in-service tests that repeat the manufacturers’ safety tests.

These tests are conducted on-site using a microprocessor controlled test instrument and the results downloaded to a computer and stored, after which a detailed report is issued to the customer. A portable appliance is any item which can be disconnected from the electrical supply by means of a plug.
