Designed for speeding up PAT testing and making things as simple as possible, the Seaward Apollo 500 is a modern, intuitive PAT testing device that ensures compliance with the IET Code of Practice and offers a number of extremely useful functions to the user.
A downloadable PAT tester, the Seaward Apollo 500 includes extremely large memory that can store up to 10000 complete test sets with quick USB download into compatible software packages (it’s also Bluetooth connectable as well). It’s also possible to directly upload information into the Apollo 500 from a PC in order to configure settings and store records directly on the tester.
Despite its large suite of functions the Seaward Apollo 500 is surprisingly small, and sits comfortably in the hands while testing. It has a full QWERTY keypad integrated directly into the device, five function buttons for easy access to the various functions of the device and a large size high definition colour display makes it easy to perform and track all tests (as well as reviewing stored information).
The Apollo 500 is designed to bring a full suite of electrical PAT testing procedures to the user with just a few button presses. Fully suitable for use in performing earth continuity testing, 3 phase testing, point to point testing on fixed appliances, RCD testing and suitable for use on IT equipment, the tester also performs other common required PAT testing procedures such as insulation resistance, IEC lead testing, protective conductor current/load, touch current, load power/current, alternative leakage current and power socket testing.
As well as general testing the Apollo 500 is compliant with the IET Code of Practice’s new rulings on risk assessments and includes a risk-based suggested retest period calculator tool which factors in the environment testing is taking place in and the type of equipment used to generate a recommended retesting date.
If you’re looking for an intituive method for carrying out your PAT testing, the Seaward Apollo 500 delivers every time.
